5K Fundraising

5K road races are a popular fundraiser for many non-profit organizations. Except for the coldest and hottest months in your area, you can often find several 5Ks each weekend in your area.

They are a great way to engage with the community and have local businesses support your organization.

With so many race options for runners to choose from, it helps if your race has a way to stand out from the others.

Offering a finisher’s medal for first time 5K runners is a great way to stand out from the crowd. But ordering hundreds of finisher’s medals is expensive.

The My First 5K medal is a great way to offer a medal, be unique and increase your event’s fundraising.

How does the My First 5K Medal work?

  • Add the My First 5K Medal as a registration or merchandise option
  • You collect $9.95 for each medal sold or ask for a higher donation
  • We send you the number of medals and bib stickers your runners ordered
  • Add the medal to the race packet for first time runners for easy race-day pickup
  • After your race, send $5.95 to Omni Running for each medal sold

Including the medal as a registration option makes it an easy add-on. But unlike shirts, mugs or glasses, you do not have to buy product and hope to sell all of it.

When included as a registration add-on item, usually 6% of registrations include a medal.

If your event is for a school or other youth organization, your sales may be higher.

5K Fundraising for Clubs

It’s also a great way for clubs or company running groups to celebrate and encourage new runners. If the club or company event is also a fundraiser the My First 5K medal is a great way to enhance your fundraising.

If your race wants to award the medals at the finish line, the red bib sticker helps volunteers identify each runner who is getting a medal.

Most races find it easier to have an awards ceremony after the race or give the medal to the parents and have them award it to their child.

We take the risk out and put the profit in to offering medals

Awarding a finisher’s medal to everyone is expensive and it is a challenge to order the right amount of medals.

When medals are purchased during registration, you can eliminate that issue.

Increase fundraising: Offering a medal for first time runners is an excellent way to increase your registrations and adds $4.00 in profit to each of these registrations.
