2024 Sponsors and Sponsorship Opportunities

Not only do our sponsors help us put on top-quality events for our runners, but they also help us contribute even more to our charitable partners. These local foundations and businesses have played key roles in supporting our 2023 racing season.

The Delaware and Lehigh National Heritage Corridor preserves, interprets and leverages the nationally significant history of the 165-mile transportation route between Wilkes-Barre and Bristol, Pennsylvania. By building and maintaining public and private partnerships, we create four vital connections.




With 2,400 square miles encompassing northeast Pennsylvania's Carbon, Monroe, Pike and Wayne counties, the Pocono Mountains region is home to rolling mountain terrain, breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls, thriving woodlands and 170 miles of winding rivers. Of course, they're also the gorgeous home of the Jim Thorpe Area Running Festival!
Whether the festival is your first trip to the Poconos or your one-thousand-and-first, the Pocono Mountain Visitors Bureau is here to help you with every aspect of your stay, from lodging to dining to entertainment. 

The Pottstown Area Health & Wellness Foundation is a non-profit, community organization dedicated to assuring increased access to health and wellness education and services. We provide some of these services through Foundation programming, but the majority of services are provided through funding of other non-profit health and wellness providers.
We award grants to area organizations that best use their resources, services and products to achieve positive outcomes. Outcomes are things that benefit people’s health and well-being, such as new knowledge, increased skills, positive change in attitude or values, positive change in behavior or an improved condition.

We offer the tools and motivation for people to improve their health and well-being every day.
By helping area residents enthusiastically embrace a healthier lifestyle, we are creating a more dynamic and more vibrant community in which to live.
