The race is 23 days away and the sponsorships just keep coming. I think it’s important for runners to realize that there is a reason the sponsors want to be part of the Water To Wine 5K Vineyard Run…it’s going to be a great event that will put you in a great mood and sponsors want to be part of that warm and fuzzy feeling. This is not your normal 5K. We are offering more than you normally get at a 5K in perks and in venue. That is one reason that I think our next sponsor has decided to jump in as a Gold Sponsor. Continue reading Sponsorships Keep Coming
We are getting down to the wire now on these sponsorships. The race is only 24 days away so now is the time to act if you want in. One local business that I am extremely excited has decided to jump in and become a sponsor is Twine Market & Design. Some sponsors are important because they agree to bring waters or prizes to the race and those are so appreciated. Other sponsors, like Twine Market & Design are important because they are going to make Run Richmond look good. Continue reading Twine Market & Design Party In The Barn!
You know that warm fuzzy feeling you get when you realize that you are needed? Doesn’t it feel amazing to know that your presence, expertise, or even emotional support is important to someone else? We all desire to be wanted and needed. It’s human nature. We are designed to need companionship. We accomplish goals better as a team than as an individual. So if feeling needed is something that you desire than let me tell you right now that Run Richmond needs you. Continue reading RUNNERS (and walkers) NEEDED!
I know I have been talking about this contest to win free registrations to join the Run Richmond Tough Mudder Team for a while. We are getting really close at this point. I promise! We are stalling because we have decided to include our sponsors from the Water To Wine 5K Vineyard Run in the fun for the contest. The great part is that our sponsors are excited about the contest. The bad part is we keep getting more sponsors and each time we do we have to finalize more details before we can move on to the contest. My goal is to finalize the sponsors that will be included in the contest this week. If that can happen early in the week then we will have the contest this week. If not until the end of the week the contest will be next week. Continue reading Tough Mudder Contest Update and other bits of info…
We have another great Gold Level Sponsor to introduce today. We had been discussing during one of our group runs how we wanted to find a way to show people how amazing Chenault Vineyards is going to be as a venue for a race. We can tell people that it is going to be one of the prettiest races you will ever run, but people expect race directors to say that. Even though the statement is completely true I don’t feel like as race directors we have a lot of credibility on that statement. So we thought it would be better if we could go out and just take a bunch of photos to show you all the scenic landscapes you will experience during your 3.1 miles. It turns out there is an even better way to do this and it is made possible by our next sponsor. Continue reading If It’s Water To Wine Why Does Run Richmond Keep Talking About Gin?
Time to make another sponsorship announcement. Our newest Gold level sponsor is Soft Shoe and this is a match made in heaven. There isn’t much that runners love more than shoes and Soft Shoe is the best place to get them here in Richmond. The guys at Soft Shoe not only carry the big name brands like Brooks and Adidas, but when new running shoes become popular like HOKA One you can count on them to have those as well. Continue reading The Perfect Partnership – Soft Shoe and a Run Richmond
Yesterday I got the ball rolling by announcing McDonald’s sponsorship of our race and the partnership we have had with them over the last year. I am excited about that partnership because they have been so good to us from the beginning. Today I get to make the announcement of another Gold Level Sponsor that I am just as excited about, but for different reasons. Continue reading Get Fit for the Water To Wine 5K Vineyard Run
It is time to start giving some sponsorship announcements for the Water to Wine 5K Vineyard Run! The way Run Richmond has chosen to do our races makes it essential that we have great sponsors and so far that has worked out well. When we do events we don’t keep a bunch of money to use for the next event. We don’t even keep a bunch of money to pay ourselves for the time and energy it takes to make these events work. We give nearly everything we make from our events directly to the charities that we have chosen to partner with on our events. Continue reading Water To Wine – Sponsorship Announcement
I have been saying since week one of registrations for the Water To Wine 5K Vineyard Run that this race was different. I have also been saying that the energy behind it is something pretty special. Now I have proof. Our “little” run and party at Chenault Vineyards has gotten the attention of some of the folks at Fox 56. They agree this a cool new event. They love that we are doing something to support and help build up the running community in Central KY, but also that we are doing it in a way that partners with outstanding charities to help fund them.
