Thank you for your interest in providing sponsorship for the events of the Memphis Runners Track Club (MRTC).
We are a non-profit organization in our 36th year. We were the first running club to be established in Memphis and are the grass roots of running in Memphis and the surrounding areas. We belong to noteworthy national organizations - Road Runners Club of America www.rrca.org and USA Track and Field www.usatf.org.
We are an all-volunteer board and our mission is to promote running in all its many ways, which are road races, established training group runs, track and speed training, children's running programs and races, trail running, women's running programs, and quarterly social events with a running theme.
Our passion is running and our goal is to bring others to a healthier lifestyle though running. Sponsorship of our events provides visibility of your company or product to our over 3600 members. Our website, www.memphisrunners.com receives an average of over 36,000 hits per month.
In addition to the 20+ races that the club puts on for our members each year, we also serve as a finish line timing contractor for some 60 to 80 races annually and provide miscellaneous services and guidance to race directors to make their race a success.
We have seen that the demographics for people who run in these events are very impressive with high education levels and well above average income. These are the people you will reach in promoting your products and services through our Sponsorship Program. We look forward to making this happen! We hope this packet answers any questions you may have and are excited to work with you!
Do not hesitate to contact us with any questions.
* In kind donations: goods and services for which the retail, fair market or purchase value equals the amount in question. All in kind donation requests are subject to approval by Sponsorship Committee and/or the MRTC Board.
A sponsorship donation can be made up of a combination of cash and in-kind donations if applicable.
For the RoadRunner newsletter ads, it is the sponsor's responsibility to give camera-ready artwork of the ad to the editor of the RoadRunner by the 1st of the month preceding the desired publication issue. This deadline should be considered to be firm although the editor occasionally has some latitude depending on the mix of weekdays and other factors.
For t-shirts, banners and other printed or web based marketing, it is the sponsor's responsibility to provide logo, art, or product/service description.
All advertising/marketing opportunities provided by MRTC will be in effect after full sponsorship payment has been received unless specified otherwise in a written agreement.
MRTC does not offer exclusive sponsorship rights under the above mentioned opportunities; however a special arrangement can be discussed with the sponsorship committee and would be taken under consideration by the MRTC board if so desired. A whole new pricing and benefits structure would take effect.
We offer our sponsorships to the community at large on a first come - first served basis. There is no limit to the number of sponsors unless specifically negotiated and agreed upon by the Sponsorship Committee and/or MRTC Board.
MRTC reserves the right of refusal of a sponsorship proposal that may not be an appropriate fit for our organization as determined by the Sponsorship Committee and/or the MRTC Board.
MRTC does NOT release our membership database. However we can reach our members via the RoadRunner newsletter and the occasional broadcast email at our discretion.
