Posted Wednesday, 9 April, 2014
DALLAS – The MetroPCS Dallas Marathon announced its special offer to all registrants of the canceled 2013 MetroPCS Dallas Marathon. Runners registered for the 2013 event will have the opportunity to register for the 2014 MetroPCS Marathon, Half Marathon, 5-Person Relay or SMU Cox Corporate Relay Challenge presented by Behringer at exclusive rates of $65, $50 and $200 per relay team, respectively. This offer is available to 2013 registrants from April 2 to April 30, 2014.
“The cancellation presented an array of challenges for our organization, and we are pleased to be in a position today to make good on the promise of presenting a special offer to our runners,” said Patrick Byerly, president of the Dallas Marathon. “We evaluated all possible options to determine the most fiscally responsible scenario for our runners, organization and our beneficiary, Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children, and are confident our runners will not find a comparable registration offer at any race of similar size in the surrounding region – or nationwide – in 2014.”
In addition to the special registration offer, 2013 registered runners will receive two medals after they complete the MetroPCS Dallas Marathon in 2014: the medal he or she would have received for finishing the 2013 race and their appropriate 2014 finisher medal.
The exclusive registration offer allows 2013 registered runners to select any of the MetroPCS Dallas Marathon’s race categories (marathon, half marathon, relay) in 2014, regardless of the event they selected in 2013. Individuals who select to register as relay team captains in 2014 during the special offer period may select any four individuals to participate on their 5-Person Relay team.
The special offer is available until April 30, 2014, at 11:59 p.m CDT.
“We place the utmost value on our relationship with our runners and the caliber of the experience we deliver to them,” Byerly said. “This offer allows us to honor our commitment to our runners while simultaneously pursuing our mission to give back to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children.”
More information on general registration pricing will be made available in the coming weeks.
