Planning underway for Albany Marathon

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Planning is underway for this year's Albany Marathon and Mardi Gras Street Festival.

The festivities will be March 7th in downtown Albany.

ADICA board members said it takes about 37-hundred volunteers to make the event a success.

"Two years ago we had 50-thousand people through here. We got runners from all over the world. This is an opportunity from the city of Albany to really show itself off, we encourage people," said Phil Cannon, ADICA Board member.

The Albany Marathon is a qualifier for the Boston Marathon.
