Registration Opens Soon!
Registration for the 27th Annual Air Force Marathon will open at 9:00 a.m. ET on November 28th, 2023! The best pricing of the year for all race distances will only be available through December 5th so be sure to register early to lock in the early bird pricing.

If you deferred your race registration from a previous year to a future year, you received an email earlier this week with further information on how to register. Please note, you are not automatically registered for the 2023 event. You may use your code toward any 2023 event or product but your code only covers the dollar amount equal to the cost of your original registration.
