Marcus Craig and Michael Craig are a team of Military Brothers on The Amazing Race 34.

Despite displaying an air of overconfidence and an obsession with coming in first, the military brothers emerged as the frontrunners early on, regularly placing near the top of the pack due to their navigation skills, physicality, and efficiency in tasks, allowing them to make it to the final five. In the Megaleg in Spain, however, Marcus struggled with the first Roadblock, dropping them to last. The brothers were never able to catch up, resulting in Marcus & Michael's elimination in 5th place.
