Drew Carey to Run Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon

Comedian/Actor Drew Carey, currently the host of The Price is Right and Drew Carey’s Improv-A-Ganza, will run the Marine Corps Historic Half Marathon according to Runner’s World CRO Bart Yasso Facebook update.


The Marine Corps Historic  Half Marathon takes place on May 15th in Fredericksburg, Virginia.

After a health scare Carey become serious about his diet and exercise. He has since lost nearly 100 pounds.  He will look to inspire others to do the same when he runs his first half marathon in May.

Drew tweted via his Twitter (@DrewFromTV) back on March 14th that he was planning to run the Marine Corps Half Marathon.

Random Drew Carey Fact: He was born with six toes on his right foot.
