How to Organize a Charity Race From Start to Finish

Tip #3:  Consider Sponsorships and Recruit Volunteers

One way to minimize out-of-pocket expenses and maximize the charitable contribution from the event is to seek sponsors for the race. Contacting local organizations and vendors to get donated items like water, energy bars or even gifts for participant swag bags is a great way to involve the community. Sponsorships can also help bring in free press to your race and the companies involved.

Additionally, call on people. “Volunteers are critical to the success of a race,” said Kohler. “You’ll need help. That means people who can coordinate participants, be stationed at check-in points, and ensure athlete safety. It takes a village.”
