DENVER, Sept. 3, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Janus Capital Management (Janus) (NYSE:JNS) today announced its position as title partner of the Janus Rock 'n' Roll Denver Marathon & ½ Marathon. The race will celebrate its five-year anniversary on Oct. 17-19, 2014 with more than 15,000 runners, live bands, cheerleaders and thousands of spectators lining the course.

"Janus is proud to partner with the Rock 'n' Roll Denver Marathon – part the world's largest running series – as its title sponsor for 2014 given our long-held support of endurance sports athletes," said Casey Cortese, VP of Experiential Marketing with Janus. "The drive for performance, commitment to our goals and an enduring dedication to improvement are all important traits we share with the endurance sports community."

Financial advisors and institutional investors who register for the race are encouraged to take part in the Janus Run Club, which offers a whole suite of benefits, including race gear, a Fun Run and race clinic with two-time Olympian Alan Culpepper, and a special meet and greet area for family and friends at the finish festival.

"Our culture of achievement and dedication to always working harder is something we have in common with endurance sports athletes," said Cortese. "We're looking forward to supporting those athletes whose constant discipline and rigorous commitment to their sport mirrors our approach to the investment business."

As title sponsor, Janus will play a prominent role throughout the race day course. Consistent with Janus' differentiated investment approach, the Janus Best Views seating will provide spectators with exceptional views of the elite athletes on course, and the Janus Motivational Mile will help runners achieve peak performance by distributing the needed hydration and nutrition for success.
