Marine Corps Marathon May Be Canceled Because of Shutdown

Marine Corps Marathon May Be Canceled Because of Shutdown

The Marine Corps Marathon may be canceled because of the government shutdown even though marathon staff is paid with non-appropriated funds.

"Since the government shutdown occurred, the Marine Corps Marathon continues its coordination with hopes of a conclusion in time to host the event without impact. Without a resolution to the government shutdown this week, the MCM as planned is in jeopardy of being cancelled," a statement on the race's Facebook page said. "While still considering and exploring all possible options, the MCM has targeted this Saturday, October 19 as the date to officially notify runners of the status of the event. It is sincerely the hope of everyone associated with the organization of this event that MCM participants can run as planned."

The race is scheduled for Sunday, October 27--and a decision will be made by Friday, October 18.

Wild Thing's comment..............

None of this Obama shutdown is about money, it is all spite and meanness and being a jerk by Obama.
He is so over the top power hungry he just wants to do mean things.

The Obamabots have already demonstrated their warped priorities. They spend money that they aren't supposed to have to block citizen access to attractions that were not relying on Federal funds to operate. Sick,sick,sick...;
