Since the government was able to work something out last night, the Marine Corps Marathon is officially on. The government reopened immediately and all races being run on federal land are good to proceed. Very good news for the tens of thousands of Marine Corps Marathon entrants! Now you can all get back to tapering for one of the biggest marathons in America!
To check out the statement from the Marine Corps Marathon director, check the video here (kind of corny, but they are of course allowed some excitement!) 🙂
