The Tasmanian Running Festival provides a rare opportunity to secure naming rights of this celebrated event and home to the high profile Launceston 10k – Australia’s fastest 10k course which attracts a leading field of Australian elite athletes looking to battle it out for the prestigious title plus the event also sees the opportunity for the everyday athlete to achieve a personal best on Australia’s flattest course.

In addition, the festival consists of a 2k kids race and a 5k run allowing for those of all abilities interested in health and fitness to participate. The event attracts runners from local, intra-state and interstate and the event has strong support from Events Tasmania, the Tasmanian Government and the City of Launceston, and from media partnerships with LAFM and The Examiner newspaper.

In 2017, Pont3, organisers of the Blackmores Sydney Running Festival and other leading mass participation events, purchased the rights to the Tasmanian Running Festival and will continue to build on the success of the 2017 event to further increase participation, supporter numbers and aligned partners.

In addition to the prestigious naming rights opportunity, the event has exclusive category sponsorship opportunities for local and national brands looking to align with this high profile event providing great brand visibility and a variety of opportunities for consumer engagement. The event also provides a great opportunity for event partners to engage staff members and support their health and wellbeing objectives with the provision of complimentary entry into the race.

Our team will work with you to create a sponsorship package that best looks to deliver on your brand objectives providing exposure across a dedicated marketing campaign, through digital and social media channels, plus pre event and event day signage and experiential presence.
