Sydney Marathon announces exciting Partnership with Porsche: Ensuring your best performance

Both Porsche and Sydney Marathon are fuelled by a passion for making dreams come true. That is why this is an ideal collaboration.

With the Sydney Marathon only weeks away, and an Australian marathon participation record set for the event, we have partnered with Porsche Cars Australia to fuel our dreams on and off the road.

Further cementing its commitment to helping people reach their goals and realise their dreams, the historic Sydney marathon is proud to announce that Porsche, the iconic luxury sportscar brand, is the Official Automotive Partner of the 2023 Sydney Marathon, presented by ASICS. Porsche will once again provide the all-electric lead cars for the Sydney Marathon elite marathon field, sharing the road with the fastest marathoners ever to set foot in Australia.

Porsche is driven by dreams, performance, efficiency, and proven results. All these concepts are essential to their outlook, especially when it comes to their mission toward e-performance and electromobility (electric cars).

“As we count down to the historic 2023 Sydney Marathon, we are looking to align with global brands that truly match our desire to help people reach their goals and realise their dreams. That’s why we are excited to announce that Porsche is the Official Automotive Partner of the 2023 Sydney Marathon, presented by ASICS” stated Wayne Larden, Sydney Marathon Race Director.

As a global leader in high performance sports cars, Porsche is known for a relentless pursuit of excellence and constantly beating their own benchmarks. And that is exactly what they have done with the release of Porsche Taycan – the first electric sportscar with the soul of a Porsche.

This innovative all-electric sportscar combines the luxury experience of driving a Porsche, with a striking design, impressive range and cutting-edge technology, to deliver an electrifying driving experience like no other.

“With the Sydney Marathon, we have a harmonious blend of precision, performance, and perseverance. Just as runners strive for the finish line, Porsche’s engineering excellence drives us towards an inspiring horizon of innovation and determination. When passion and technology unite, there’s no limit to what we can achieve” said CEO and Managing Director of Porsche Cars Australia, Daniel Schmollinger.

It is Porsche’s strong focus on sustainability, efficiency, and endurance-focused performance, not to mention cleaner air for athletes and spectators, that perfectly aligns with Sydney Marathon’s mission to create the one of the best running events in the world.

The Sydney Marathon is excited to see where this bold new partnership with Porsche takes us, on and off the road.
