Nationale-Nederlanden will remain title sponsor of the Marathon Rotterdam for the next three editions. The financial services provider also extended the contract for the same period as the name giver of the City Pier City Loop Den Haag.
"We are very happy with the new agreement," said Mario Kadiks, CEO Golazo Netherlands. "Especially in these uncertain times, it is tremendous support and a sign of appreciation and trust that Nationale-Nederlanden has committed itself to us for longer."
The two popular events have been known since 2015 as the NN Marathon Rotterdam and the NN CPC Loop Den Haag. The next editions are both planned for the fall. The "CPC" on Sunday, September 26. The marathon and associated running events in the weekend of 23 and 24 October.
Kadiks: ,,Nationale-Nederlanden is an excellent fit for our events. Together we want to get people moving in a healthy way. As organizations we strengthen each other. In recent years we have worked together in an intensive and pleasant way. We look forward to an inspiring follow-up.""
Nationale-Nederlanden, part of NN Group, is a supporter of all runners. From the amateur who trains hard for his first 5 kilometers to Eliud Kipchoge of the NN Running Team, who was the first person in the world to run the marathon under 2 hours. NN supports runners and running in various ways, both nationally and globally.
“Participating in a running race is important for many runners”, says Remco Barbier, Head of Branding of NN Group. “In the coming years we want to offer runners an extra special experience with our sponsor activations, such as the Running Supporter.”
Barbier: ,,Running is a sport for everyone, for young and old. To encourage young people to exercise more, NN will also continue to sponsor the Kids Runs. These 1 and 2.5 kilometer races will take place on the Coolsingel on the Saturday before the marathon.""
We would like to celebrate our anniversary edition in the grand and festive way for which we are known worldwide. The chance that the event can take place safely is much greater in October than in April. Public health always comes first. Every individually registered runner will be able to keep their place in the rescheduled event as previously communicated.Read more
