Suncorp Bank has extended its partnership with the annual Gold Coast Airport Marathon, sale which is on the 6 – 7 July, anabolics with the renewed sponsorship to include naming rights of the 5.7km Challenge for 2013 and 2014.

Suncorp Bank Regional General Manager for the Gold Coast, vcialis 40mg Michael Hall, said the organisation was proud to continue its association with the Gold Coast Airport Marathon as a major sponsor for the next two years.

“Suncorp Bank is very proud to announce the renewal of our partnership with the Gold Coast Airport Marathon in 2013,” said Mr Hall.

“The new partnership will see Suncorp Bank continue as a major sponsor of the 2013 and 2014 events – and naming rights partner of the Suncorp Bank 5.7km Challenge.”

Mr Hall encouraged Suncorp Bank staff and customers to take part in the event and said he was looking forward to seeing his team assist thousands of participants in various areas over the weekend.

“Since we came on board in 2011, the Gold Coast Airport Marathon has become one of the most popular events for our staff and customers here in South East Queensland,” said Mr Hall.

“The great thing about the Gold Coast Airport Marathon is that the program features events for all ages and abilities. Last year we had more than 250 staff participate in the event or volunteer over the weekend and many took the opportunity to enjoy a day out with their family and friends.

“This year we’re looking forward to another fantastic weekend. Our team will be out in force taking part in the events supporting participants through the Suncorp Bank Volunteer Program including helping out at the event information booths, left luggage tents and aid stations.”

Mr Hall said the Gold Coast Airport Marathon was a great opportunity to deliver the SunWise message and spend time with local Suncorp Bank employees and customers.

“As in previous years, we will also be taking the opportunity to spread the SunWise message by reminding racegoers to wear 30+ sunscreen, a hat and sun protective clothing while out in the Queensland sun.

Gold Coast Events General Manager Cameron Hart welcomed the renewed partnership between Suncorp Bank and the Gold Coast Airport Marathon.

“Since 2011, Suncorp Bank has been a great supporter and major sponsor of the Gold Coast Airport Marathon and we’re thrilled to have them on board for another two years,” said Mr Hart.

“The 5.7km Challenge is about involving the community in physical activity and that is why Suncorp Bank is the perfect match for this race and the event as a whole.

“In addition, they will continue their pivotal role in supporting the event’s volunteer program, left luggage and information booths which are essential in the delivery of our event.

“We apply considerable resources to servicing all of our sponsorships to ensure our commercial partners are getting a return on their investment and we provide the benefits they are seeking.

“Suncorp Bank’s increased investment and the renewal of other sponsorships since the record-breaking 2012 event is a great reward for a lot of hard work.”

The 35th Gold Coast Airport Marathon will be held on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 July 2013.
