It’s a little known fact, but Bauer’s travels with its valued clients to manage event transportation Nationwide. Last week we managed the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon in San Antonio Texas. There were over 27,000 people competing for statewide bragging rights at the third “Texas Showdown” benefiting the Susan G. Komen for the Cure. City Manager of San Antonio Sheryl Sculley released a press statement that proudly declared, “The third running of the Rock ‘n’ Roll San Antonio Marathon & 1/2 Marathon represents a commitment to helping citizens and visitors focus on the importance of fitness and a healthy, active lifestyle.”
There were participants from all 50 states and 18 countries in this the largest combined marathon in Texas. The two marathons were a gut-wrenching 13.1 and 26.2 mile journey that both started just 2 miles northeast of Downtown San Antonio near Lion’s Field (in Brackenridge Park) and finish just steps from the Alamodome. Both courses showcased the best of what San Antonio has to offer: the breath-taking Spanish Missions, historic downtown San Antonio, the King William District and the lush Mission Trails.
This was an action-packed scenic race, lined with supportive spectators, thousands of cheerleaders and high-energy live local music at every mile. Bauer’s Intelligent Transportation gets a thrill out of being involved with these kinds of events.
