Virtual Race Packet FAQ’s

Click Here to View the Current Virtual Packet

Why go virtual instead of an actual goodie bag?

The virtual race packet has many benefits: it gets the information out to more people, helps the advertising businesses save on cost, and reduces waste.

In the past, the only people that took physical packets were the racers that did early pickup the days before the race, about 15% of racers. On the day of the race most park their car, pick up their race number and go run. A vast majority declined a race packet or tossed it in the garbage. With the virtual race packet we are able to promote through email multiple times before AND after the race giving the business advertiser more exposure.

The cost part come in to play in the form of your printing cost. As an example a business would put in a brochure with a coupon attached. Each brochure costs about $.75 plus the coupon. So printing cost were doubling to tripling the cost of advertising.

Of course the waste part is self explanatory.

What can I put in the virtual goodie bag?

Any electronic version of the coupon, brochure or postcard that you would have put into an actual bag.

How big?

Postcard size is ideal, 6.5 in. x 4.5 in., we will accept larger or smaller, anything larger we may resize to fit on a page.

How do I submit?

Email your coupon, brochure or postcard in just about any electronic format to sponsor@alexandriaturkeytrot.com
