Team Running Strong consists of two teams. Team Running Strong Marine Corps Marathon and Team Running Strong USA. Both are great teams to be a part of and support all of Running Strong's programs.
TEAM RUNNING STRONG HISTORY
In 2004, the Marine Corps Marathon™ chose our National Spokesperson, Olympic Gold Medalist Billy Mills (Oglala Lakota), as the official starter and Team Running Strong was born.
Orphaned at the age of 12, struggling against poverty and prejudice, he became the only American to ever win the 10,000m Olympic Gold Medal.
He also served as a captain in the Marine Corps.
Team Running Strong consists of two teams: Team Running Strong Marine Corps Marathon and Team Running Strong USA. Both are great teams to be a part of and support all of Running Strong's programs.
Team Running Strong Marine Corps Marathon
Team Running Strong in the Marine Corps Marathon™ is Running Strong’s officially organized charity team.
By participating, Team members can take advantage of a host of activities that are organized by Running Strong staff during race weekend.
Registration for Team Running Strong's 2015 MCM team is now closed! Registration for the 2016 MCM team will open in spring 2016. learn more here.
Team Running Strong USA
Team Running Strong USA gives you the chance to support Running Strong's cause by participating in runs across the country. We understand that not everyone can join us in October for the Marine Corps Marathon, Team Running Strong USA is a great alternative.
Because we have limited resources, we cannot organize race weekend events for all of our Team Running Strong USA members, but we can give you access to many great Team Running Strong perks.
Plus, you get to share in the amazing camaraderie that comes from going the distance for American Indian children in need! Click HERE to learn more.
