By Community | March 19, 2013
Edward Hospital has signed a three-year agreement to be the title sponsor of the Naperville Marathon and Half-Marathon.
The inaugural races will be held on Sunday, November 10, 2013, starting and finishing at North Central College near downtown Naperville.
“With its reputation as a premier provider of healthcare services and a leader in fitness, wellness and prevention, Edward Hospital is a perfect fit as our title sponsor,” says Bob Hackett, Co-Race Director, Edward Hospital Naperville Marathon and Half Marathon.
“We’re proud and excited to be a partner to bring this exciting event to Naperville,” says Pam Davis, President & CEO, Edward Hospital & Health Services. “We look forward to helping build this into one of the most prestigious long distance running events in the country.”
This year’s Edward Hospital Naperville Marathon and Half Marathon will accommodate 3,500 runners – about 3,000 of those spots were sold out in just 14 hours during online registration in January, with about an even split among those who signed up for the Marathon and Half Marathon.
