Are you interested in gaining exposure for your company, event, or product through Indiana Runner? Of course you are, and we can help!

Indiana Runner is the number one source for everything Indiana high school cross country and track, including results, rankings, stories, articles, and just about anything else. Our goal is to provide the best possible outlet for fans, athletes, parents, alumni, and anyone else to read, discuss, and analyze Indiana cross country and track. We receive thousands of hits a day both to our main page and our Message Board. These loyal IR followers could be ones that you gain through a sponsorship with our site.

IR is a small entity, and one that does not operate to make money. All profit goes back into the site, equipment, and events we host such as the Indiana Runner Distance Showcase. Still, you will not get more out of a sponsorship with anyone other than Indiana Runner with the fan base we cover. We are grateful to all sponsors as they are the reason we are able to cover our great sport to the degree the way we do!

Whether it’s for a few weeks or a year, we have flexible options in advertising for you! There must be a reason great organizations such as Chuck Koeppen’s All Star CampThree Rivers Running Company, and USA Track and Field continue to advertise with Indiana Runner year after year!

An explanation of our Front Page and Message Board Sponsorship��can be found below:

Through our sponsorship agreement, we cooperate with you to create a banner much like the ones currently on the front page of our site. The banner is then linked  to your site. Located on the right side of our main page are our part time sponsors. These sponsors are generally looking for sponsorship for anywhere from a couple of weeks to a few months. Any time new sponsors are added to our site, they are put into a flash rotation with other current sponsorship’s which helps catch the eye as well! Located at the top of the page are our permanent and founding sponsors, Chuck Koeppen’s All Star Cross Country Camp and Three Rivers Running Company. We make sure we are always loyal to all our sponsors and do as much as possible to help get their organization the exposure they deserve.

Also included in sponsorship is the ability to post and “sticky” a thread on our famous message board about any promotions, updates, big news, etc. that your event/company/product might have. After the front page, the message board is the most popular portion of the site. This is where our IR junkies are able to log on and talk running with our staff and other fans. Threads are able to be updated whenever new information/details are needed to be added.

As your event nears or as you wish to publicize specials or deals, we are very proactive about tweeting and sending out facebook posts on news, reminders, and deadlines you might have. If you have a Twitter or Facebook account for the race, we like to re-tweet or re-post some of your information as well.
