Big Impact Outfitter of the Marine Corps Marathon

In 2023, Recover served as the proud and exclusive apparel and merchandise partner of the iconic Marine Corps Marathon. “The People’s Marathon” which is overseen by the Marine Corps Marathon Organization has a long history of steadfast leadership across all aspects of their operatives including the role as a leading force in sustainable event management industry. MCM sought out Recover for this prestigious partnership due to our long history of delivering high quality, low waste apparel in addition to the ability to tap 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.

Leading up to, during, and beyond the race weekend Recover and MCM aligned on a multi-channel activation that included a robust line of In-Training gear, a comprehensive assortment of expo merchandise, and an Exclusive Finisher Shirt with a 360’ Closed Loop theme.

We look forward to expanding the partnership to MCMO’s year-round family of events to further reinforce the collective commitment of leading by example.
