What is a racecation?
We’re glad you asked. Runners like to vacation, relax and have fun just like everyone else – the only difference is they consider running fun (yes, seriously). From that, the racecation was born – a vacation planned around an organized race, usually involving overnight travel and a friend or two.
What is a Goodie Bag?
A Goodie Bag is a way for businesses and brands, like you, to get your products and services in front of runners. Every year millions of runners travel overnight to participate in races with the goal of crossing that finish line. Having trained hard and made sacrifices for months, they don’t want the celebration to end there – they want to make a weekend of it. Our virtual goodie bags are a way to connect your offer with those runners looking to have a good time!
What types of Goodie Bag offers do you promote?
We target offers from local businesses and brands that have a vacation-related component – activities, adventure, sight-seeing, eats, accommodation, etc. We’ve had a free bottle of water with a hiking tour, 20% of golf packages, $1 off coffee purchases, 50% off yoga classes, $20 off helicopter rides – and everything in between. It’s really up to you and what makes sense for your business – show these out-of-town runners what your city has to offer!
Are Goodie Bags only for runners?
Yes and no. We celebrate the culmination of race weekend – this includes the race, location, runners, and even the runner’s support system. Oftentimes it’s these family and friends who have made sacrifices of time and energy along the way in support of a loved one – they’re an important part to the journey that rarely gets credit. And while we encourage offers to be open to runners and their supporters, we understand if you can only provide it for the runner.
How does it work?
Find which races you want to include an offer – this can be all races we promote in a city or just a couple, it’s up to you. Then send us an email at email@example.com outlining the necessary requirements outlined below. We’ll send you a draft Goodie Bag offer for your approval. Once approved, we’ll make it live on our site.
1. Races for which you want to provide an offer
2. A short blurb about your company or brand – about 100 words or less
3. The offer – 20% of product/service, 2-for-1 offer, free product/service with purchase, etc
4. The offer description – any fine print, service description, restrictions, etc
5. Dates the offer is valid – can be as long/short as you’d like, but must be valid the weekend of the race
6. How to claim the offer – promo code, mention ‘runfari’ at checkout, show offer upon arrival, etc.
7. Image – horizontal and shouldn’t contain company logo
8. Contact info – address, phone number, website, facebook/twitter/instagram links
How far in advance do I need to submit the offer?
In general, we like to have offers confirmed a minimum of two weeks prior to the race, but will work with you if that isn’t the case. All offers can be posted up to a year in advance. The longer it’s posted, the more opportunity there is to get in front of runners.
How much does it cost?
All of zero dollars – that’s right. Our standard offers are of no cost to you and will be listed in appropriate Goodie Bags.
What is an Elite offer?
An Elite Goodie Bag item gets you added promotion and will cost you some cash money. Not only will you get a sweet green “Elite” tag on your offer and have it automatically moved into one of the top positions in the Goodie Bag, but we’ll also give you some added love via our social media links and our newsletter.
