The National Mango Board has sent Jango Mango to the Marine Corps Marathon.
Coral Gables, Fla.-based Turbana Corp. last year sponsored the Montreal Marathon in September and the Marine Corps Marathon in October.
Cincinatti-based Total Quality Logistics has put its name on the Oct. 12 Total Quality Logistics Urban Race and has backed many other running events in recent years.
For a second year, Mann Packing has worked with the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series at September race events in San Jose, Calif.; St. Louis; and Las Vegas, handing out sugar snap peas and having its mascot, Snappy, on hand for pictures and to distribute future-purchase coupons to more than 35,000 attendees at each race.
That is an incomplete list, but it’s all great. Still, I think the Lamborghini elevates the promotional appeal. A focal point like Arnstein could catch the attention of the broader consumer populace outside of marathon circles.
