FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Corrigan Sports Enterprises Partners with Frederick Marathon
Baltimore, MD – Corrigan Sports Enterprises (CSE), a leader in sports event
management and promotion, announced today that it will now become a partner
of the Frederick Marathon. CSE will assist in the operation of the
Frederick Marathon immediately and will continue with the existing plans
for the scheduled races on May 5th and 6th.
"The people at the Frederick Marathon committee have built a strong
foundation and done a great job getting the event off the ground,” said Lee
Corrigan, President of Corrigan Sports Enterprises. “We are here to take
the event to the next level and introduce thousands of runners to a
beautiful part of Maryland. We see Frederick Maryland as an exciting
emerging market in the region. We are confident that great things are
ahead for the Frederick Marathon."
"We are thrilled with the new partnership, and know that together we can
grow the Frederick Marathon into a world-class event,” stated race director
Rachel Ridgway. “It makes total sense to combine the knowledge and
resources of the two organizations that put on the two great road racing
events in Maryland's two largest cities. We are looking forward to a long,
mutually beneficial relationship."
The Frederick Marathon becomes the second race for CSE, as they already
manage the Under Armour Baltimore Running Festival. The Baltimore Running
Festival, which is heading into year seven, will take place on Oct. 13,
2007 and saw a record number of 12,000 participants last year. The Running
Festival is one of the fastest growing races in the country and features
participants from all 50 states and more than 20 countries.
The fifth annual Frederick Marathon weekend will take place May 5-6 and
features five races: marathon, progressive marathon, four-person relay,
half-marathon and a twilight 5K. It also has a Health and Fitness Expo
which will serve as the place for registration and packet pick up. Last
year, the event had nearly 3,000 runners.
