Dole will sponsor the Big Sur International Marathon on April 28 in Monterey, Calif.

As a gold sponsor, Dole will provide its products, salad blends, fresh fruit and packaged foods, at the pre-race dinner and in the VIP and volunteer tents.

The sold-out race follows Highway One from Big Sur, Calif., to Carmel, Calif.

“Dole is honored to support one of the nation’s premier destination marathons with a course that is within miles of the fields where much of our lettuce, produce and berries are grown,” Chris Mayhew, vice president of marketing for Dole Fresh Vegetables, said in a news release. “Consistent with Dole’s commitment to total health and wellness, the event supports a number of local and national charities.”
