The second annual Army Marathon had 30 percent more runners than the inaugural event, Ed Bandas told members of the Central Texas chapter of the Military Officers Association of America on Friday.

The number of runners increased from 900 to 1,200, despite the freezing temperatures for the March 2 race.

“Shared misery is a badge of honor,” he said, jokingly.

Participants are still talking about the rain and cold on social media sites, Bandas said.

Bandas, the race director, said they’ve decided to keep the race on the first Sunday of March next year. He said he hopes to increase sponsorship so all race entry fees can go straight to military charities supported by the event.
