Ladies and Gentlemen, The Woodlands is proud to host a marathon for the first time since 1993. Along with that news, Corporate Incentives would like to toot our own horn and show some of the merchandise that we were able to put together for the event. Not only did they need shirts for volunteers and participants, but they also chose these light-weight bags that can be worn over the shoulder or as a backpack to promote their sponsors and races. Anyone who has been in or cheered on their favorite athlete in a marathon knows there is a TON of swag that gets passed out. Well now there is a convenient bag to put it in.
Some fast facts include:
The Woodlands Marathon has over 6,000 runners becoming the largest, single-day sporting event in South Montgomery County.
