Guam - It's been a month since the Guam International Marathon took place that drew close to 2,900 participants both from Guam and off-island. In fact, this year's event was considered a success as international runners exceeded residential runners with over 1,400 from off-island, a majority of which were from Japan. Race director Ben Ferguson says the event not only was meant to promote sports tourism but an opportunity to give back to the community.

He told KUAM News, "We're here today to make a donation to the Islandwide Beautification Task Force and the Tourism Education Council and with the knowledge that those funds are going to be put to great use and that use will fulfill the mission that we all set out to accomplish when we created the GIM two years ago."

IBTF and the Tourism Education Council each received a check donation of $15,000. Next year's race meanwhile is already set for April 12, 2015.
