Hotel Discount:
We are currently exploring a partnership with a hotel in the proximity of the race start & finish line, for an exclusive Marathon Globetrotters accomodations discount. There are hotel discounts available through the race website, but we are still trying to negotiate for a hotel who will supply a meeting room. We kindly ask that alternate hotel reservations not be made if you plan to stay together in the same hotel with fellow members. This site will be updated as details become finalized.
