DFWRUNS Can Manage Events to Build Your Brand Too

Thursday, March 8, 2012

On February 25th, DFWRUNS staff were in rare form at 4am as we awoke and headed to One Arts Plaza. We were wired on Community Coffee and ready to ensure sponsor tents were in place, streets were clear, zones properly barricaded, and medals were polished. By six o’clock the dim light of the race day sun below the Dallas skyline prepared to set the Wyly Theater, the W, and Fountain Place aglow. But not before 1,000 bright green race shirts began emerging from the darkness seemingly illuminating the plaza. These runners and walkers eager to experience the inaugural Form Follows Fitness 5K on a course never run through downtown before!

We had live music, food and drinks lined up to welcome and to later congratulate participants. The diverse crowd was made up of novices and beginners, architecture firms, interior design companies, construction, printing, and manufacturing companies too! Though we love to brag about our race directing skills as much as Art Vandelay would of his amazing work, we admit this event was structured upon a strong foundation through the sponsorships and donations of these firms. And as long as we’re tooting horns, check out the winners of our cool Team Awards!
