The 2021 Main Marathon, scheduled for October 3 in Portland, Maine, has received the support of Geiger (PPAI 105182, D12) as a gold-level sponsor and merchandise provider. In addition, the Lewiston, Maine-based distributor will manage an online store year-round for official Maine Marathon apparel and merchandise.

"For a long time, we have had a strong demand for Maine Marathon merchandise from our runners, volunteers and other supporters all over this country. With Geiger and their generous donation, we now have an online store that exceeds our expectations," says Bob Dunfey, volunteer race director.

At the center of the Maine Marathon’s mission is giving back to the community, both directly and indirectly. As a nonprofit race, the Gorham Savings Bank Maine Marathon donates 40 percent of its gross profits to charitable organizations in the community, which has added up to more than $5.4 million donated since 1997.

“We’re excited to support the 2021 Maine Marathon. The event is a premier competition in Maine which benefits numerous local charities," says Chris McKee, Geiger senior vice president and chief revenue officer. "We congratulate all of the competitors and the team of volunteers that make this event possible.”
