Why Sponsor a TCR Production?
Demographics. Runner demographics for the last five years show that the number of people participating in the sport and activity of running is growing. Renewed calls for a fitter society have increased interest in running from a broad segment of the population.
Race participants are some of the most fit people in the United States. Aligning your organization with a TCR Production reinforces your brand as dynamic,
modern, innovative and driven. Additionally, sponsoring a TCR Production will generate tremendous brand loyalty from race participants. According to USA Running, 86 percent of runners surveyed indicated they are more likely to purchase a sponsor’s product than a non-sponsor’s competing product.
Who are the Participants in Running Events?
While vigorously protecting participant privacy, TCR Race Productions keeps meticulous records that provide current regional demographic profiles. Nationally, Runner’s World magazine has been surveying its subscribers and
publishing comprehensive runner demographics for the last twenty years.
