NHRMC Wilmington Marathon Names Official Automobile Sponsor

November 5, 2019

Hendrick Toyota Wilmington committed to enhancing and growing the event.

Wilmington, NC – Hendrick Toyota Wilmington and the NHRMC Wilmington Marathon Madness Weekend announced a major partnership naming Toyota the Official Automobile and Truck Sponsor of the longstanding running event. The 11th annual NHRMC Wilmington Marathon and Runner’s Expo takes place March 20-21, 2020.

“We are incredibly excited to add a sponsor like Hendrick Toyota of Wilmington that consistently supports area events and charities,” said Tom Clifford, Event Director. “The addition of major, well known, and respected brands like the Hendrick Automotive Group and Toyota elevates the status and visibility of the NHRMC Wilmington Marathon as we strive to always improve and continue to grow.”

“This event provides a great stage for Hendrick Toyota Wilmington to help support and grow an already fantastic event,” said Doug Thompson, General Manager, Hendrick Toyota. “This is the largest running event in the Wilmington area, but the event can still double in size which doubles the positive economic and charitable fundraising impact. It made great sense on a lot of fronts for us to get involved in a major way!”

Hendrick Toyota Wilmington and the event team designed the partnership to enhance the overall experience for runners, spectators, visitors and the residents of the Cape Fear region. The partnership will provide event day volunteers, special discounts for runners, promotions and will amplify the marketing of the event to help bring more road awareness and safety.

“The additional marketing is an important aspect of any of our larger partnerships. The 2020 event has several big changes including the redesign of the course which starts at Johnny Mercer Pier and finish on Water Street downtown making this a point to point destination race,” added Clifford. “We need to get the word out because we know this will be one of the top marathon courses in the country and we also want residents and visitors to know the new road closures and to be cheering and supporting all the runners .”
