Daufuskie Island Marathon Sponsor Opportunities

Welcome to the Rough Runners Daufuskie Island Marathon and Ultra sponsorship webpage!  We thank you for your interest!  We are offering several sponsorship packages to meet any budget for this dynamic race on culturally rich, beautiful Daufuskie Island.  The race is USATF certified making it a qualifier for nationally recognized races such as the Boston Marathon, New York Marathons.

Sponsorship packages:

  • Lighthouse package: $2000
  • Sea Turtle package: $1000
  • Sand Dollar package: $500
  • Mile Markers: $100

Mile Markers: $100 


The least expensive sponsor package is for purchasing a customized mile marker.   The mile markers are 24″x18″.  The upper 4.5″ x 18″ across of each marker is for the sponsors logo, picture(s), personal quote, etc.  You pick the mile you would like (miles: 1-39, 13.1, 26.2, 39.3).  If that mile is available it is yours.  After the race you get to keep your mile marker.  We can mail the marker to you after the race or you may wait until the race is over and take the marker.
