Become a Sponsor
The Allscripts Tobacco Road Marathon and the GNC Tobacco Road Half-Marathon, presented by Inside-Out Sports offer sponsors tremendous value in terms of exposure and public relations. This is especially true in 2015 when, after just five years since our founding in 2010, we will pass the milestone of one half million dollars - $500,000 - to our world class charities.
Your support of this ongoing effort from an all-volunteer organization aids in our goal of contributing 100 percent of proceeds to our charities. This puts you in excellent company, not just with the benefactors but with a host of sponsors working for great causes.
Our growing event attracted a record number of participants in 2014 with over 4,500 runners. Consider that our typical runner is cheered on by a support team of friends and family and the race day crowd swells to some 12,000 onlookers. Runners are fiercely loyal to the companies that support their passion; putting your brand before them will be noticed.
We stay in touch with our community throughout the year too. Our "opt-in" database of e-mail addresses now exceeds 13,000 people and we add to it every day. We have well over 3,000 Facebook followers and our recently launched Twitter feed connecting with influencers throughout the running community.
The attached slide presentation has additional details about the race. You'll find video and web site links so you can share, should you wish to brainstorm with your colleagues about the sponsorship opportunties with the Tobacco Road Marathon team.
