Partnerships in the Community and with Race Events

The Heart and Soles Run also partners with other community events that include run/fitness/health/sporting related events, community fundraisers, and many other similar programs.  We can offer a no-dollar cost, cross-promotion of your event in our social media, email and other electronic based marketing channels with groups, businesses, and organizations.  We offer the opportunity to trade vendor space at our venues in reciprocation for space at other events.

If you are interested in cross-promoting your event or race, please contact Chris Weiler at [email protected]
