The Dallas Marathon and Behringer Declare Wednesday, October 14, Suits and Sneakers Day
DALLAS (October 8, 2014) – The Dallas Marathon, in partnership with title relay sponsor Behringer, today announced a prerace fitness awareness initiative for professionals in North Texas. The first Suits and Sneakers Day will be Wednesday, October 14, when Behringer and the Marathon encourage professionals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area to substitute running shoes for work shoes.
On that day, participants can share images of their “business active” attire on social media using #suitsandsneakers to be entered to win a free spot in this year’s Corporate Relay Challenge and invitations to the prerace VIP breakfast on Sunday, December 13.
As an added incentive, Luke’s Locker will be offering a 10% discount on all items that day.
“Dallas has one of the strongest business communities in the country,” said Patrick Byerly, president of the Dallas Marathon. “Suits and Sneakers Day is a fun way for runners to share their passion with their coworkers and encourage preparation for, and participation in, race weekend.”
“Dozens of studies have shown that physical fitness is good for a company’s bottom line,” said Jason Mattox, chief operating officer at Behringer. “The Corporate Relay Challenge is a great way to encourage fitness in the workplace and build unity among team members, while also giving back to a great cause.”
Behringer Relay – Participants in both the five-person and corporate relay will follow the same 26.2-mile course as Dallas Marathon participants. Members of the five-person relay teams complete 4.4 to 6.5 miles each, depending on their assigned leg of the relay.
As a result of its 10-year partnership with the Dallas Marathon, the Addison-based firm has helped contribute hundreds of thousands of dollars to directly benefit Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children (TSRHC), the Dallas Marathon’s primary beneficiary. As a leading pediatric orthopedic center, TSRHC has treated more than 210,000 children since its inception, with more than 40,000 clinic visits each year.
