Sean Astin to start and run Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon

Not only will Sean Astin run in the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon in Fredericksburg, VA, on Sunday, May 19, he will serve as the official starter and fire the starter's pistol!

Be there when the town crier calls for the starting musket to fire and run the streets where the nation's first president lived as a boy and the North and South came face to face in battle. 
The Historic Half takes runners on 13.1 mile journey from the retail hub of Central Park through the historic downtown streets, up the now famous hospital hill to awaiting Marines at the Historic Half finish line. Perfectly situated in the timeless city of Fredericksburg halfway between the capital of the Commonwealth in Richmond and the nation's capital, Historic Half Weekend features the Healthy Lifestyle Expo, the Semper Fred 5K and, starting in 2013, the Marine Corps Historic 10K. 
Official press release.
