On Friday, June 15th, the Louisiana Marathon committee hosted a special announcement party with the Advocate. The invited only event was hosted at the Hilton Capitol Center in Downtown Baton Rouge. The Hilton will also be the host hotel for the upcoming race on January 20th, 2013.
As all attending made it into the main room, representatives from the Lt. Governor’s office, Mayor’s Office, and the Visitor’s Bureau shared a few words about the growth of the race and how it’s benefitted Louisiana tremendously. All would come to an agreement that runners from 46 states and approx. 3,000 in attendance in the first year is certainly promising.
The big announcement of the evening would be that the Advocate would become one of the major sponsors for a portion of the Louisiana Marathon events this year including the Cypress 5k and the Kids Marathon. They will also produce kids activity books that will be distributed to different public schools and a race magazine guide.
