Amateur Radio volunteers in the Greater Washington, DC, region are invited to support the 41st running of the US Marine Corps Marathon. The annual event takes place on Sunday, October 30. Volunteers will support communication for the Marathon, which covers a scenic route starting near Arlington National Cemetery, into Washington, DC, and past many monuments — hence the nickname “Marathon of the Monuments” — and back into Virginia, concluding after 26.2 miles at the Marine Corps War Memorial in Arlington.
Amateur Radio volunteers provide emergency medical and logistical communication support throughout the course, working in concert with various law enforcement agencies as well as with local fire and emergency medical services to aid the more than 25,000 participants.
“Additional ham radio operators are still needed to staff some points along the course, including mile markers, water points, food stops, and aid stations, as well as some post-finish locations,” said Marathon Amateur Radio Communications Director Howard Cunningham, WD5DBC.
