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.
There will be three locations on the Marathon March Madness voting and bracket page for display ads. Your ad will randomly rotate among the ad locations. However, you may choose the option of having your ad only appear on the highest level of the page for an additional fee. View last year's page with potential ad placements.

There will be several benefits to being the title sponsor.
