Want Salt Lake Running Co. to sponsor your event? Here is what you need to know:
We LOVE to sponsor local races! The size of your event will determine what exactly we can provide and what we expect in return. The following are examples of donations which are possible, and examples of how races use our sponsorship. No two events are the same, all donations are subject to availability.
What SLRC can provide for sponsorship’s
- All donation requests need to be made at least two weeks in advance.
- SLRC can donate items (shoes, clothing, gift certificates etc) depending on the number of participants.
- SLRC does not give cash donations to races/events or organizations
- We can no longer donate bibs.
- We have a “no poster” policy in our stores, but we can put fliers in all three of our locations, post your event on our online race calendar, mention your event in an e-mail blast, give entries to your event away on Facebook, tweet about your event, or even blog about it. These services are also dependent on the number of participants.
- We always love hosting packet pick-ups at our 700 East location. There we have a large conference room (1250 sq. ft) which hosts pick-ups quite nicely. Room reservations are necessary at least 30 days in advance and requires a contract and a $5oo refundable deposit. The more notice you give, the more likely we will have the room available for you. Races hosting packet pick-up in our stores will receive more benefits.
What you can provide SLRC in exchange for our sponsorship
- Free entries into the event for our staff members or customers. This is highly suggested and required for all races asking for in-store promotion opportunities.
- Place our store logo in prominent places such as online, at the race, on T-shirts, banners etc.
- Place our flier in your event race bag.
- Mention us during pre and post-race announcements.
- Offer our training programs and plans to your participants.
- SLRC has access to Chronotrack timing equipment for $1200 minimum fee per event/race and can assist you in finding a local race management company.
- SLRC also has a timing clock to rent for $100, 7 days.
