The 2014 Kalamazoo Marathon has teamed up with the Kalamazoo/Battle Creek International Airport and New Balance to create the ’50 State Challenge’ with a goal of getting a runner from each state to participate in this year’s Kalamazoo Marathon.
All 50 states will be represented in the marathon, as will the District of Columbia.
Out-of-state runners were incentivized to be the first from their state to run the 2014 Kalamazoo Marathon as the first runner to represent each state was given free marathon registration, a pair of New Balance shoes, a meal ticket and access to a VIP tent on race day.
Check out a full list of the ’50-Staters’ along with profiles HERE.
