It was another great year for the Murfreesboro Half Marathon, fondly known in the community as “The Middle Half.” Our team of Lee Company volunteers handed out Gatorade and water at the last water station on the course, cheering on participants for the final stretch of the race. We also had another group of volunteers stationed at the finish line handing out co-branded race wraps (buffs) to the over 2,000 finishers! There was a great buzz of energy in the air, and we were excited to cheer for the participants.
We love working with all the wonderful race coordinators, including Deborah Roberts who coordinates the many water stations on the course.
“Lee Company has done a fantastic job over the past 4 years of providing the volunteers needed to sponsor one of our vital water stations. I could not have done my job without their leadership and I look forward to working with them in the years to come!” commented Deborah.
Four years of sponsoring this race and we look forward to supporting it and continuing to work with Race Director, Melissa Miller, for years to come.
“Lee Company’s sponsorship of the Murfreesboro Half Marathon has made a big contribution to the support for our runners over the years,” said Miller. “The addition of the custom Lee Company-sponsored race wraps (buffs) were a huge success with the participants this year. Lee Company’s support for the race, as well as their focus on supporting and improving our local community, is very much appreciated.”
Supporting the communities we serve is at the heart of what we do. Watch for us in 2019 at the Murfreesboro Half Marathon, we’ll be there cheering everyone on!
