Dallas Reclaims Dec. 8 For Marathon
January 26, 2013
DALLAS (WBAP 24/7 News) - Messy confrontation averted.
Organizers from the San Antonio "Rock-n-Roll Marathon" say that race will revert back to its original scheduled date of November 17. Earlier this week, they had moved the date to Dec. 8, which was in direct conflict with the Dallas Marathon.
Dallas Marathon officials reacted with surprise and disgust and hinted at possible legal action.
But late Friday night, San Antonio race organizers announced that the change was a "mistake" and an "oversight" and apologized to Dallas Marathon organizers.
