SAN DIEGO, CALIF. — November 21, 2013The ACTIVE Network, Inc., the leader in cloud-based Activity and Participant Management™ (APM) solutions, has proudly powered more than 100,000 marathon runners across the finish line since the start of the fall 2013 marathon season.  ACTIVE Network is the technology partner to four of the 10 largest marathons in the US.  Among the largest fall marathons, the Portland Marathon celebrated its 41st anniversary in October with more than 9,300 participants.
