This race is a fundraiser for the Key West HS running programs. Travel expenses have spiraled out of control. Last year's race sent the Cross Country team to the largest and most prestigious invitational race in Florida. PLEASE help out these hard-working young athletes by supporting this event.
The Duval Street Mile will bring more than 200 local runners and their friends/families into the heart of Key West. If you're on Duval, those 200+ people will run right by you. Everyone will be a festive mood. Be part of it!
How can you get in on it? Easy and painless.
1. ENTER A TEAM!! The race has something that most races don't: a team competition. Three (3) runners make up your squad. Catchy names and colorful uniforms are encouraged! All 3 run the full mile and the places they finish equals their score (low score wins). Display your name and logo with pride in the race and in the post-race festivities. Let everyone know you were there! $60 covers all three runners, a true bargain in these days of $35 individual entry fees and $90 half-marathons. Prizes will be given in 8 different categories, plus a special prize to the first Duval Street team.
2. Donate Gift Certificates! Bring the runners back to you! Everyone loves a GC: 2-4-1, half-price, free drink, buy-1-get-1, $25 or more. We'll give 'em out as raffle prizes or awards, and they will come runnin' your way.
3. Get your logo on the race T-shirt! And on our website and a big Like on our Facebook event page, too!. Our sponsorship rates are very reasonable because we want everyone on Duval to be part of this. $250 gets you all of that, plus a team entry. (We need to have your logo by March 31st to get you on the shirt.) Check out some options on the Sponsor Info PDF.
Our race will be advertised:
> To all members of the Key West Southernmost Runners
> In the South Florida Runners Forum (circulation 16,000)
> On the Conch Republic Independence Celebration web site
> On Conch Radio
> On posters all around town -- please post one proudly!
Thank you in advance. This is going to be a great event, and you'll be happy you got in on it.
