Kroger-EventOn Saturday, April 3rd, the Irving 2015 Marathon took place with over 2500 runners participating. Kroger was a Silver Sponsor this year and donated water, apples, oranges, and bananas during and after the races. The Marathon took place at the Irving Convention Center, and consisted of a full Marathon, Half Marathon, 10k, 5k, and a 1 Mile Fun Run.  The Kroger Booth was bustling as usual, and the fruit and water were a big hit with the runners. The Irving Marathon was the 237th largest marathon in the US last year, and 7.1 % of finishers qualified for the Boston Marathon.
