The Seattle Marathon Association would like to thank all of our new and returning sponsors for the Seattle Marathon family of events.

OFFICIAL WATER SPONSOR FOR THE AMICA INSURANCE SEATTLE MARATHON
An iconic brand in the Seattle-area for more than 30 years, Talking Rain is a Washington-based beverage company
situated in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains. This innovative company is outselling global brands in
flavor-categories across the U.S., while beginning to find success internationally with the brand’s bold-flavored,
lightly carbonated sparkling water.
A part of the Talking Rain product portfolio for over 25 years, Sparkling Ice beverages were often overlooked, until a major organizational shift in 2010 where the new leadership team refocused the company’s efforts on this diamond in the rough. At that time, Talking Rain started to build a strong marketing, sales and manufacturing team to focus efforts on this flavored, zero-calorie carbonated beverage, which was quietly building a strong following in the Northwest since entering the marketplace.
Since 2011, this strategic focus on Sparkling Ice has ignited the brand, resulting in 5900% sales growth from 2010-2015, and surpassing $650 million in sales that same year.
