Impact Marathon Series and Harrison Creative met at The National Running Show in January 2018, when we were showcasing our event branding range. After the event, they were quick to get in touch regarding their upcoming visit to Guatemala.
Impact Marathon Series is a social business designed to harness the power of marathons whilst sustainably building communities and bringing people together, leaving a lasting impact on the world.
The Impact Marathon Series landed in Guatemala from 5th to 11th March 2018, where an extraordinary experience was guaranteed.
Participants would be treated to the usual blend of stunning locations, hugely impactful volunteering and the hardest race of their life. With a volcanic backdrop and some massive social issues to support – it was an unmissable race for any runner. Race day itself saw 30 international runners and a further 150 Guatemalan runners participating.
The Impact Marathon Series were looking for 30 metres of custom branded Scrim along with numerous Feather Flags to brand part of the route and the Athletes Village, helping to bring the event to life. The Feather Flags and Scrim were to showcase the event logo along with their sponsor logos.
Impact Marathon already had their artwork designed, therefore the skills of our in-house designers weren’t required. We simply amended their artwork to fit our guidelines, ensuring the products would look their best after print.
We printed 30 metres of scrim onto Polymesh and printed two styles of Feather Flags. The Scrim was used to line part of the route, particularly the finish line. Printing onto Polymesh meant the colours would be vibrant and would stand out against the stunning background.
Impact Marathon were promised an Event Arch for the finish line by a supplier in Guatemala, but unfortunately, they were let down at the last minute. This meant they had to use their initiative and find an alternative to brand the finish line. Our Feather Flags were chosen to help give shape. The ability to use the same product throughout numerous elements of the race shows the versatility of our products.
“We would like to thank Harrison’s for their support in the run up to the Impact Marathon Series. We asked for Feather Flags and Scrim and that’s exactly what we received.
At the last minute we were let down by another supplier and had to use your Feather Flags to give shape to the finish line. They made it look incredible without imposing too much on the beautiful landscape.
We can’t wait to work with Harrison’s on our next event!”
