We plan on advertising the 5k run in places or networks that would interest families. This event also features live entertainment considering local spectators. The various organizations we are benefiting from will utilize their donor base in order to support this event. There will be fliers at all the local stores within a certain radius. There will be posts on details concerning this event on social media pages. Had conversations with landlords along traffic routes in order to gain permission to put a banner on their property.
We listed the 5k run on every online race calendar you can find. This helped in recruiting runners directly and signing them up accordingly. Local news establishments are always in search for local events to cover. We made use of the opportunity by submitting a press release about the event.
However, when we choose to advertise the 5k run, it was important that we kept our audience in mind. Providing all necessary information and being brief about the purpose and details of the event.
Our message exciting and easy for potential race participants to act upon. There is a proficient registration service in place to assist with ease of signing up and tracking participants.
