LINCOLN, RI – Amica Insurance is proud to announce that it will be the title sponsor of both the Amica Marathon in Newport and the Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon in Seattle, WA, for the next five years.
"Amica is thrilled to announce its new five-year partnerships with these two races, especially given the success of the past events,” said Julie Montalbano, sponsorship supervisor at Amica Insurance. “These partnerships will help ensure continued success of the marathons, while supporting the marathon community by providing an outstanding assortment of events for race enthusiasts of all ages.”
Amica has sponsored the Amica Marathon, formerly known as the Breakers Marathon, for the past four years. The name was changed to the Amica Marathon in 2009. This year’s weekend-long event will be held Oct. 15 and 16 and will feature the Amica Marathon, a half marathon and a 5K race. Nearly 5,000 people participated in the 2010 event and even more are expected this year.
"Eident Sports is pleased to extend our partnership with Amica Insurance through 2016,” said Brewer Rowe, executive vice president of Eident Sports Marketing, organizer of the Amica Marathon. “With Amica's vision and support of the running community, the Amica Marathon has become the fastest growing race in New England in the last couple of years and we look forward to continued growth and success.”
The Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon, which takes place each year over Thanksgiving weekend, has become a tradition in the city of Seattle. Nearly 17,000 people participated in the marathon series of events last year, which marked the 40th birthday of the Seattle Marathon Association. Amica has also sponsored this event for the past four years.
This year’s Amica Insurance Seattle Marathon, Marathon Walk, Half Marathon and Half Marathon Walk will take place Nov. 27. All events will start and end at the historic Seattle Center downtown and will traverse the streets of the Emerald City, affording sweeping vistas of this important seaport town.
"It’s a privilege to have Amica Insurance back with us for another five years,” said Seattle Marathon Association Board President John Kokes. “Amica understands the importance of customer service and treating people with respect. These are values the Seattle Marathon Association has promoted for more than 40 years. We look forward to continuing this great partnership.”
