Sponsorship

We invite you to join us as sponsors of a unique Halloween/zombie themed sports marketing opportunity in Michigan - The Traverse City Zombie Run to be held on Saturday, October 28th, 2017. The deadline to get on board as a sponsor is Sunday, October 1st, 2017.

This is a great brand building event that will prominently feature your products and/or services to hundreds of race-day participants and thousands of Michiganders. Your company will be promoted as part of an extensive media and marketing campaign through radio remotes and advertisements, web and online marketing, print exposure, and aggressive marketing from a team of Halloween fans and race enthusiasts.

Last year’s race drew over 1300 participants and dozens of sponsors including breweries, local radio stations, physician groups, and many more. We want this event to become a Northern Michigan tradition as the state kicks off the Halloween season.

Proceeds will be donated to TART Trails (Traverse Area Recreation and Transportation Trails, Inc.) a 501(c)3 non-profit.

About TART:


TART Trails, Inc is a 501(c) 3 non-profit that formed in 1998 when four individual trail groups in the Traverse City area united to create a stronger force for recreation and alternative transportation in northwest Michigan. TART is dedicated to providing recreation and transportation opportunities as well as preserving open space corridors through a network of trails. TART builds trails and advocates for active living and outdoor recreation. Their work includes negotiating easements, hosting annual events that promote healthy lifestyles, and defending cyclist and pedestrian interests.

Sponsorship opportunities range from $250 – $2,000 giving you many affordable options. Please download this enclosed sponsorship packet for details. Donations of any kind are welcomed!

The deadline for major sponsors is September 29, 2017 giving us sufficient time to place your corporate logo on all promised marketing items; official race t-shirts, posters, ads, race bibs, etc.

Please help us create the premier Halloween event of the season.
