DALLAS (June 23, 2017) – “I did it for the shirt.” It’s hard to beat the sense of accomplishment that comes from training for and finishing a full or half marathon, and for novice and experienced participants alike there is no more tangible sign of that accomplishment that a signature event shirt. With this in mind, the BMW Dallas Marathon is excited to announce Alanic Active wear as the official apparel sponsor of the 47th BMW Dallas Marathon, Half Marathon and 5-Person Relay.
As a part of the partnership, Alanic Active wear will produce participant shirts for the 2017 BMW Weekend Series 5K and 10K distances, BMW Dallas Marathon, Half Marathon and 5-Person Relay. Participants will have the choice between dual-blend tank top or short sleeve options in a variety of colors. In addition to participant shirts for each registered runner, Alanic will produce the popular long-sleeve dri-fit finisher shirts for each marathon, half marathon and relay distance participant that crosses the downtown Dallas finish line on Sunday, December 10. Alanic will also produce a finisher jacket for all participants who complete the BMW Weekend Series.
New to this year’s event, individuals have the opportunity to take on the BMW Weekend Series by completing the 5K or 10K on Saturday, December 9, and the marathon or half marathon the following day. BMW Weekend Series participants will earn the signature jacket and a bonus medal as well as other race weekend benefits. Read more HERE.
