AUSTIN, Texas, October 22, 2018 -- High Five Events is excited to announce Ascension Seton as the title sponsor of the Austin Marathon. The multi-year agreement includes naming rights, race weekend activations, and community engagement opportunities. Additionally, Ascension Seton will be the Official Medical Provider of the Austin Marathon. The Ascension Seton Austin Marathon presented by Under Armour® will take place on February 17, 2019.
“Ascension Seton is excited to be the title sponsor and Official Medical Provider for the Austin Marathon,” said Adam Bauman, vice president of business development at Ascension Seton. “The Austin Marathon reflects the community’s commitment to be an active and vibrant city, and through our partnership with High Five Events and friends of the Austin community, we are committed to promote, support, and facilitate activities for a healthy lifestyle.”
As the Official Medical Provider, Ascension Seton doctors and nurses will staff the finish line medical tent and work with Travis County EMS on course. During race weekend, Team Ascension Seton will participate in all events, volunteer their time, and have a major presence at the Health and Fitness Expo. Outside of race weekend, their presence will be felt as they get involved with local running clubs and attend community runs. Ascension Seton will raise funds and spread awareness as an Official Austin Gives Miles charity.

“This is a monumental day for the Austin Marathon and we’re thrilled to have Ascension Seton as the title sponsor,” said Jack Murray, co-owner of High Five Events. “Their race-weekend involvement will take the Austin Marathon to another level, but we’re just as eager to support and better the Austin community throughout the rest of the year.”
The Austin Marathon will celebrate its 28th year running in the capital of Texas in 2019. Austin’s flagship running event annually attracts runners from all 50 states and 30+ countries around the world. Having start and finish locations in the heart of downtown Austin puts participants and spectators near all the action and within walking distance of restaurants, hotels, and shops.
