Marine Corps Marathon, Washington. DC

One of the signature events in which the AFF participates annually, the justly called “People’s Marathon” is the most enjoyable of all marathons! Save the date for 2017!


A primary focus of AFF is to reinvigorate the spirit of comradeship and teamwork that so many wounded, ill and injured (WII) serving and veterans miss when forced to return to a desk job or civilian life. This is achieved through enabling participation in different challenges, both in the US and UK, including the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C..

They have served in combat in the same conflicts, and now they run to raise awareness and funds for the common wounded. All funds raised for the AFF will go towards supporting family members and care givers in special activities, events and training that enable recovery and the ability to share with fellow warriors who have been through similar trials.The AFF has facilitated the participation of joint fit and wounded teams from the US, UK and Allied nations, such as Denmark, Georgia and Australia in The Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, D.C. since 2010. The AFF will once again field around 100 runners in signature groupings of both wounded & fit veterans competing under the auspices of the AFF.
