Big Sur International Marathon and Leslie Jordan Form Partnership for April Events
The Big Sur Marathon Foundation is thrilled to welcome Leslie Jordan as a Contributing Partner for the 2018 Big Sur International Marathon weekend of events. With a new brand identity in tow, BSIM returns to the custom manufacturing expertise of Leslie Jordan to create bold, Highway 1-inspired art for our participant shirts. The Big Sur Marathon Foundation takes pride in partnering with west coast-based brands to create an authentic coastal experience for runners.
Based in Portland, Oregon, Leslie Jordan has been a leading outfitter of endurance sporting events for decades. At the 2018 Running USA conference this past February, BSIM and Leslie Jordan were given the opportunity to collaborate on final design choices for the upcoming marathon.
“What an honor to partner with Big Sur again as they launch their new branding!” said Company Founder Leslie Jordan. “Their response to our service and products has been so positive, that we are delighted to be able to provide Big Sur with innovative and memorable brand apparel and accessories, to help make this upcoming Marathon weekend the best one yet!”
In addition to their first-rate production facilities, Leslie Jordan brings resources for project management and art design to the partnership. The Big Sur Marathon race weekend Events Committee is also looking forward to wearing newly designed gear manufactured by Leslie Jordan. The upcoming Big Sur International Marathon on April 29th will be the first event of the Big Sur Marathon Foundation to showcase Leslie Jordan apparel in roughly two decades.
Runners can pick up their participant shirt at the Health & Fitness Expo on Friday, April 27th from noon-6pm and Saturday, April 28th from 9am-6pm, located at the newly completed Monterey Conference Center, 1 Portola Plaza in Monterey.
