DONATIONS & SPONSORSHIPS

Net proceeds from our June 16, 2018  event will benefit long-term infrastructure improvements at the century-old, community-focussed, non-profit, Millarville Racing & Agricultural Society.  Our event-specific goals are to support local agricultural producers through raised awareness of our Farmers’ Market as well as promote health & wellness and volunteerism in our rural community.

Both donations and sponsorships, including goods and services, are welcomed and appreciated.

Recognition for sponsorships can include social media brand recognition, brochures/pamphets in our race packages, banners and/or displays at the Farmers’ Market finish line, website logo’s clickable through to your site, naming rights for aspects of our race and/or any custom ideas you might request.

We would love to talk to you.

DEMOGRAPHICS

For June 16, 2018, we anticipate 1,100 overall, combined registrations, for the half marathon, 2-person half marathon relay, the COBS Cinnamon Bun Run 8-Miler and the 3KM Family Cross-Country Fun Run/Walk.

Our surveys indicate the average participant brings another 1.5 spectators to the Millarville Farmers’ Market finish line. Additionally, the average, non-race related, opening day attendance at the Farmers’ Market is about 1,500. So, roughly 4,000-4,500 at the Racetrack on race day.

For the last four years, registrations for our event have averaged 72% female. Thirty-two percent of our registrations are between the ages of 30-39, another 27% are between the ages of 40-49 and 19% are between the ages of 50-59. About 56% of our registrations are from Calgary with the rest from the local area. We also have large contingents from Edmonton, Lethbridge, Red Deer, Airdrie, and Medicine Hat.

A recent Running USA survey found that, on average, 68.5% of half marathoners are married, 92.1% have a college education and 60.2% have an income greater than $100,000. Half marathon is the fastest growing distance event in North America and there are now more Half Marathon finishers than 10 KM finishers.
