Business professors compete in Chicago Marathon

Nov. 12, 2002

KALAMAZOO -- Two Haworth College of Business faculty members recently finished in the top 10 percent of all runners in the Chicago Marathon.

Timothy Palmer and David Flanagan, both associate professors of management, ran the 26.2-mile course together under their goal of 3 hours and 30 minutes. Palmer's 2,908th-place finish among some 37,500 runners (with a time of 3:21:43) qualifies him for the 107th running of the Boston Marathon next April. Palmer and Flanagan also ran the Chicago course two years ago.
