Be Part of the 2018 Leprechaun Dash 5k
Sponsoring the Leprechaun Dash 5k is a great way to connect with the community and race participants.

The sooner you secure your sponsorship, the greater exposure you'll get. Some of our sponsorship opportunities include the following, but we're always open to your ideas as well.
The Leprechaun Dash 5K presenting sponsor will have their businesses name forever linked to the 2018 Leprechaun Dash Event. All communications, social media posts, and print advertisements will feature your business. The presenting sponsor will have the ability to have an on site presence before, during, and after the race and will receive name recognition throughout announcements. The presenting sponsor will also get a dedicated social media post with a call to action for participants to visit your business. Your logo will also be prominently featured on the race shirt and on the finish results display which get shared on social media by many of the runners
Kid's Race Sponsor
Link your business to the kids race at the 2018 Leprechaun Dash. Last year we had nearly 75 kids take part in the race and our hope is that this year is even bigger! As the kid's race sponsor you will receive name recognition at the kids race.
Your logo will be watermarked on every photo. Race participants share their photos on social media often, so this is a huge opportunity for long-term exposure even after the race.
Green Pilsner Cup
The Leprechaun Dash and up to 2 sponsors logos will be included on a green Pilsner Cup to be given away to all race participants.
An eco-friendly tote bag is given to every participant on packet pickup day. You'll see these bags blanket the city around race time, but you'll also see them throughout the year at grocery stores, at the beach, and anywhere else people tote stuff in awesome bags. Up to 3 sponsors' logos will be included on the bags, along with the race logo.
Finish line water bottles
Volunteers will hand off a bottle of water to every finisher as they exit the finish line area. Sponsor the bottled water and your logo will appear on a sign at the finish and you will receive recognition during pre-race communications.
3 signs will be on the course marking every mile. The race logo and your full color company logo will be shown with the mileage.
Water Stop Sponsor
Sponsor thirsty runners at the 1.5 mile mark, staffed by volunteers. Your logo will appear on a large sign at the water stop table and you will be mentioned in our pre-race communications.
Other Sponsorship Opportunities
The goal of the Leprechaun Dash is to have a great time, enjoy our community, and provide an excellent value to our runners. We will post and email offers from our sponsors exclusively for our registered runners. For instance, "Leprechaun Dash runners can take 10% off their bill this Thursday."
Free with any sponsorship above, but must provide a real value to our runners
