The Marine Corps Historic Half is perfectly situated halfway between the capital of the Commonwealth in Richmond and the nation’s capital. The hugely popular Marine Corps Historic Half has made historic Fredericksburg a fashionable spring weekend getaway.

It’s the greatest half in history!

It’s a 13.1 mile journey with support from the U.S. Marines. Participants must be 14 years or older and able to maintain 17:30 minute mile pace.
