Garmin® is pleased to announce its continued support of the Garmin New Forest Marathon, set to take place on Sunday 11th September. Returning to its pre-COVID location at New Park Showground, the event will see over 2,000 runners of all abilities taking part.
Garmin’s European headquarters are situated on the edge of the New Forest National Park and the brand has supported the event for a number of years.
To celebrate the event, Garmin is providing a 25% discount code off selected products to those who have registered for a race. This includes products from Garmin’s forerunner range, which caters for all runners from complete beginners to elite level.
As always, the event promises to provide plenty of entertainment. Attendees can expect a vibrant race village packed with food and drink, live music and camping. A Garmin chill out zone will allow participants to unwind pre and post-race, and the Garmin stand will feature the brand’s latest running products. The protection of the New Forest is important to Garmin and the New Forests Marathon team, who together work incredibly hard to ensure the event has zero impact on the New Forest habitat.
Jack Fairbrother, Head of Brand Marketing at Garmin UK commented: “We are delighted to continue our long-standing support for the New Forest Marathon. We’re based on the edge of the National Park, which is the perfect location for product testing and lunchtime runs. We’re proud to support our local running community and give people the chance to get hands on with our newest Forerunner GPS Running Watches.”
Andy Daish, Event Director at the Garmin New Forest Marathon commented: “We are so pleased to continue to work with Garmin and are delighted to be taking the event back to our pre-covid location at the New Park Showgrounds. This year is set to be another great one, with live music, lots of activities and camping available.”
