Andrews International Runs in La Prensa International Marathon

Andrews International (AI) isn’t just keeping pace with the competition in the security industry; now, they’re keeping pace with international runners as well. Twenty-five executive protection personnel from the security company ran in La Prensa’s 38th International Marathon in San Pedro Sula, Honduras. La Prensa is Honduras’ largest national press organization and sponsors the marathon each year to promote camaraderie and achievement between Hondurans and international runners.

This year’s competition, the “Gold Edition,” marked the 50th anniversary of La Prensa, distributor of Honduras’ national newspaper. Every competition sees more than 2,500 athletes gather from countries including Panama, Costa Rica, Mexico, Colombia, Guatemala, El Salvador and Kenya. This year, more than 4,800 participants and spectators gave their support to the event. The top three runners hailed from Kenya.

Andrews International Runs in La Prensa International MarathonAI employees exchanged their security boots for running shoes to join a team sponsored by their client, the largest clothing manufacturer in Honduras. As one of the cornerstones of Honduras’ economic development, the clothing manufacturer urges employee and client participation in the most well-known community event of the year.

Marathon officials noted, “La Prensa Marathon has become the inaugural mark of the June Fair and the pride of San Pedro Sula, because it promotes the values of perseverance, dedication and optimism. These values are indispensable for families and society as a whole.”

“Andrews International is a company famous for putting down roots and improving communities wherever they work,” said Tom Cseh, Deputy Director of AI’s operations in South America. “Now, we’re proud to show that we don’t just invest in our communities in the United States, but those abroad as well. Our runners didn’t finish in the top slots, but they proved to their client—and the community they support—that they’re not there to give up, and that’s something that carries over into their careers, their personal lives, and their dedication to those they protect.”
