National Black Marathoners Association Joins Dallas Marathon
The 43rd MetroPCS Dallas Marathon, to be held December 9, will see the addition of the National Black Marathoners Association (NBMA) Southwest Marathon. NBMA members of all athletic abilities plan to participate in each of the Dallas Marathon races. The NBMA serves as a vehicle for black Americans to meet in mass at a single race each year and provides scholarships to deserving high school distance runners.
Dallas Marathon weekend includes a marathon, half marathon, five-person relay race, the Mayor’s Race 5K, Presented by Cigna and Oncor, and the Southwest’s largest two-day health and fitness expo.
“This year’s course, with a start and finish downtown and stretching all the way to White Rock Lake, will give our visiting runners a true taste of Dallas,” says Kevin Snyder, chairman of the Dallas Marathon Board of Trustees. “We are honored to be selected by the members of the National Black Marathoners Association as their regional marathon of choice for 2012 and look forward to their participation in our event.”
