Pohanka Nissan Cheer Vehicles
Here's a unique way to cheer for a special Marine Corps Historic Half runner or for runners to boast their own shout out.  Just create a motivating message or shout out for your runner and post it on the Pohanka Nissan Facebook page by Monday, May 5.  Select messages will be emblazoned on Nissan vehicles including the 2014 Altima, Juke, Rogue, Sentra and Frontier pick-up truck that will be displayed along the 13.1 mile course. The spirited vehicles will be on display in five separate locations on  the Historic Half course (making for great on-the-run photo ops). These include Fredericksburg's Hurkamp Park, historic downtown and on the now famous Hospital Hill, on the Mary Washington Healthcare campus.
