Your sponsorship helps defray the cost of organizing the event and invites you to become involved in the event itself. We are limiting our initial run to 100 solo runners and 50 teams. When considering support crew and volunteers, this would likely mean upwards of 800 – 1000 people over the duration of the weekend. There are several options for sponsorship. The most common is direct funding which is valuable to offset costs. Other more involved options include sponsoring a transition station.
There are 5 transition stations as well as the finish option. These locations provide respite for the runners. Liquids, food, timing, encouragement form the basics. You can promote your business at the same time, wear company swag, provide music…be creative. If this interests you, we will provide details.
Another option is to sponsor a leg of the race. There are 6 legs in total ranging from 20 to 31 km…Again, your business can be highlighted, add music, encouragement, spirit…only limit is your imagination. Sponsoring in kind is also highly appreciated. We will be providing a pre and post banquet to all participants and volunteers. We need starting and finish banners as well as directional signs.
Tents, generators, tables, chairs, sound system, prizes, awards, drinks, snacks, coffee, first aid, lighting, swag(1), Race Expo(2), posters and water are some of the items we need to host this event. Products and or services provided for to the event at no cost or discounted cost for the purposes of event operation will be valued at retail cost to determine the level of sponsorship. This EXCLUDES DOOR PRIZES or RACE PACKET INSERTS.
Whichever option you choose, there are several levels of sponsorship available for the Hidden Oasis 100.
