We recognize our sponsors in a variety of ways, including on our website, on banners, at the Center, on promotional materials, and more, depending on the sponsorship level. Our race appeals to people from all walks of life, but our core running participants are in the 30-46 age bracket, are highly active sports enthusiasts, are technically savvy, and represent a financially healthy demographic.
