About TMP & How to Join
Is TMP Right for You?
The mission of Team Marine Parents is to provide the framework for individuals to participate in athletic events nationwide while raising funds and promoting awareness of the organization's outreach programs.
Raising awareness and funds for a grassroots organization starts on a grassroots level; it starts with YOU. If you enjoy running or competing in athletic events, encouraging communities to engage in troop support activities, and raising money for a good cause, then TMP is a great fit for you.
Whether you're the family member of a Marine, running in memory of a Marine, or a fan of supporting Marines, we welcome you to join TMP. Not all of our runners are athletes, but the one thing each has in common is a love for supporting Marines, past, present, and future.
Take a moment to read through some of the testimonials from past participants. You'll find the links in the red bar navigation.

Step One: Choose an Event. Decide which event(s) you would like to compete in. The event(s) can be in your home town or a national event. The event may or may not have a military or Marine Corps theme. If you don't see the event you'd like to compete in on our website, we'll add it for you.
Step Two: Set A Goal You will be representing the organization, MarineParents.com, Inc., an IRS-approved 501(c)(3) public charity eligible to receive tax deductible donations. Decide how much you would like to raise. Participants are encouraged to raise a minimum of $300 per calendar year. If you are purchasing a Marine Corps Marathon bib from us as a charity partner, the minimum for an individual is $500.
Step Three: Register for TMP. Complete the online registration form. We will contact you when we've received your registration, typically the following business day. You may also check the "For TMP Participants" in the red bar navigation for the next steps.
Team Marine Parents, Thank you, thank you for the opportunity to run the 41st MCM. Back home and still floating on my runner's high! Lisa, it was an honor to train with you the last few months. From your inspirational memes, the monthly challenges and just keeping us in check and on track, I really don't know if I would have done it without you. It was an honor to run for Team Marine Parents. Semper Fi and God Bless our Marines!!—Shannon S., 2016 TMP Member.
