The 36th Annual Marine Corps Marathon will be taking place on Sunday morning, as a wonderful Washington D.C. tradition continues. The 26.2-mile journey will take place on Sunday morning at 8 a.m., with Comcast SportsNet providing 90 minutes of preview coverage beginning at 7 a.m., followed by live coverage throughout the morning.

Over 30,000 runners from 54 countries are registered to participate in this year's event, including 400 who are servicemen and women stationed overseas. Last year, Air Force Lieutenant Jacob Bradosky won the event, which was marred by security concerns dating back to recent shootings around the area. Kenyan native Janet Cherobon was the first woman to cross the finish line.

The race will be preceded by a full schedule of events, including a kids fun run, a runners press conference, a 10k run and the main event. It will end with a special festival in Rosslyn, Virginia.
