5 New Ideas For Your Next 5K

Winning giveaways for all your run/walk events.

5 New Ideas For Your Next 5K
02.03.2019

Running events come in all shapes and sizes - from the Boston Marathon to your local charity 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 jogs as it is over a refined woven shirt at the office.

2. Stay Hydrated

Hydration is crucial - especially for runners. 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-known 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 styles and price points, make ideal giveaways for runners and walkers.

4. It's In The Bag

Drawstring sport packs are favorite 5K giveaways because they are a perfect container for race information, additionalgiveaways and snacks. Plus, participants are left with a useful, reusable gift when race day is over.

5. Bundle Up!

Creating a one-of-a-kind giveaway by combining items from Leed’s and Trimark in a giveaway bundle is an easy (and free!) way to make a big impact at your event. Best of all, the process is easy – there is one order, one invoice and we package the items together for you, all at no additional charge. 

So as you’re selecting giveaways for your spring 5Ks, run/walks and golf outings, consider mixing and matching items like drawstring sportpacks with water bottles and t-shirts insdide. Use these to thank your guests for their participation (and their donations).
