Big Impact Outfitter of the Marine Corps Marathon

Since 2023, Recover has served as the proud exclusive apparel and merchandise partner of the Marine Corps Marathon Organization's year-round family of events. Known as the “The People’s Marathon”, the iconic Marine Corps Marathon has a long history of steadfast leadership across all aspects of their operatives including the role as a leading force in the sustainable event industry. MCM initially sought out Recover for this prestigious partnership due to our long history of delivering high quality, low waste apparel for participant shirts, event merchandise, and more while also taping into Recover’s 360° Closed Loop Program to further drive home a fully circular apparel program.

“Recover is on a mission to deliver athletic wear which fully satisfies the comfort,
performance and appearance expectations of the most discerning runner, while pioneering innovative sourcing and manufacturing practices that demonstrate a peerless commitment to principles-based leadership,” stated Alex Hetherington, director at Marine Corps Marathon Organization.

Recover and MCM continue to align on multi-channel activations leading up to, during and after each of their five events throughout the year including a robust line of In-Training gear, a comprehensive assortment of expo merchandise, exclusive Runner’s Club designs, and Finisher Shirts all made of 100% recycled or organic materials and 100% recyclable through our 360° Closed Loop program.
