    MARINE CORPS BASE QUANTICO, Va. – Military officials selected Lt Col. Sean Francis X. Barrett as an All-Marine Athlete for the 2023 Marine Corps Marathon Weekend in Washington, D.C., Oct. 26-30.

    Barrett, 38, is currently stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton, California, with I Marine Expeditionary Force.

    “I’ve had the honor of representing the All-Marine Running Team and participating in Marine Corps Marathon events with the team since 2007,” said Barrett. “Competing against the other Services and against the Royal Navy/Marine Corps makes it a uniquely fun event, and the support of the community, volunteers, and other Marines is always second to none. Watching participants, spanning the spectrum of ability levels, test themselves over 26.2 miles is a motivating experience. The Marine Corps Marathon Office does a superb job, and I always enjoy participating.”

    The 2007 Harvard College alumnus is one of 10 Marines who will make up the 2023 All-Marine Marathon Team.

    “Running for the All-Marine Running Team for the past 19 plus years has enabled me to stay connected to the young Marines and introduce them to the plethora of opportunities that the Marine Corps has to offer,” explained All-Marine Marathon Team Coach Col. Joseph Galvin. “Leading this team and representing the Marine Corps is a way to develop camaraderie with my fellow Marines and the other Armed Service members.”

    Barrett, a 2003-graduate from St. Augustine High School in St. Augustine, Florida, commissioned in the Marine Corps in June, 2007. This will be his seventh full marathon.

    “It is extremely difficult to make the All-Marine Marathon team,” said Semper Fit Sports Operations Officer Capt. Miles Coats, a native of Lacey, Washington. “Prospective athletes must pass a variety of highly competitive application requirements; making the final roster is of the highest honor.”
