The 18th annual United States Air Force Marathon will be held Sept. 20, 2014, at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base in Dayton, Ohio.

Air Mobility Command will again sponsor an active duty team comprised of both male and female runners representing various age groups to compete in the full and half marathon.

Interested teams should submit an Air Force Form 303 through myPers or with their local fitness center by May 15. Those selected will be placed on permissive TDY status as authorized by AFI 36-3003, Military Leave Program. Individual travel, registration fee and lodging will be reimbursed.

In addition to the official AMC competitive team, all others interested in competing in the Air Force Marathon are encouraged to do so at their own expense.
