Arkansas Democrat Gazette Renews Title Sponsorship
With Little Rock Marathon
LITTLE ROCK, AR (July 26, 2013) - The Little Rock Marathon is proud to
announce that the Arkansas Democrat Gazette will return as presenting
sponsor of the 2014 Little Rock Marathon Weekend slated for February 28 -
March 2, 2014.
As presenting sponsor, the Arkansas Democrat Gazette, Arkansas' largest
newspaper, will serve as the official media outlet for the race weekend
information. The newspaper has served as the marathon's presenting sponsor
since the race's inception in 2003. The Little Rock Marathon is pleased to
partner with the Arkansas Democrat Gazette to provide an EPIC (this year's
race theme) event for the 12th Annual Marathon Race Weekend.
"To be the presenting sponsor of the Little Rock Marathon since the
beginning is a real honor for us," said Tabitha Cunningham, Promotions and
Events Director for Arkansas Democrat-Gazette. "Not only does our community
benefit from the economic boast the marathon brings each year, but we also
benefit from being a part of a national recognized marathon that brings in
thousands to our city from all 50 states and many countries. The exposure
that gives our state is incredible. It is also important for us to report
on the Little Rock Marathon each year and to list the finishers in the
newspaper the Monday after the race."
Race Weekend events include the 12th Annual Little Rock Marathon, the
Little Rock Half Marathon, the Little Rock 10K, the Little Rock 5K Fun
Run/Walk, the Little Rockers Kids Marathon and the Little Rock Health &
