    Runners in the Marine Corps Marathon will be at the start line in hours! News4's Darcy Spencer takes one last look at security, road closures and more. (Published Saturday, Oct. 21, 2017)

    Nearly 40 streets in the D.C. area will be closed for the annual Marine Corps Marathon on Sunday, Oct. 22, including roads in Georgetown, Arlington and around the National Mall.

    The Marine Corps Marathon has released a complete list of road closures for race day. Some roads will close as early as 3:30 a.m. on Sunday. All will reopen by 5:30 p.m. The D.C. Metro will open two hours early for the race, and the Blue and Yellow Lines will operate extra trains throughout the day.

    The closest Metrorail station to the start of the race is Pentagon Station on the Blue and Yellow lines. The Pentagon Station will be exit only until 8:30 a.m., so runners should consider using Pentagon City to avoid crowds.

    This list of road closures is published on the Marine Corps Marathon website:
