Thank you to Cerrone Auto Group for joining the Inaugural Providence Half Marathon as its title sponsor. We are currently seeking additional sponsors for the September 26th event and provide the following information. If you or your organization has an interest, please contact us as soon as possible, as specific sponsorship levels and opportunities will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Overview of Opportunities
The inaugural Providence Half Marathon presents numerous sponsorship opportunities to become a partner in the presentation of a first class, national class, 13.1 mile race through the streets of Providence. The event will be both an athletic spectacle, attracting international elite runners who will compete for cash prizes, and also a race for thousands of participants who aim for personal satisfaction in running well and having fun.

The weekend activities will include a health and fitness expo at the Rhode Island Convention Center on Saturday, September 25. The expo will provide sponsors the chance to sell, display, distribute goods, present equipment or describe services to thousands of race entrants as they pick up their bib numbers and race packets. The expo is open and free to the general public.

The weekend activities are certain to attract wide local, regional and national publicity.

The 2004 Half Marathon benefits the Boys & Girls Clubs of Providence.

We are soliciting additional sponsors with a commitment of $5000.

  • Logo placement on 40,000, full color, entry form brochures to be directly mailed and distributed nationally.
  • Logo on back of participant and volunteer t-shirts.
