Those individuals that want to participate with the Marine Corps League but do not otherwise qualify may join as Associate Members. Are you a Marine Corps League Member?

Getting Involved

We currently have 13 chartered Marine Corps League Detachments located throughout the State of Colorado. Our earliest detachments were chartered as early as 1970 and most continue strong today. Several have their own Auxiliary Units, which also gives distaff members of your family a wonderful opportunity to meet new friends and take part in wonderful programs.


As 2015 marks the 40th anniversary of the Marine Corps Marathon, race director Rick Nealis is planning for "bigger" changes. These include a modified lottery system, expansion of the military program, and different location of the party. But not all the details have been solidified. "Bigger could be more entertainment, special people coming in as guest speakers, more bang for your buck for what you get back," Nealis said. "Can we be a little bit bigger? Yes. What does that mean? Does it mean 32,000 [finishers] and we only grow a couple thousand? Am I hoping to get 40,000? I need a couple more months of planning to work those details." Read more
