Introducing the Pharmacy 777 George Bass Marathon - naming rights, major sponsorship announced

 

The 2018 Pharmacy 777 George Bass Marathon.  

The Pharmacy 777 team is very excited to be the brand new naming rights major sponsor for the George Bass Marathon, recently announced by the George Bass Surf Boat Marathon committee.

The George Bass Marathon is held biennially from Batemans Bay to Eden, a 190 kilometre race made up of seven legs over seven days. 

Pharmacy 777 Managing Director Kim Brotherson said partnering with Surf Life Saving and the George Bass Marathon made perfect sense.

“Surf Life Saving is all about saving lives and creating healthy Australians by encouraging physical activity and participation in sport,” he said.

“The George Bass Marathon is the pinnacle of fitness and endurance for Surf Boat Rowing and has a proud history of attracting the very best competitors from all over Australia. 

“We’re very proud to be involved with the event and believe the synergies with healthy and active lifestyles and our approach to supporting the community go hand in hand.”

Marathon organiser Andrew Edmunds welcomed Pharmacy 777 announcement and looked forward to their involvement. “Without the support of sponsors, volunteers, community and local councils the event would cease to exist, so we thank them for all their ongoing contributions and support.

“The Pharmacy 777 George Bass Marathon is the world’s longest and toughest endurance surf boat and ski race,” he said.

“This year is shaping up to be one of the largest in the 42 year history of the event.”
