The Mad Marathon and Mad Half have launched a Mad Corporate Team Challenge to benefit charities in the Mad River Valley.
Dori Ingalls, race director for the Mad Marathon, said that all three-member corporate teams registering in the relay division of the 2012 marathon will be entered into the challenge. Plus, $25 of each registration fee will be split among three local nonprofit charities that are registered with the Mad Marathon and CrowdRise, including the Community Fund, Recovery Irene, and Hannah’s House. The Relay Team with the best overall time will not only receive medals, but also a “one of a kind” pottery piece courtesy of Luke Iannuzzi, The Naked Potter, located in Waitsfield.
For those not running the race, donations can be made on line at the CrowdRise site here.
The Mad Marathon, Mad Half and three-team relay division is set for July 8, 2012. Along with the Corporate Challenge, race organizers have added a Mad Half Walker category.
