CORPUS CHRISTI, TX, May 08, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The law firm of Herrman & Herrman is proud to be a presenting sponsor of the 43rd annual Beach to Bay Relay Marathon scheduled for May 19. It is one of Corpus Christi's signature, festive public events.
The relay marathon is held each year on Armed Forces Day, the third Saturday in May, to salute the men and women serving in all branches of the U.S. military. Herrman & Herrman is proud to honor our military members while helping raise money to support many worthwhile local charitable organizations.
Founded in 1976 by Captain John Butterfield, Beach to Bay has grown into the one of the largest relay marathons in the United States. The annual event attracts an international field with more than 2,000 teams of amateur and professional runners who travel to Corpus Christi each May.
Herrman & Herrman understands the importance of giving back to the community and is a long-time supporter of Beach to Bay. All proceeds from the event go to support local charities. The law firm is sponsoring teams taking part in the 2018 edition of the marathon. The attorneys and staff of Herrman & Herrman will be entering participants and visitors into a raffle for a chance to win great prizes.
The 26.2-mile marathon course begins on the beach of North Padre Island, crosses Laguna Madre on the JFK Causeway, winds through Naval Air Station Corpus Christi and finishes at McCaughan Park along Shoreline Boulevard.
The relay marathon is divided into six legs of approximately 4.4 miles. Each relay team has six members, and each participant runs one leg of the marathon, then hands a baton to a team member at the designated exchange points.
A new category at Beach to Bay in 2018 is the two-runner relay team in which each runner runs three legs of the relay.
In addition, experienced marathoners who wish to run a full marathon will be allowed to run all six legs solo.
There are numerous race divisions from professional to amateur with various age groups.
The relay teams have the option to honor a specific person who serves or served in the Armed Forces in a program called "Run for a Hero."
