Long Live The "Tesco London Marathon"
Flora, well their parent company Unilever, have decided not to be involved in the London marathon in 2009 and the front runner to take the mantle at the moment is Tesco.
Is this a good or bad thing?
Will you be able to get "value runners"
Will the elites have to run in blue and white stripes?
Maybe, 118 118
Dave Bedford would love that
well, leans over to whisper ....................................... it's a bit of insider knowledge Meldy,(gossip)
I massaged this guy at the Expo from the marketing dept at Unilever and he told me. It sounded genuine.
Unilever (Flora) are pulling out, he Tesco bit is still under discussion, but he said they were the frontrunners to take over the mantle.
you have too much time on your hands
I didn't ask him (yes, I do feel a bit silly not enquiring)
flora have reached the end of their contract - i thought that was general knowledge - they mentioned it on the radio earlier this week
london pride are already sponsors
Are you sure.. on the blurb for 2009 it definitely says Flora London Marathon 2009
Maybe Tesco are interested after the Flora sponsorship deals runs out...
Gillette sponsored it previously.. who else has..?
