This years London Marathon is only a few weeks away making it the ideal time to purchase promotional branded merchandise relevant to the event. With over 30,000 runners competing on the day, half a million spectators lining the route and 5 million people watching on the TV, think how many potential customers could see your company name and logo!
So how do you do this? Well you need to provide merchandise that will have a use on the day. What about a promotional water bottle with your name and logo on it? This could be given to people who you know are running the event to promote your company name. Last year over 710,000 bottles of water were consumed so there is definitely a need for a water bottle!
Another ideal promotional item is a promotional t-shirt for runners to wear. This again could be branded with your company name and logo. With such a large print space you could also include a message or image to really make your brand stand out.
If you don’t know anyone participating in the run why not distribute branded merchandise to the half a million spectators watching the event? Ideal products include promotional whistles, megaphones and banners and flags. All these items can be branded with your logo creating a positive association with the marathon.
The above promotional items can also be used for the other big runs that take place in the UK including the Great Manchester Run and the Great North Run giving your merchandise longevity and repeated usage.
