Chicago-based Endurance Marketing has been selected as the event organizer and race manager for the inaugural All American Marathon and Mike to Mike Half Marathon, beginning in Fayetteville and ending on Fort Bragg May 4, 2014.

“The entire Endurance Marketing Inc. team is looking forward to the opportunity to partner with Fort Bragg and the City of Fayetteville,” said Beth Salinger, Endurance Marketing’s chief event officer. “We are honored to bring runners and walkers, civilians and military personnel together for what is bound to become the must-do event in the region.”

Endurance Marketing’s experienced race direction team has managed marathon events in Cleveland and Columbus, Ohio; Kansas City, Mo.; Chicago; and regional races across the country.

Fort Bragg’s Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation has updated the event website with race-day information and course maps. Event registration is set to open in coming weeks.

“We’re getting the ball rolling and we are very excited to announce this major step in executing the All-American Marathon. Endurance Marketing has a strong record of managing big races,” said Rachel Quesada, Fort Bragg’s marathon lead.

The All American Marathon and Mike to Mike Half Marathon will take place May 4, 2014, with both races starting at Festival Park in Fayetteville, running along city streets and the All American Freeway, before entering Fort Bragg. Both races will conclude at the Fort Bragg’s historic Main Post Parade Field.
