SAN ANTONIO (September 16, 2014) – Competitor Group, Inc. (CGI), organizers of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, today announced SWBC as the Official Financial Partner of the 7th annual Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon & 1/2 Marathon on December 5-7, 2014.
As a partner of the race, SWBC is launching an “Executive Challenge,” where executives from companies across south Texas, will compete against each other in a special wave of the race. Participants in this group will begin the race together in the same start line corral and winners will be determined by the fastest finish times. The top three winners of the Executive Challenge will be recognized on stage at the awards ceremony on race day and also receive a prize package.
“We are known for supporting the local San Antonio community and beyond with sound financial products and services, but as a company, we’re also focused on inspiring people to live healthy lifestyles—from our own employees and customers to the larger city as a whole,” said Charlie Amato, SWBC Chairman and co-founder. “We look forward to partnering with one of San Antonio’s biggest fitness events to help further encourage the local community to stay active while having fun.”
Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio will take place in December for the first time in the event’s seven-year history. Event weekend includes two days of running as part of its new Rock ‘n’ Roll Running Festival, including a marathon, half-marathon, 2-person half-marathon relay, 5k and Bike Tour on Sunday, as well as the SUBWAY KiDS ROCK mile race and new 10k on Saturday. All events feature live music and enthusiastic cheerleaders lining the race routes to create the ultimate fitness-centric, block party environment.
“We are pleased to welcome SWBC as a partner of the Humana Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon & 1/2 Marathon,” said Bill Pedigo, Chief Revenue Officer of Competitor Group, organizers of the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series. “We hope SWBC’s Executive Challenge not only draws many corporate leaders to participate in the race, but also encourages entire companies to train and race together as a way to stay active and healthy.”
