Mizuno, one of the largest running footwear manufacturers in the world, is named the official footwear partner for the 2013 Inaugural Asheville Marathon at Biltmore Estate. “We are thrilled to have Mizuno as a partner of the Asheville Marathon,” said Daphne Kirkwood of iDaph Events. “Having the best footwear while training and on race day is key and Mizuno has top-of-the-line shoes for every type of runner. This is just one example why their support is essential in making this a great experience for all the runners.”
“Mizuno is in business to provide the highest quality sporting goods to athletes all over the world. Because of this, it only makes sense for us to work with people who hold themselves to this same standard,” said Matt Booth of Mizuno USA, Inc. “Daphne Kirkwood is that kind of person, and the Asheville Marathon on Biltmore Estate she is putting together, with its unique and spectacular location, beautiful route, and purpose of being an exciting well-run event without the burden of overcrowding is exactly the kind of event we want to support. We are so excited to work with Daphne and to help make this marathon a premier destination race for runners everywhere.”
