Equinox and B.A.A. in Multi-Year Boston Marathon Sponsorship

Equinox and the B.A.A. Announce Multi-Year Boston Marathon Sponsorship

                       

BOSTON ‰ÛÒ Equinox
and the Boston Athletic Association (B.A.A.) today proudly announced
the beginning of a multiple-year sponsorship agreement, connecting the
high performance lifestyle leader to the Boston Marathon, the world‰Ûªs
oldest annual marathon. Together, Equinox and the Boston Marathon will
further their parallel missions of promoting healthy lifestyles through
athletics.

 

Since its
inception in 1991, Equinox has distinguished itself in the performance
industry with 86 global locations dedicated to all aspects of fitness,
including movement, nutrition, and regeneration. Equinox-branded
programs, services, and products include strength and cardio training,
studio classes, personal training, spa services and products, apparel,
and food/juice bars.

 

Equinox has deep
roots in Boston, opening its first location on Dartmouth St. in 2007,
just steps from the Boston Marathon finish line. Equinox opened
additional locations at Franklin St. and Chestnut Hill in 2009 and
2011, respectively, along with Equinox Sports Club Boston in 2014.
Equinox is preparing for the opening of its fifth Boston-area location
in the Seaport District later this year. 

 

As an official sponsor, Equinox will have a presence before the start and after the finish of the 121st
Boston Marathon on April 17, 2017. At the Athletes‰Ûª Village in
Hopkinton, Equinox will help runners get in the zone for their
26.2-mile journey to Boston via a first look at its soon-to-launch
guided meditations, which will be available on the Equinox app in May.
Beyond the finish in Boston, Equinox will have an experiential presence
connecting with spectators, family, and friends of runners.

 

‰ÛÏWe‰Ûªre pleased to
add Equinox to our family of Boston Marathon sponsors,‰Û said Tom Grilk,
B.A.A. Chief Executive Officer. “The B.A.A.’s mission at its core has
always been the promotion of healthy lifestyles, especially through the
sport of running. In addition, athletic excellence has been a
cornerstone of the Boston Marathon’s tradition. We are proud to partner
with Equinox, which shares the same values and beliefs toward athletics
as the B.A.A.”

 

‰ÛÏAs an integral
part of this spirited city, Equinox is thrilled to be partnering with
an iconic organization like the B.A.A.,‰Û said Scott Rosen, Equinox
President and COO. ‰ÛÏThanks to the work we do in our clubs every day, we
feel a deep connection to the runners, coaches, and spectators that
make up the Boston Marathon community, and take pride in our presence
at one of the world‰Ûªs most revered finish lines.‰Û
