Marines are known for their tough character, but one local Marine is using physical and mental strength to go above and beyond for an upcoming road race.

According to WTOP, Captain Jason "Duke" Dequenne, who is based at Quantico, plans to run 236 miles this month. He's doing it to celebrate the Marine Corps 236 birthday. Captain Dequenne also plans to dedicate each mile to a Marine killed in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Duke will start in Philadelphia and plans to finish his mighty feat during the Marine Crops Marathon October 30.
