Why Sponsor The Hull Marathon?

Supporting the City - With Hull in the spotlight as UK City of Culture this year there has never been a better time to showcase Hull. By supporting our event you will be showing your support of Hull as a city on the up.

Win New Business - By choosing any one of the options below your organisation will be reaching potentially thousands of new customers. Your name and logo will be on the pre-event publicity, runners will see your presence on the day, and your organisation will be permanently associated with a world class event.

Promote Your Organisation's Values - We want the event to be an opportunity for people to challenge themselves. This will reflect the ethos of your organisation as well; setting objectives, working towards these, and achieving these goals.

Health and Well-Being - The event will encourage people to be fit and active, reflecting your organisation's desire to further the welfare of your staff and customers.
