- Running is a highly visible, upscale activity. Our road race is one of the few major community festivals of the year, with thousands in attendance and heavy media coverage. Runners are enthusiastic, outgoing, involved people, with an interest in health, fitness, appearance and self-improvement.
- Our runners range in age from 3-70. The average age in the 5K is 34; average age in the 10K is 39.
It doesn't matter what kind of support you can provide - monetary contribution
or in-kind donations - it all helps create an event that runners remember
and keep coming back to year after year. All our sponsors are recognized
for several months leading up to race day, during the day, and in any
post-race communications with the runners.
