Why Support The Event?
The Marathon is an opportunity to raise the profile of Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea. Each year close to a thousand runners come to the town, many bringing family and friends, and choosing to stay over night bringing business to accommodation providers, eateries, pubs, shops etc. The UK Tourist Advisory Group 2016 figures state the average spend per day, per visitor is £19.45, rising to £27.50 for overnight stays.
The event creates a reason for people to visit and discover our seaside towns. We know from research conducted by ourselves in 2015 that a high percentage of our runners return for holidays or days out throughout the year. This helps increase the prosperity for the area’s businesses and the community as a whole in addition to the direct benefits of the weekend itself.
Benefits of Sponsorship
In addition to the direct benefits the event brings many businesses, all event sponsors receive exposure on this website. The exact nature of which depends on level of sponsorship. Where appropriate sponsors may also be the subject of a News Page article or receive mentions on our popular Facebook Page and/or Twitter Feed. Further opportunities include inclusion on the events t-shirts, race numbers, literature – the opportunities are boundless. Sponsorship packages provide promotion for a twelve month period. Our high quality t-shirts will be worn for many years and travel all over the world.
Major sponsors are also invited to provide advertising banners which will be placed around the start/finish area on the day of the event.
Accommodation providers can also pay for a listing on this sites accommodation page ensuring they are among the first options the runner is likely to see when he or she is booking an overnight stay or subsequent visit.
