Liebherr is a proud sponsor of the Newport News One City Marathon. Newport News has been home to Liebherr for over 50 years and provides a great opportunity for Liebherr employees to get involved with the local community.

“This shows a partnership with the City of Newport News, where we’ve been located for 54 years, which is pretty awesome in itself,” says Vicki Wishon, Director, Human Capital of Liebherr USA, Co.

The One City Marathon spans the length of Newport News offering participants a variety of races to run in including a full marathon, half marathon, maritime 5K, nautical mile, and a multi-race challenge. Liebherr has sponsored this event since 2019 and continues to contribute to community engagement and wellness within the Hampton Roads community.

“We are proud to sponsor and participate in the One City Marathon. It is great to be able to showcase our Liebherr machines to the community,” says Tim Gerhardt, Managing Director of Liebherr USA, Co. “Participating in the races can be rigorous, but very rewarding after you cross the finish line.”
