CARMEL, Calif. - (April 13, 2005) - The May edition of Readers' Digest

marathon is described as offering something "a little extra." The article
describes the descent from Hurricane Point and the greeting of a
"Tuxedo-clad pianist seated at a Yamaha grand to help runners retool for
the rest of the run."
"We are delighted and honored by this distinction and hope that many other
Americans will come to the Peninsula to experience this and other moments
both in April with the marathon as well as in November with the
half-marathon," remarked Wally Kaster, Race Director.
