Houston locals run and walk for community beautification
May 10, 2012 by Mark
On Saturday, June 2nd, one of Houston, Texas’s most popular five kilometer runs will take place at Marmion Park in Historic Heights. This year marks 27 events in the history of the run and will feature not only a traditional 5k, but also a run for kids and a 5k walk. Those who wish to attend but don’t like to run or walk can enjoy entertainment, refreshments, and door prizes instead. By registering before May 28th, registrants for the race can save $5 off the $30 adult admission fee and $20 children admission fee. Proceeds of the raise benefit the Houston Heights Association; a non-profit organization that promotes beautification, restoration, education, and maintenance for the community.
Local business owners and event hosts can reach this audience of volunteers and athletes by contacting local print companies to create custom postcards, business cards, handouts, and flyers to distribute as runners and spectators wander through the park. Vendors at the run should also look to make a good first impression through banner printing to decorate their booth. If your booth is representing a local restaurant or other business in the area, printed materials that can be passed on to passers-by are a great way to get foot traffic into your establishment.
By printing coupons or other offers onto flyers and distributing them at the race, local businesses have a better chance of their audience hanging on to their printed materials. Printed flyers, brochures, and other handouts should also include a website address, phone number, or email address so readers can easily learn more about your business or event.
