Marion Cultural Alliance - Creating Horse Country Fever!

The Alliance is responsible for the placement of life-size signiture horse statues all over Marion County, once again celebrating the creativity and talent of Ocala's own visual artists. In 2012, thirty fancifully painted and embellished life-sized horses were sold at auction and joined the original herd that has been decorating the Ocala landscape since 2001. As was done 10 years ago, MCA shared ½ of the auction proceeds with each buyer's 2nd local charity of choice, ultimately benefitting 17 charitable organizations.

YMCA of Marion County - The Official Training Partner

The YMCA of Marion county has much to offer to all athletes including: The runners in training form, swimming (heated in the winter), cycling class, indoor cardio machines, and resistance training. This also includes trainers who specialize and have experience in endurance training. In fact, YMCA trainers will be available twice a month at the YMCA Ocala (through until the race) to specifically meet with runners interested/involved with training for the Ocala marathon events. This will also involve follow up contact to those who prefer not to meet.
