Running events come in all shapes and sizes - from the Boston Marathon to your local fundraiser run/walk. Regardless of size, these events usually have some type of giveaway component. The giveaways are used to encourage participant sign ups, promote a cause and drive further visibility for the event.
Here are 5 giveaways to help your event stay ahead of the competition:
1. Versatile Apparel That Performs
Think versatility here. Thanks to a snag-resistant jersey knit and a moisture wicking finish, the Taza Knit Quarter Zip is ready for both workouts and weekends. Event participants will welcome a piece that's as comfortable on cool morning jog as its is over a refined woven shirt at the office.

2. Stay Hydrated
Hydration is crucial - especially for runner. The latest guidelines from the National Academy of Medicine recommend that most women consume about 91 ounces—that’s actually about 9 cups of total water a day. Men need a bit more; about 125 ounces (or 13 cups) a day. Race participants will be thrilled to receive a durable Tritan™ water bottle from a well-know retail brand like CamelBak.

3. Tunes On The Go
Fact: Athletes love headphones. According to Ben Arnold, industry analyst at research firm NPD Group, nearly two-thirds of headphone users exercise while using their headphones. Bluetooth earbuds, available in a wide range of price points, make perfect giveaways for runners and walkers.

4. It's In The Bag
Drawstring sport packs are ideal 5K giveaways because they are a perfect container for race information and other giveaways and snacks. Plus, participants are left with a practical gift when race day is over.
