Sixth Annual Downtown Willoughby 5k

Sun September 16, 2018 Willoughby, OH US 44094 Directions

Be Part of the Downtown Willoughby 5k

Downtown Willoughby is an amazing community of good people, great shops, outstanding restaurants, and loyal residents that can't get enough of the city. Sponsoring the Downtown Willoughby 5k is a great way to connect with the community and race participants.

In the past five years, we've raised $116,000 for Make-A-Wish® Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, while thousands of runners and walkers participated in the event. This year, we will have 2,000 participants. Our runners are highly engaged with posts and updates on Facebook. The community lines the race course to support runners and walkers. The feedback has been amazing each year. We'd love to have you be part of the 2018 Downtown Willoughby 5k.

All sponsorships opportunities include the following:

  • Your logo and website link on the Downtown Willoughby 5k website.
  • Your logo and website link in all email distributions and updates
  • Your name on the official race t-shirt
  • Post on the Downtown Willoughby 5k Facebook Page
  • Half-page ad (5.5" x 4.25") in the Downtown Willoughby 5k race booklet distributed to every participant
  • The sooner you secure your sponsorship, the greater exposure you'll get.

We pass out markers and poster board to spectators up and down Erie Street for making signs (and keeping kids occupied while their slow parents run). Your logo will be added to all signs. See your company name on signs up and down the street, plus in race photos. Approximately 150-200 will be passed out.

Water Stop
