Skechers Performance returns as the title sponsor for the 2019 Skechers Performance Los Angeles Marathon on Sunday, March 24. At the big event and throughout race weekend, the brand will offer exclusive race-branded merchandise to runners as well as fans.
“Now in our fourth year as title sponsor, we are proud to host more than 24,000 runners from across the United States and more than 60 countries, who will join us in bringing this monumental event to life,” said Michael Greenberg, President of Skechers.
“From first-time marathoners to seasoned runners and elite athletes to all the fans and supporters, we look forward to the camaraderie and enthusiasm that this race creates for Southern California. And we’ll be watching Skechers elite athlete Weldon Kirui when he runs Sunday to attempt a record third victory on this iconic course.”
Visitors to the Skechers Performance booth at the Health & Fitness Expo in the Los Angeles Convention Center will have the opportunity to meet Weldon Kirui, as well as four-time Olympian Meb Keflezighi on Saturday, March 23 at 11:00 PT. Keflezighi will also be signing his new book, ‘26 Marathons: What I’ve Learned About Faith, Identity, Running, and Life From Each Marathon I’ve Run’ (Rodale Books), which will be available for purchase.
A collection of exclusive race-themed footwear and apparel will be offered at the expo. Influenced by the colours of LA’s top sports teams, the collection includes limited edition pairs of Skechers GO RUN Forza 3 and Skechers GO RUN Ride 7 shoes. Additionally, a new colour of the Skechers GO RUN Razor 3 Hyper will debut and be available for purchase at the expo. This new training and racing style features a ‘Hyper Burst’ midsole and was recently named Editors’ Choice by Runner’s World.
