Delta Air Lines: Runway to the World

Delta is proud to be a major sponsor and the official airline of Grandma’s Marathon, the Garry Bjorklund Half Marathon and the William A. Irvin 5K!

Delta staffed a waterstop along the racecourse for the second year in a row and is excited and was proud to be able to support their many employees who participated in this year’s races. The first American male and female finishers of Grandma’s Marathon each won a pair of Delta tickets and with Delta’s Runway to the World contest, 100 randomly selected runners won a pair of Delta tickets!
