Here’s the story:

The Nature Conservancy’s Team Nature is joining the Marine Corps Marathon on October 28, 2012. We want to make “the people’s marathon,” as the Marine Corps event is often known, a marathon for people and nature. Our running team is raising funds to help protect and restore our planet and natural treasures like the Chesapeake Bay.

The 26.2-mile MCM course passes by some of our most treasured national monuments and is within easy driving distance of the Bay, Virginia Coast Reserve and Central Appalachians -- all important natural habitats the Conservancy has helped protect.

Support our runners:

Registration has closed for the 2012 marathon but you can support our runners as they raise money for Nature Conservancy’s projects here in the mid-Atlantic and around the world. A special thank you to our active and reserve military running with Team Nature. 

Your donations can help us:

  • Restore thousands of baby oysters to reefs in the Chesapeake Bay, providing habitat for rockfish and crabs.
  • Buy longleaf pine seedlings to help restore one of America’s most diverse and endangered forest systems.
  • Conduct prescribed burns at Warm Springs Mountain Preserve to help restore pine-oak forests and reduce the threat of uncontrolled fires.

And when you help us reach our collective MCM goal of $30,000, your efforts will help protect even more lands and waters for the benefit of people and nature.

To our registered runners:

All race day information including bib pick up information will be handled by the Marine Corp Marathon staff – you should have received emails from them by now.  Don’t forget to tell your friends and family that you’re running with Team Nature on social media and include a link to this page. For twitter consider including #TeamNature @nature_DCMDVA and @Marine_Marathon. For Facebook be sure to like us:  www.facebook.com/dc.md.va.nature.conservancy.

No Federal or Marine Corps endorsement of advertisers or sponsors is implied.
