Esprit De Corps Ultra


WOW! Only 5 more days until the big day! The past 7 months have been filled with stress, craziness, fun and pride. We lost one team member but quickly picked up another (Welcome Aboard GySgt Jimmy Shields). We trained for countless hours and saw very little of our friends and family. It was a real roller coaster ride which all of us expected it to be and wouldn’t have changed it for the world.

With this historical run quickly coming upon us we would like to take the time to say thanks to all of you who have supported us for the past 7 months and those who continue to do so today. Also, for those of you who are interested, our opening ceremony will take place at the New Hall Military Museum in Philadelphia on 22 October from 9 am -10 am. During this time we will have a color guard detail present from the Inspector Instructor Staff Philadelphia, the founder of the IMSFF Karen Guenther, guest speaker Major General Tom Jones, Chaplain Butler’s blessing & prayer, and a USMC 5 band quartet from Quantico, VA who will be playing the National Anthem, Marines Hymn, and bugler playing Taps to honor the fallen.

We hope that you all will be able to make it to the opening ceremony on the 22nd. But if not, we hope to share some of the same road with you out at the Marine Corps Marathon.


Thanks again for all of your outstanding support! We wouldn’t have been nearly as successful without YOU!


Semper Fidelis,

Team Esprit De Corps

Can you provide updates of pace,location anticipated rest areas or any other info.
Would love to find the team and show them support.
If you post their pace and where they stop and start it could be fairly easy to track them with the map of the route on the site.

Go Team EDC !!
