5AM Opening Sunday for Marine Corps Marathon

Metrorail will open two hours early, at 5 a.m., on Sunday, October 25, for customers traveling to the Marine Corps Marathon. The closest Metro stop to the start of the race is Pentagon on the Blue and Yellow lines. Riders may want to consider using Pentagon City as an alternate station due to potential crowding at Pentagon.”

  • +1 on using Pentagon City for the marathon. Finally tried it this year for the Army Ten Miler and it was vastly more pleasant coming and going. Props to the PC mall, too, for opening their food court area and bathrooms early.
