The Dallas Marathon board of directors announced a multi-year title sponsorship with BMW of North America earlier this month. For avid runners planning on racing in the full marathon or one of the “easier” events, there’s plenty of time to start training before ready, set, go on Dec. 11.
The BMW Dallas Marathon is Texas’ oldest marathon and the largest annual sporting event in North Texas. Since 1997, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children has been the race’s primary beneficiary.
So far I’ve failed to convince any of my staff to run, but if your company is more game, check out the Behringer Corporate 5-Person Relay. Each staff member will run between 4.25-6.25 miles in their leg. The time limit for completing the total 26.2 miles is 6.5 hours. Do it for the children.
