The Cayman Islands Marathon continues to garner increasing support from both the running and corporate community. The event’s most recent assurance comes from Intertrust Cayman (formerly Close Brothers Cayman Ltd), who has made a long-term commitment and injected significant funds into the event to become title sponsor of the race.
Now named the Intertrust Cayman Islands Marathon, the race takes place on Sunday 4 December and consists of a full marathon, half marathon, four-person relay and Kids Fun Run. Registration is open online at CaymanIslandsMarathon.com and organisers are urging residents to register early in order to get great prices.
“We are very excited about this new partnership with Intertrust Cayman,” said Race Director Rhonda Kelly. “We are always thinking of ways to improve the race experience for our runners and Intertrust’s financial commitment and resources will allow us to implement some additional elements we have been talking about. They have also come to the table with some unique and creative ideas, particularly as it relates to increasing participation from the business sector, and raising general awareness of the event so we look forward to collaborating with them on these enhancements.
“This race just keeps getting bigger and better each year and it is because of the support of all of our great sponsors who see the benefit of this event not only to the people who participate in it but also to the island as a sports tourism product. We just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has invested in the Cayman Islands Marathon and we look forward to great things on 4 December.”
Kelly went on to say that along with Intertrust, eight new sponsors have joined the Marathon family for the 2011 event. They are Conyers Dill and Pearman, Cayman Airways, Ernst and Young, Caybrew Light, Smoothie King, Harneys, Coca-Cola and KRYS Global.
“Intertrust Cayman is pleased to be the new title sponsor of the Cayman Islands Marathon,” said Linburgh Martin, Managing Director.
“This race has become a fixture in the sporting community and has earned the reputation of a well-organised, fun and friendly event. We are happy to associate the Intertrust brand of quality, personal service and attention with this race and we are anticipating a mutually beneficial, long-term partnership with the Cayman Marathon.”
