What better way to celebrate the RUN FOR AUTISM’s 20th birthday than by joining the RUN team at the Marine Corps Marathon?

The marathon is annually ranked “Best Marathon in the Mid-Atlantic,” “Best for Families,” and “Best for Beginners.” All runners will receive a 20th anniversary OAR finisher medal to celebrate our long partnership with the Marine Corps Marathon (MCM).

On race weekend, the Hyatt Centric Arlington will be the go-to place for all RUN FOR AUTISM team members, family, and friends. Team members and their families can conveniently reserve rooms for race weekend as part of OAR’s room block, providing a home base for their stay. On Saturday, the Hyatt will host OAR’s pre-race team reception and serve as the site of pre- and post-race hospitality on race day.

The Hyatt’s proximity to the start/finish line will allow runners to enjoy the MCM-sponsored post-race party to its fullest while also having access to an indoor RUN FOR AUTISM celebration with food, drinks, and our favorite race-day perk, flushing toilets.

Sign up today to secure your entry! OAR has entries available for the marathon, MCM 10K, and MCM 50K.
