As you pursue business with Halloween race organizers, here are seven product categories to potentially pitch.
LONG-SLEEVE PERFORMANCE T-SHIRTS
Most runners enjoy collecting T-shirts that commemorate their participation in a race (sidenote: I do). Since you know you’re dealing with an athletic bunch, why not provide tees that offer performance qualities like moisture-wicking? With the weather cooling or soon to cool in much of the country, long-sleeve performance shirts could be a great fit for Halloween-themed races.
As more professional athletes don headbands (looking at you Baker Mayfield), the item is becoming more popular as a fashionable activewear accessory. As such, more races are offering headbands to participants. The product shown here is the polyester Austin Cooling Headband (HB101OP) from Innovation Line (asi/62660).
Attachable reflectors are a safety boon to runners, helping them to be seen while out training in the early morning, evening and night. Race organizers would be providing participants with an immediately useful item if they distributed light-up safety reflectors like the one shown here from Brighter Promotions (asi/42016).
Sport bottles like the 26-oz. Pacific Aluminum Sports Bottle (SM-6789) from Bullet (asi/42424) are welcomed by runners, for whom proper hydration is paramount.
Higher-end gear can work, too. Check out the nifty outerwear Monster Dash was offering.
Runners will appreciate being able to use towels – like this one (RT1811) from Custom Printing II LTD (asi/47971) – to mop the brow after a vigorous run. The towels also serve as mementos for many racers.
Lanyards, event tents and banners are all workaday items that run organizers and vendors can utilize at races. Be the promo pro that meets the need. This printed polyester lanyard (Lanyards LPY34) is from imprintID (asi/73651).
