… to host a marathon.
We hear all about the runners. They MUST qualify by completing one of many different marathons within a certain time, based on the runner’s age. They come from the US and from other countries. They run for themselves, for others, for charities. They wear all kinds of technical running gear or dress as Minnie Mouse or Elvis. The runners are THE reason for the marathon.
BUT without the thousands of volunteers, the 25,000 runners would be nowhere. In honor of the volunteers, here are some photos from before the marathon started.
