BMO Harris Bank in multi-year sponsorship of The Phoenix Marathon

BMO Harris Bank have announced their multi-year commitment as the title sponsor of The BMO Harris Bank Phoenix Marathon.

The March 1st, 2014 marathon is a qualifying event for the Boston Marathon, and is one of the reasons the full marathon is almost sold out five months before the race. Last year's sold out race had registrants from fifteen countries and forty-nine states.

"The Phoenix Marathon is building incredible momentum in a short amount of time and we want to make sure we can help further build on a great community event", said Steve Johnson, BMO Harris Bank Arizona President. "The excitement we hear from the running community further underscores the importance of this premier event and the benefits it brings to so many".

To give back to the community, a portion of the runners' entry fees will support The Phoenix Marathon Foundation, a nonprofit organization committed to empowering student-runners to achieve educational success through a scholarship program.

The Phoenix Marathon Foundation aims to provide scholarship funds for high school students who have participated in running related athletics who are dedicated to the pursuit of higher education. Scholarships will be provided to students through monetary donations presented to the Phoenix Marathon Foundation by individuals, businesses and corporations who share the belief that education is one of the keys to lifelong success.

"Today's tough job market has many more young people interested in higher education. But as college costs continue to rise, many of them are unable to enroll," commented Kim Arnett, Founder of the Phoenix Marathon Foundation. "We are hopeful that through the Phoenix Marathon Foundation, we can provide scholarships to many of these students and are committed to help make their college dreams a reality".

The scenic Usery Mountains are the backdrop for the 26-mile race. Runners and their supporters will enjoy the views as they run down Usery Mountain Park to the Phoenix valley floor. There are race choices available for runners of all levels. In addition to the full marathon, there is a half marathon, 10k and a free 1k fun run for kids. The shorter races will traverse through parts of historic Mesa, finishing at Riverview Shopping Center which includes the new state of the art Mesa city park paseo and Major League Baseball spring training complex.
