Gore-Tex Philadelphia Marathonadmin
Every year in November, over 100,000 people gather in Philadelphia, PA to watch, participate in, or work at the Gore-Tex Philadelphia Marathon. This year was no different, and goCharge had the pleasure of co-branding the impressive Eagle charging solution with Gore-Tex, the event’s title sponsor. The charging solution was strategically placed in Gore-Tex’s Runner VIP area, and received constant use throughout the event.
“This could be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,” said one runner, who came over to the unit after receiving a post-race massage. “I was listening to music on my phone throughout the entire race and now it’s dead. I was literally just thinking to myself ‘man, I wish I could charge my phone right now’.”
Among the slew of runners coming over to use the Eagle after they finished were their family, friends and volunteers. Throughout the day, there were just shy of 250 people who charged up their phones with the Eagle. goCharge is extremely pleased with the reception, and are excited to be a part of next year’s event.
