July 11th, 2017

Cast your vote through July 21 for MCM Health & Fitness Expo

QUANTICO, VA (July 12, 2017) – The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) Health & Fitness Expo, annually held in the national capital region each October, is nominated for the Trade Show News Network’s prestigious “Best of Show” Award.

While the MCM is among five trade shows selected for the top honor, it is the only show nominated within the running and endurance industry.

Voting will be held through Friday, July 21. Anyone can cast a vote for the MCM Health & Fitness Expo.

According to The Trade Show News Network (TSNN), the shows were selected by a panel of judges for “initiating an ‘out of the box’ idea and for hosting a show floor that “created an unparalleled end-user experience.”

Last year, the MCM relocated its Health & Fitness Expo to the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center at National Harbor, MD. The Marine Corps Marathon Organization thoroughly utilized social and mass media channels to provide weekend transportation and event information to its participants.

The TSNN says about the MCM nomination, “we salute them for accomplishing the mission of a very successful event!”

The 42nd MCM will be held Sunday, Oct. 22 with MCM Weekend occurring from Oct. 20-22. Visit for more information.

The Marine Corps Marathon (MCM) is voted the “Best Marathon in the Mid Atlantic” and “Best Marathon for Spectators.” The MCM honors the dedication, sportsmanship and patriotism of its participants. Also known as “The People’s Marathon,” runners from all walks of life participate in the MCM, the largest marathon not to offer prize money. The 42nd MCM will be held on October 22, 2017 in Arlington, VA. No federal or Marine Corps endorsement is implied. #RunWithTheMarines
