April 7th will be the press event for the Mayor’s Proclamation. We are coordinating our efforts to make this event happen effectively. T-shirts are designed in the hands of the vendor. New posters and flyers were delivered to the club. We are starting to see engagement from outreach in registrations with a 17.2% bump this week, which is encouraging. We have secured prizes for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place positions in the 5K and 10K from Kendra Scott.
We have started to plan for the PR event on 7th April. There is a lot to do to make this happen successfully. This is also going to be critical as we need to drive up registrations. In terms of logistics, our collateral will be delivered next week. We will then want to have members pass this out to the community. Revenues are actually tracking with last year and volunteers are tracking ahead in comparison to last year.
We have received the event permit from the City of Bellevue. We have also secured support from MOVIN and 98.9 ROCK have agreed to support event with PSA and Booths, which will boost PR. Preparations for promotional support (Mayor Proclamation/Company/Discounts) are underway. Collaterals and T-shirts ordered.
Internal skit kicked off to motivate our membership into actively promoting registrations (each member is being asked to find 2 volunteers and 22 runners). Zach Scott spoke to our club as part of his involvement with us and he confirmed that he will actively promote our race. We have made some decisions related to the logistics for the event that relate to the Race Village and our start/finish on the route.
