Bupa will be continuing its sponsorship of the Bupa Great Run series until 2009. The sponsorship extension makes it one of the longest running sports sponsorship deals in the country.
The series is made up of five main events: the Bupa Great Edinburgh Run, the Bupa Great Manchester Run, the Bupa Great Capital Run, the Bupa Great North Run, and the Bupa Great South Run.
Bupa's nominated charity for the 2007 Great Runs will again be Marie Curie Cancer Care.
The Bupa Great Capital Run is in aid of Help a London Child.
