Mercedes Marathon Breaks Clutch! Reservations Record During Eventful Start to 2019
Clutch! Completes First Super Bowl Appearance and a Record-Breaking Week of Marathon Reservations
Clutch! has partnered with the Mercedes Marathon – an annual series of races and events taking place this weekend at Railroad Park. The app has sold over 850 parking spaces for the race so far, surpassing the app’s previously held record for most reservations sold for a single event.
Given the popularity of the Mercedes Marathon and the significant demand for reserved parking spots, the app’s inventory sold out twice within days. New spots have been added, so any runners in the Regions 5K or Kids Marathon on Saturday and the Mercedes Marathon on Sunday can still reserve their spot.
“We are extremely grateful to the Mercedes Marathon committee for supporting Clutch! as their official parking partner this weekend,” Daniel Almond, Director of Business Development at Clutch!, said. “The running community and this event continue to exceed our expectations as we have already shattered our previously held record for reservations four days ahead of the actual event.”
Over 800 Spots Sold and Counting for the Mercedes Marathon – But There’s Still Spots Left!
The Mercedes Marathon will host a Regions 5K, a kids marathon, a half marathon, and a full marathon throughout this upcoming weekend. Clutch! will provide parking for the entire weekend. Yes – this means you can park with Clutch! two days in a row!
With these lots filling up fast, there is little time to secure your space! If you plan to attend the Mercedes Marathon and don’t want to wear yourself out walking to the starting line, reserve your spot today! Each spot on the app is no more than an eight minute walk to the race.
Not sure which lot to choose? All of the lots provided for Mercedes Marathon are extremely convenient. However, “Bailey’s Corner” is one you won’t want to miss. This lot guarantees you’ll be able to find your spot quickly, spend no longer than 5 minutes walking and that your car will be in a well-lit area. Bailey’s Corner Gas Station is surprisingly spacious compared to other service stations and holds a huge sign that reads “Bailey’s Corner” so you can’t miss your destination.
Super Bowl LIII and a Growing Atlanta Presence
This massive Mercedes Marathon Weekend comes off the heels of the Clutch! team‘s greatest adventure yet – Super Bowl LIII. Clutch! offered parking at several different lots in Atlanta, Georgia, all within 0.7 miles of Mercedes-Benz stadium. Parking spots ranged from $200 tailgating lots to bus and RV parking. While the Patriots and Rams’ offense left something to be desired (resulting in the lowest scoring Super Bowl game of all-time), the pre-game parking experience was an important victory for Clutch!
“To have a presence at the biggest sporting event in America is a huge win for us at Clutch!” Almond said. “We aspire to be fans’ go-to for gameday parking and look forward to continuing to expand our reach throughout the U.S. especially wherever parking is in high demand.”
Clutch! plans to return to Mercedes-Benz Stadium in the fall for Atlanta Falcons games and the much-anticipated SEC Championship. As football season comes to a close, keep an eye out for Clutch! as the team preps for soccer and minor league baseball season not only in the southeast but across the country! Almond even led a seminar about “Redefining Your Fan’s Gameday Experience” at the Ticket Forum in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Ticket Forum: Redefining Your Fan’s Parking Experience
“Ticket Forum was a phenomenal experience where we got to connect and network with various sports organizations across the nation along with spreading the word about Clutch!,” Almond said. “We were also grateful for the opportunity to lead a session about redefining the way organizations think about parking especially in this new digital age.”
