This year’s Eisenhower Marathon, April 29, is celebrating their 20th anniversary. Steve Cathey, organizer of the Eisenhower Marathon, said several runners will be returning in celebration and several local businesses are stepping up in celebration of the race and what it brings to Abilene too.

“There’s a lot of competition for races these days versus when it started. To get 400 racers in a small town like Abilene, it’s a huge number because of all the possibilities (with other races),” Cathey said.
