The DISA Gran Canaria Marathon 2015 will be held on January 25th 2015. Shortly, some news about this edition will be announced.
The agreement to continue being the main sponsor of the DISA Gran Canaria Marathon was signed on 26th June, after the meeting between Lucas Bravo de Laguna, Minister of Sports of Gran Canaria, and Aristides Bonilla, Marketing Director of DISA.
Considering the success of this event in 2014, DISA did not hesitate to renew this agreement and renaming one more year the most important athletics event held in the Canary Islands. DISA will be the sponsor of the three main races: Marathon, Half Marathon and 10 K.
The values promulgated in this event organized by the Town Council of Gran Canaria, match those values that DISA promote among its thousands of employees, so a durable relationship between DISA and this event is expected by the direction of this company.
Meanwhile, Mr. Lucas Bravo de Laguna announced he was "very pleased for this new agreement with DISA, because for the Town Council of Gran Canaria and the Regional Ministry of Sports, it means that the company was satisfied with the impact and results of the last edition of this event.
As I have said previously, this private contribution is essential for the growth of this Marathon and especially to counteract the annual contribution made by the Town Council.”
"The Island Sports Institute started working on this event since January 2014 to achieve the 33% of public, private contributions and inscriptions, but the efforts are being focused on the race quality for the runners, trying to overcome those small details that can be improved regarding previous editions", Mr. Bravo de Laguna concluded.
Once more year, the DISA Gran Canaria Marathon 2015 aspires to be the reference event of the athletes in the Canary Islands, becoming a great sporting and social party thanks to its wide range of activities; but also wants to become an important event in the international races calendar. A legend of the sport, the Ethiopian athlete Haile Gebrselassie, will help the best ambassador possible as the godfather of the 2014 edition.
