Sponsor Opportunities

After a brilliant debut in 2020, offering a safe event on a beautiful course that received universal praise and rave reviews, there is understandable excitement about our return in October 2021. Opportunities exist for your organisation to be involved in this event and benefit from this excitement.

We’re expecting around 500 attendees on race day plus an audience of thousands via social media channels, video shares, runner photos, and targeted advertising.

With a range of costs and benefits, if any of the following opportunities excite you please contact me to discuss: jamesclayevents@hotmail.com / 07882 686084

Sponsor a Toilet! – Speak to any regular racer and they will quickly tell you that the single most important feature of any race is access to a toilet. It may not seem obvious, but being attached to the provision of loos at a race is a very positive association. As such, I am offering the unique opportunity to sponsor individual toilet cubicles at this event, which will definitely get you talked about and remembered!
