Summer is a great time for road races, and if you’re in charge of organizing one of these events, then you’re likely looking for custom flags, inflatables, and much more for the race course. At Impact Canopy, we can supply everything you need for your starting line, course route, and finish line. We have a great selection of flags to choose from, and you can display your organization’s name, logo, or anything else you want people to notice before, during, and after the race.
Very few road races, 10Ks, and half-marathons would happen without plenty of sponsors. Your job may be to secure these sponsorships so that you can provide refreshments, apparel, and other benefits to those who will be running in the race.
When it comes to displaying sponsorship logos, flags can be the way to go. Once you’ve decided on a shape and design for your flags, you can get all of your logo files together and have them printed and ready to go for race day. We offer both single- and double-sided flags, so depending on what you need, you can find the perfect options.
As people are running the race, they begin to think about the finish line and how far it might be until they’re done. They love running, but the finish line is a welcome sight to their eyes. With an inflatable arch, you can make it easy to see the finish and accurately demarcate where the end of the race is. You can put race name and logo on the arch, and as people run underneath it, they’ll know they’ve accomplished something.
Arches can also be a good choice for the beginning of the race, as you can position several of them in a row to keep all the runners in a certain lane or area of the road. For example, if you’ve blocked off half off a major street for the race, you can let everyone know to stay inside the arches as they begin the race.
Signs and Banners
If you want people to show up for your race, then you need to advertise beforehand to generate interest. Custom signs and banners that are posted near where the race will be can catch people’s attention, and a banner hung over the road where the race will start can remind people that the date is quickly approaching. On race day, you can hang a banner welcoming all the runners and sponsors, and you can print up banners for registration tents, refreshment areas, and first aid stations.
At Impact, we’re here to help you find the perfect products for your summer road race. If you’re trying to get sponsors, then let them know that their logo will be prominently displayed on a flag or a banner. If you’re in charge of setting up the finish line, then think about putting up an inflatable arch that can be seen from nearly anywhere on the course.
