Partnership Opportunities

Event partners are extremely important to our series. Contributions keep entry fees manageable and help offer numerous perks to event participants. Partnership money offsets the cost of race operations and communication including; our professional timing system, use of the facility and grounds at Morcom Aquatic Center, event promotion and marketing, participant awards, and logistical costs for each of our post-race celebrations.  Additionally, sponsored donations allow us to hold pre-race training clinics and provide school grants. Each year, we look forward to promoting and celebrating our team of community partners, because without them, we could not provide this experience!

In-Kind Donations: We love partnering with organizations whose donations of products and services offset the cost of race operations. For these in-kind donations, the contribution’s value will determine the appropriate partnership level. A combination of in-kind services and a cash donation is also feasible. However, to allow for adequate event planning (i.e. covering race insurance and emergency management; as well as advance payment for facility rental, gear, and timing; and for ordering t-shirts and promotional items) a portion of the PRESENTING or GOLD partnership levels must be monetary in nature.

For more information, please contact our race directors at info@TallahasseeYTS.com.  Information and event photos can also be found on our website (www.TallahasseeYTS.com) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/TallahasseeYTS).

Thank you for your support!
