11,000 run in Indianapolis Monumental Marathon
Fleet-footed Kentucky-based runners crowned winners of long-distance contest
And it takes a monumental effort to organize an event like IMM. Overseeing that task was The Tuxedo Brothers, a local sporting events management company, operated by brothers Don and Phil Carr.
The IMM’s urban courses are sanctioned and certified by the standards of USA Track and Field, the national body of road racing. The marathon course also serves as a qualifier for the 2013 Boston Marathon.
Proceeds from this year’s race, like previously years, will support local public education with the Indianapolis Public Schools Education Foundation as the largest beneficiary. More than $280,000 has been donated since the race’s founding in 2008.
