Miss out on MCM registration? You can still sign up...

Want to run the 37th Marine Corps Marathon but unable to secure your bib in the ridiculously fast 2 hour and 41 minute sellout that occurred on registration day? Well you're in luck...

You still have two options to run in this year's race: sign up for the MCM Transfer Program or register as a MCM Charity Partner.

On Wednesday, June 20 unregistered runners will be able to sign up for the MCM Transfer Program, which will allow registered runners to transfer their 2012 MCM bibs to those on the list.

Registered participants will be able to transfer their entries to unregistered runners anytime between June 20 and August 31. After completing a transfer form, the registered participant will receive a unique code, link and password via email to send to the runner of their choice. Runners then registered through the MCM Transfer Program must pay a 30 transfer fee before September 7.

Want to connect with someone looking to transfer? Visit the MCM Facebook page or MCM Message Board.

Registered runners for the 2012 MCM will also be able to transfer from the full marathon to the MCM10K at no cost. Interested runners can do so now but must complete the process by September 7.

Want to run for a cause? Check out the MCM's Charity Partners and their MCM programs at www.marinemarathon.com. Many of them have entries available for those who want to help support their very worthy causes.

Redskins' offseason program ramps up with start of OTAs today

Redskins' offseason program ramps up with start of OTAs today

The Redskins’ offseason starts to move into high gear today as organized team activities, better known as OTAs, get underway at Redskins Park.

Players have been participating in workouts at Redskins Park since April 17. The first phase of those session consisted of strength and conditioning. In the second phase, they were permitted to run plays but not with the offense lined up against the defense. Finally, in OTAs, they will go offense vs. defense.

The practices, however, will not resemble an August scrimmage in Richmond. The players wear helmets but no pads and contact is not permitted. While players do block other players and there are collisions between players going after passes, the action is more like pushing and shoving that it is hitting.  

The part about no contact should be taken seriously. Seattle ran afoul of the no-contact rule last year and it cost them. The Seahawks were fined $400,000, lost their fifth-round pick in this year’s draft and they will not be permitted to hold their first week of OTAs this year. The Redskins will be very careful to keep within the rules.

OTAs will be held on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday in each of the next three weeks. The sessions will be open to the media on Wednesday of each week. While player attendance is strongly encouraged the practices are voluntary.

The week after OTAs end the team will hold its minicamp on June 13-14. Minicamp is essentially a continuation of OTAs but player attendance is mandatory.
