The traditional 42nd US Marine Corps Marathon took place near the US Congress in Washington. The Ukrainian team, which consisted of the wounded Donbas conflict veterans, participated in it for the second time since 1991.

Ten people on behalf of Ukraine took part in the event. Six of them represented Ukraine at the 10-kilometres race; another four won awards in the 42-kilometers race. One soldier won the medal in the hand driven bicycle event.

The Marathon has been held annually for over 40 years, involving athletes from 50 countries across the globe.
