A retired commander in the US Navy, Captain David Schnell now coordinates office operations and connectivity for Americas Commercial and State Transportation Group. Captain David Schnell enjoys running in his downtime, and he completed the Carlsbad Marathon in 2012.
Established in 1990, the Carlsbad Marathon and Half features a course that at times hugs the California coastline. In 2017, the race was held on January 15. Runners had access to water and support while enjoying live entertainment at every mile marker. Upon completion of the race, runners received a finisher’s medal, Mylar blanket, and refreshments. They also received a pullover and long-sleeve shirt.
Around 8,500 runners from approximately 15 countries participated. The event raised around $200,000 for 15 charities, many of which have ties to the community. Christopher Zablocki won for the men, while Jill Deering won for the women. The 2018 marathon is scheduled for January 14.
