Marathoners get ready to race for the love of Lebanon
Only a week remains before the 2006 Beirut International Marathon (BIM), when over 18,000 runners will take to the streets and run "For the Love of Lebanon," this year's marathon mantra. Signs for the marathon already hang all over Beirut, runners' registration is closed and as the Beirut Marathon Association (BMA) reaches its organizational finish line, Mark Dickinson, the marathon's managing director, sits calmly and speaks proudly about his team's efforts.
Precisely 18,487 people representing 50 nationalities are slated to run - or walk - on November 26, including 500 who have committed to the 42-kilometer marathon.
