Under the slogan “Leave everything for your purpose” , Naranja will be present at the traditional pre-race expo (Buenos Aires Half Marathon). Giving away a sports neck to every runner who passes through the stand and share their purpose on networks with the hashtag #21KNaranja . On the day of the competition, the runner community will enjoy the Orange Dome experience. Where a myofascial release service will be offered to predispose muscle mass to effort (before the race). And facilitate the recovery of muscles (after the race).

Romina Ruffino, Orange Branding Manager, highlights: “Participating in this great event allows us to promote well-being, joy and improvement. Attributes that match our brand values. We chose to accompany this marathon because we are convinced that it is the purposes that put us in motion. They fill us with energy and drive us to go further.” 

More than 25,000 runners from all over the country, including the best in the world for the distance of 21 kilometers, will meet in this competition organized by the Rhea Association. That constitutes the prelude to the Buenos Aires International Marathon to be held in September.
