Music City Marathon and Team PHG

Earlier this year, three of Preferred Health Group‘s management team competed in the 11th annual Music City Marathon. There were over 30,000 runners participating on April 24th making it the 2nd largest half marathon/marathon in the world. Bari Horton competed in the half marathon and Kirby Horton and Mike Blocher competed in the full marathon.

Due to severe weather on race day, a large number of runners were subject to a route diversion which shortened the race. This was very disappointing to all those affected. In spite of this, Bari was able to finish the 13.1 mile half marathon in 2 hours and 15 minutes to place 171st in her age group. Kirby and Mike were both diverted short of the full marathon. Mike finished 22.2 miles and was 33rd in his age group marathon in 3 hours and 26 minutes. Kirby finished 19th in his age group for 20.4 miles in 3 hours and 29 minutes. Congratulations Team PHG and we are looking forward to 2011!
