Marine Corps Marathon 2017

Physical fitness is one of the cornerstones of being a Marine. Without it a rigorous defense of our nation and our nation’s interest would be impossible. That is why the Corps and we support activities and events that promote physical fitness and that generate goodwill between the community and the Marine Corps. An event that is designed to do this is the Marine Corps Marathon which is being held on October 21, 2017. (A lottery for the event begins on March 22. The registration fee is $160.) Runners from more than 50 countries will be participating. If you are someone who is interested in marathon running and the Marine Corps, we advise that you register early for the event. A full calendar of events is here. There will even be special Kids Run event for children 5-12 one October 21, 2017. (This will be a one mile run only.) Active duty registration begins on March 2, 2017.

As we’ve said, we support any event that makes physical well-being a cornerstone of a well rounded life. For our part, our Marine Corps items for sale and our Marine Corps hats for sale are a way for those who do and have served to further demonstrate their pride in the Corps. We have a wide variety of ball caps that are not only attractive but that also have the Marine Corps emblem embossed on them and that also keep the sun out of your eyes while you run. No one who has ever served can ever fail to recognize the importance of staying fit. Now, let’s hope for strong community support at this and similar events.

About Skip

eMarine PX is an online retailer of U.S.M.C. specialties run by a group of Marine Corps Veterans. The idea to create eMarine PX came from our own experience with trying to find affordable Marine Corps products. As a member of the 26th Marines during the Vietnam War, we complained about not being able to find products for the 26th Marines and when we did find something they were extremely expensive to purchase. Hence eMarinePX.com was born. eMarine PX is the Official National PX for the 3rd Marine Division Association. eMarine PX products are sold exclusively online and through a printed catalog to be able to offer quality U.S.M.C. products at affordable prices. The management team has extensive experience with retail management which translates to fast and friendly service to our customers. The eMarine PX warehouse sits on 5 acres in the Tahoe Forest in Nevada City, California offering the ability to ship anywhere in the world including FPO/APO address'. Plans are already in place to expand the warehouse to better serve all Veterans, active duty Marines and their families. eMarine PX is licensed with the USMC Trademark Office in DC. eMarine PX are proud members of: Vietnam Veterans of America (Life Member) 1st Marine Division Association (Life Member) 3rd Marine Division Association (Life Member) Disabled American Veterans (Life Member) Veterans of Foreign Wars (Life Member) Marine Corps League (Life Member) American Legion Marine Corps Association BPOE
