Four members of the Okefenokee Track & Cycling Club traveled to Washington, D.C. on October 31, 2010, to participate in the 4th largest marathon in the U.S. and 8th in the world. With almost 30,000 runners, the 26.2 mile scenic course began at Arlington Cemetary. The uphill finish landed runners at the site of the Iwo Jima Memorial with a Marine Lieutenant placing a commemorative medal around the neck of each finisher.
Completing the marathon were Cheryl Monroe with a time of 4:11, Mary Woodruff - 4:26, Robin Smith - 4:46, and Clay Culp - 4:46. Mary ran as a fundraiser for the Semper Fi Fund.
