The Marine Corps Marathon will host a press briefing on October 26 featuring actor and U.S. Marine Rob Riggle as well as officials and special participants in the race.
Riggle became an actor after serving with the Marines and remains a member of the reserves. He is known for his work on the Daily Show, Saturday Night Live, and the movie the Hangover.
The media-only event will be hosted two days before the October 28 race at 12:30 p.m. at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. MCM organizers explained what to expect in a press release:
“During the briefing, MCM organizers will address the U.S. Marine coordination of the event held in Arlington, VA and the nation's capital with 40,000 registered participants in the MCM and MCM10K. In addition, the MCM staff will highlight the event's record sell out, which is expected to result in the largest turnout of runners to date.”
The National Press Club is located at 529 14th Street NW Washington D.C. The press brief will be held on the 13th floor.
