Schulte Roofing Sponsors 1st Annual BCS Marathon!
Event will be Held December 11, 2011
Schulte Roofing is proud to announce their sponsorship of the first annual BCS Marathon + Half Marathon to take place on Sunday, December 11, 2011. This event is the first full marathon to be hosted in the Bryan/College Station area. The race is completely sold out with 1500 runners scheduled to participate. The course will be USAT&F certified and will be considered a Boston Marathon qualifying race!
All Entries Monies Will Go to Mercy Project and Still Creek Ranch!
With over 30 sponsors, the money they have donated will cover all costs for the event so that all registration monies totaling approximately $50,000 will go toward two charities: Mercy Project of Ghana and Still Creek Ranch of the Brazos Valley, both of which work to help children in need.
Entry Spot Giveaway Concluded!
As part of our sponsorship, Schulte Roofing will host a water aid station to pass out water and Gatorade/Powerade to the runners. We also received 5 entries for the marathon, one of which will be used by a brave employee! The other 4 were given away in a contest posted on our Facebook page which gave those liking our Facebook page a chance to win one of those entries.
We got such a great response – more visitors and ‘likes’ in just a few days than since the inception of our Facebook page! Winners were announced on November 1, so all our spots are filled and everyone is ready for the first annual BCS Marathon!
Come Cheer the Runners On!
Spectators are encouraged to come out and cheer the runners to completion! Nearly 50% of the participants are from outside the Brazos Valley area, so we are anxious to show them what a wonderful area this is for the running community. The course includes a route through Bryan, College Station, and Texas A&M University’s campus and will be lined with aid stations for the runners and even some live music. It should be quite an event, so come on out and watch the first ever annual BCS Marathon + Half Marathon with Schulte Roofing as one of the proud initial sponsors!
