When the Hawks Win at Home, Runners Benefit with Registration Discount

ATLANTA -- US Road Sports & Entertainment Group, owners and operators of the Publix Georgia Marathon, has announced an agreement with the NBA’s Atlanta Hawks. The partnership will bring a unique and fun way for those interested in registering for the Publix Georgia Marathon to receive a discount based on the outcome of two Hawks home games during February.

For each Hawks home victory from February 6 through February 8, 2013, registrants will receive a discount equal to the total number of Hawks points in excess of the opposing team’s score. For example, if the Hawks win by 12, runners will receive $12 off registration cost. The discount will be valid between the hours of noon and 11:59 p.m. ET the day following the win and registrants will use the discount code PGMHAWKS13. The promotion is valid for the following home games held at Philips Arena:

• Wednesday, February 6 vs. Memphis Grizzlies
