Lakeland Runners Club Sponsorship Opportunities

A sponsorship with the Lakeland Runners Club is more than just a great promotional opportunity— it is an excellent way to be a participant in a community project to promote health and wellness through running and/or walking.

The Lakeland Runners Club is 100% volunteer-staffed and has proudly produced events in Lakeland since 1974. Race sponsorships allow us to grow our community outreach programs with new runners, elementary and middle school students, and provide weekly group runs for the community and fellowship and educational opportunities for our members.  

Our volunteers will work to ensure that each dollar you contribute is allocated toward creating first-class events for all participants.  Your sponsorship enables us to put on our races, and give back to the community in other ways such as training programs and scholarships. 

Information about our events and community programs, and a market profile are below.

The LRC is an affiliate member of the Road Runners Club of America (RRCA). Through the RRCA, we are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
