3rd Annual Marathon March Madness TournamentTM Advertising



We are offering the opportunity for select running or fitness-related companies to advertise their products or services on our Marathon March Madness TournamentTM promotion.


The 3rd annual Marathon March Madness TournamentTM is an NCAA Basketball tournament-style contest in which visitors to our site vote for their favorite marathons. There are six rounds of voting, with the winners moving on to the next round until a champion is crowned. Last year the Marathon Madness voting and brackets page alone received more than 20,000 visits during the tournament (3/11 – 4/1). We anticipate a significant growth in visits for this year’s tournament. It is a great opportunity to increase your revenue and brand awareness.


There are a couple of ways to advertise during this month-long event: Display Ads and Title Sponsorship.
