Mr Fakhro was presented with an elegantly framed version of the Budget Car Rental sponsored polo shirts, by Messrs Chuck Chandonnet and Stephen Williams, Co-Chairman of the race for 2004.
The 2004 Marathon Relay will be held on the 3rd December 2004 and this year, for the first time, will commence at the Bahrain International Circuit and take a route around Awali before finishing at the Ritz Carlton Hotel, in Seef area.
Budget Car Rental, has joined with this event to support the cause for the last 10 years and has sponsored all of the polo shirts for marshals and timekeepers this year, as well as safety jackets for 300 marshals.
At the presentation Mr Adel Fakhro, said, “We are thrilled once more to be part of this very exciting event, which not only is one of the most consistently successful events in Bahrain, but one which continues to offer support to the Kingdom’s charities.”
The Bahrain Marathon Relay is a very popular annual event now organised by the Bahrain Roundtable which proudly boasts that the race has raised over US$1 million since it was started.
A maximum of 100 teams enter the Marathon Relay and each member of the team has to run a 3km leg of the Marathon and then passes over to the next team member to continue until the 26 miles are completed.
Stephen Williams, thanked Mr Fakhro saying, said, “Budget Car Rental is one of our most generous sponsors who support this event year after year. We very much appreciate its continued support as it is thanks to their generosity that the event has been so consistently successful.”
In the past the funds created by the event have bought a mini bus for a rehabilitation centre in Isa Town, playground equipment for three day centres, which assist children with autism. This is the 24th Bahrain Marathon Relay and it is being organised by the Bahrain Roundtable.
Bahrain Roundtable, which is part of the global Roundtable Organisation is one of the most established business organisations in Bahrain, having been here for 27 years and is currently chaired by Graham Bennett.
