  Albany --  The Snickers Marathon that was held in Albany during the first weekend in March, brought in about three quarters of a million dollars.  

More than one thousand people took part in the full or half marathon, fun run and bike race. Sara Underdown, with the Convention and Visitors Bureau says during the weekend,  half a million to three quarters of a million dollars were spent in Dougherty County.  

"The spirit and energy and the love of the community was no more evident than it was the day of the marathon and the bike race," Underdown said.  

Organizers were originally hoping for at least 100 participants. They believe next year, they will have several thousand people participate in the marathon.
