As the major running brands expand globally, marathon and road race sponsorship is a key part of their marketing plans. ASICS, adidas, Avia, Brooks, Karhu, K-SWISS, New Balance, Nike, PUMA, Saucony all sponsor marathons and road
races to reach out to core runners. Asia is
a strong growth area for the sport. For example, in India, there is a series of twenty events, with marathons, and half marathons, that bring 20,000 plus runners together. Our sport is a global one, and in this challenging global economy, the running sector is one of the few business areas that is growing at a robust level.
