BUILDING TRUST AND DELIVERING RESULTS

After the overwhelming success of our first five years and with the experience held by our organizing committee and department leads, The Louisiana Marathon has quickly become a trusted sponsorship partner.

Our multi-day event provides many opportunities to identify and cultivate relationships with influencers in Louisiana and national running community. Engage year-round in an authentic and inspired way.

Sponsor packages are catered, so we begin by listening to meet specific marketing goals and objectives before aligning with our offerings. We provide a variety of packages: Title, Presenting, Official, Corporate, Sports and Community.

DO OUR EFFORTS ALIGN?

Impacting lives is what motivates our partners, organizing committee members, race production krewe personnel, ambassadors, volunteers and runners. If your company shares a like-minded approach and wants a partner with many vehicles to assist in recognizing these goals and objectives, then The Louisiana Marathon may be right for you.

Purpose + Passion + Profit.

We understand that core business objectives — sales and customer development — are critical business lifelines which enable community engagement initiatives. We anchor our engagements on core business objectives in order to enable and advance our partners efforts to impact the community. Many organizations also leverage our event to build awareness, impact corporate wellness programs and convert sales and lead generation.

BENEFITS OF PARTNERING

BUILD AWARENESS

DEVELOP RELATIONSHIPS

Engage in our social media success and develop influencers as well as customers

INCREASE CONVERSIONS

Leverage our digital promotions efforts to secure leads, and sell your product at our two expo and festival days as well as our dozens of local and national ambassador engagement opportunities

ENHANCE CORPORATE WELLNESS PROGRAMMING

Several of our partners are decreasing insurance premiums with comprehensive wellness programs. Use our races and engage our running experts to complement your programs. We regularly participate in lunch-and-learns, and we can also connect your human resource department with teams of running experts to frame training and educational activities.

IMPACT COMMUNITY OUTREACH AND CHARITABLE FUNDRAISING

Many sponsors use our event to impact their community outreach and charitable fundraising. Some partners not only cover registrations for their staff to run, but they also invite others in the community to run on their dime. And some organizations also encourage runners to run for charities as a means of fundraising. Since 2012, we have generated over $500,000 and advanced the efforts of many corporations as they drive non-profit and community initiatives.
