To the Editor,
On behalf of the Colonel Sanders Half Marathon Planning Committee, we would like to acknowledge both the sponsors and participants of the Colonel Sanders Half Marathon and 10K race. On November 12, 2022, 154 runners attended and finished the race. 15% of the runners were from out of the state ranging from Texas, Maryland, Oklahoma, Alabama, Tennessee, Missouri, Minnesota, Ohio, Michigan, Indiana and North Carolina. Several of the runners dressed up in costume and many more had their own personal stories as to why they were running the race. This was a boots-on-the-ground initiative and truly a multi-county, city and community wide effort.
None of this would have been possible without the support of our sponsors, volunteers and participants. The Colonel Sanders Half Marathon and 10K was a great example of teamwork and unity. The Colonel Sanders Half Marathon Planning Committee would like to extend its warmest thanks to ALL of the sponsors, volunteers and participants for your support and involvement! Without the kindness of these donors, community- and tourism-led events would not be possible. Looking forward to seeing you next year!
