How can Omni Running Help with 5K Fundraising?
Every 5K has first time runners. For them, your race is the most important race of their life.
Now you can offer a medal for first time 5K runners, without the expense of providing a finisher’s medal to all of your runners.
My First 5K Medal
Offering the My First 5K medal as a registration item allows a parent to get a medal for their first time runner.
The example above shows how one race promoted the medal on their web site. The medal isn’t just for the kids. Any first time runner would be excited to receive one.
Including the medal on your registration typically results in 6% of runners buying a medal.
Races that are family or youth oriented will have higher participation.
A photo on the registration page and other marketing materials will increase your fundraising.
Here is how the My First 5K Medal works:
- Place the My First 5K Medal on your registration as an option
- When selected, a fee of $9.95 is added to the registration total
- Your organization keeps $4.00 for each medal
- We send to you a medal and bib sticker for each runner who orders one
- You do not need to collect money, design or budget for medals
- After your race, remit $5.95 to Omni Running for each medal sold
We take the risk out and put the profit in to offering medals
Most races end up with left-over items such as shirts and yes, medals. Our program lets you avoid this problem, offer something special and increase your fundraising.
- No upfront costs
- Never loose money on left over medals
- No design or ordering headaches
- Increased 5K fundraising
No upfront costs: Runners pay for the medals at registration, you pay Omni Running after your race.
Always the right number of medals: Omni Running provides the medals you need. You never loose money on expensive left overs, or have disappointed runners.
High quality medals: These custom 2″ medals are similar to a marathon medal.
Attract additional runners: Most 5K races no longer offer a finisher’s medal. Offering a medal is an excellent way to promote your race and attract first time runners and parents.
Increase fundraising: Unlike t-shirts and pint glasses, there are no up-front costs to your race. Your race will make 100% profit on each finishers medal sold with no risk!
Offer something that every first time 5K runner wants and avoid an expense and headache.
