The RM Running Association aims to support Royal Marines athletes financially and professionally in athletics, road, trail and cross country running. Running doesn’t mean just running, the association also welcomes jumpers and throwers too. We cater for runners of all standards from absolute beginners to Great Britain internationals. As well as hosting our own inter-unit championships in track and field, and cross country running. We also compete as a Royal Marines team against the Royal Navy regional commands in both disciplines and enjoy a strong winning tradition therein. Royal Marines athletes frequently form the bulk of Royal Navy running teams competing at Inter Services level and above. We also regularly race on the civilian road and trail running running circuit and regularly achieve outstanding results against some of the very finest athletes in the country. Recent highlights include but are not limited to; Team relay winners and runners up for the second consectutive year at the Man V Horse trail race; team winners at the Taunton Half Marathon; top 100 finishes for individuals at the Virgin Money London Marathon; and top 20 finishes for RM athletes representing the Royal Navy internationally at the Marine Corps Marathon, Washington DC.
