Marine Corps Marathon Application Deadline Nears
For those who desire to participate in the Marine Corps Marathon and have not yet sent in their applications, the marathon is limiting the size of its field to 16,000 entrants and has established Sept. 18, 1997, as the last possible day for runners to apply for this year's race. The race will take place on Oct. 26.
