You were warned this would happen. Just like Boston, the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) sold out in record time. Only 28 hours has passed since the MCM opened registration.

As of 4:00 this afternoon, the MCM closed its registration making it the fast sell-out in The People's Marathon's history. ""The energy and excitement of the runners is evident by the fast close out of registration and the constant action on Facebook and Twitter relating to the 36th MCM," says MCM Director Rick Nealis in today's press release.

If you are interested in running the MCM, you can still sign up through one of the many charities, go to the MCM website to see your options. "Running for a charitable cause adds an entirely new level of inspiration to the experience," adds Nealis. "With a wide variety of charities to choose from, runners will have no challenge finding an important cause to support."
