SPONSORSHIP INFORMATION

According to Running USA, the median age of marathon runners is 38.3 years of age, 78.8% are college graduates, and 72% earn $75,000 or more per year. Most runners are professionals, executives, business owners, and top sales people. This group is tech savvy, they like to travel, eat healthy and stay a step ahead of the curve in what's new. If this is your target market, The "Road to Carthage Marathon" can help you reach it!

Unlike many marathons that are regional in their reach and appeal, the "Road to Carthage Marathon" appeals to runners in all 50 states, Canada and throughout the world. In addition to posting our event on the majority of national and international websites which promote our event, we send a comprehensive mailer in all 50 states, advertise, and get extensive media coverage, both local, and national. We apply a comprehensive social media campaign that includes advertising and promotion. Depending on your level of sponsorship your company name will get exposure throughout the year in most if not all of these marketing opportunities.

There are five levels of sponsorship participation for the "Road to Carthage Marathon". 

To better accommodate you and help you achieve your goals we will customize a sponsor package that fits your needs and reaches your target market. Contact chris@carthagemarathon.com, or call 760-681-0922 for more information.
