MCM Marine Corps Marathon Medal 2011

36th Marine Corps Marathon Medal (2011)

WOW! We’ve come to expect the best out of the Marines so it should be no surprise that the 36th Marine Corps Marathon medal is simply one of the best we’ve seen this year.

It looks like something straight out of an Austin Powers movie.

The MCM was run on October 30, 2011.  The race was won by Army first lieutenant Chad Ware (results).
