Marine Corps Marathon participants, spectators will face limited Metro options on race day

- It may be more difficult for spectators and participants to get to this year's Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. due to Metro's SafeTrack program.

As a part of the transit system's maintenance plan, trains are not currently running early for special events on weekends.

On October 30th, the day of the marathon, Metrorail trains will not begin service until 7 a.m. and the race usually begins around 7:45 a.m.

In the past, Metrorail trains had run as early as 5:30 a.m. Metro did say that this year they will run more eight car trains and run them more often.
