ING to end New York Marathon run

Financial services company ING will end its title sponsorship of the New York Marathon after this year’s race.

ING informed event organiser New York Road Runners of its plans to end a partnership that has run since 2003 last week, according to SportsBusiness Journal.

New York Road Runners is now in talks with several prospective naming rights sponsors, while also attempting to establish as many as five founding partners that would benefit from a high-visibility association with the race.

The 2013 New York Marathon takes place on November 3.
