5 Favorite marathons and their sponsors

Posted on: September 13, 2012

Sponsors from Gatorade to the American Cancer Society display their support — and advertisements — on the banners of  top marathons. 

The grueling 26 mile race can offer amazing marketing opportunities for companies and organizations.  The Boston Marathon reported 26,655 registered runners with 500,000 spectators in 2012.  

Here is a list of some top 5 marathons, upcoming dates,  and their top sponsors:

1.  Boston Marathon, Boston, Massachusetts,

     April 15, 2013 — the cream of the crop.  Sets the

     standard for most marathons. 

2013 Boston Marathon

Top Sponsors:  John Hancock, Addidas, and Dana-Farber Cancer Institute

2.  New York City Marathon, NYC, New York,

     November 4, 2012 — the countdown to the Big Apple. 

Top Sponsors:

3Midnight Sun Marathon,  Tromsø, Norway,

These are some of the marathons for the seasoned runners with a qualifying performance for the race.   

We chose to travel to the Savannah Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon, November 3, 2012 in Savannah, Ga. The American Cancer Society is a top sponsor.  Savannah, est. 1733, was our destination because of the training schedule, the sponsor — hubby is a cancer survivor — and the lure of the southern history, restaurants, and charm. 

If you are a runner; how do you choose a race?

Nice list – but how did Norway make it to a list of “5 top North American Marathons”?

Thanks — Norway is now a favorite.
