On Monday, April 18, Elizabeth Model, Executive Director of the Downtown Surrey BIA and President of the Surrey Marathon Society, made a presentation to Surrey Council outlining the benefits of an international marathon and requesting sponsorship for the Surrey International World Music Marathon planned for 2012. While City Staff prepare a Corporate Report expected to go to Council in May for further discussion and approval, Councillor Barinder Rasode is already trying to recruit the Mayor and fellow Councillors to participate in the Half-Marathon.
In the meantime, the Society is busy organizing the First Annual Surrey International World Music Marathon presented by Central City scheduled for September 30, 2012. Two of the directors, Kevin Ridley from Run Inn and Michelle Mackay from Central City, are seen here promoting the event at the Vancouver Marathon sign-in Trade Show.
