“We are certain that we can break the magic figure of 10,000 in this anniversary year of the ‘most beautiful island marathon in the world‘. Thanks go to all the loyal runners as well as the newcomers,“ said Michael Lambertz, Chief Marketing Officer TUI Travel. In 2012 some 9,500 runners took part in the TUI Marathon Palma de Mallorca.
The anniversary marathon welcomes two new sponsors: Artiva, a provider of high quality sports clothing from Berlin, is to be the outfitter of the running gear and the event shirts. Artiva will also produce the T-shirts for the numerous voluntary helpers along the route.
The TUI Lifestyle hotel brand PURAVIDA Resort has taken over the title sponsoring of the 10 km Run and as such will lend its name to the attractive sightseeing route through the old town. TUI is offering guests of the PURAVIDA Resort Blau PortoPetro a free transfer to Palma.
