Raleigh, N.C. - As part of its commitment to the local community, hesketh.com is proud to announce the launch of the City of Oaks Marathon web site, effective today. In addition to providing complete information about event requirements and registration, the site provides detailed information about the course itself, training opportunities, and other events that will precede the actual race on November 4, 2007. Robb Hamilton, a hesketh.com employee, is co-marketing director for the event. Various members of the hesketh.com team were responsible for designing the user experience, preparing the information architecture, and developing the site.
This 2007 Raleigh marathon and half marathon event marks the return of the marathon to the City of Oaks after a five year absence. The name honors the abundance of oak trees and natural areas found in North Carolina's capital city. As an event sponsor, hesketh.com encourages you to celebrate the diversity of Raleigh's landscape, from modern city to forest trails and open farmland by participating in or volunteering for this Raleigh marathon and related events.
Heather Hesketh, CEO of hesketh.com, says, "Sponsoring this event allows us not only to support athletes, other marathon participants, and our city, but also to help raise money for two very worthy causes." Beneficiaries of the event are the American Cancer Society and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.
