Our Team Sponsors Downtown Runaround

The team at Metro Nova Creative is always looking for opportunities to improve our city, and make it one of the best places to live! We are so excited to hear about the second annual Downtown Runaround from our friends at Downtown Greens, Community Greenspace. We’ve decided to sponsor the event, and our team looks forward to participating! Let’s spread the word, and get behind these amazing folks.

Downtown Greens is having its second annual Downtown Runaround March 5- 19, 2022! Last year’s run was a huge success with 190 participants! We are expecting at least 250 this year. 

During the fifteen days of March 5-19, participants are encouraged to run, walk, bike, 

skip, crawl, … a 5k at the gym, home gym, or around the neighborhood. 

Or, if they’re local, they’ll have a suggested route that goes through Downtown Greens and around downtown Fredericksburg, past as many sponsoring businesses as possible. 

The first 250 registered participants will receive a swag bag. All participants who sign up before February 20th will also receive a race t-shirt as well as other garden and sponsor swag! 

Sponsorship details: 

As a sponsor, you will have your name on social media and our monthly e-newsletter. The first 20 business sponsors will also receive their logo on the race swag bag and on our selfie banner!
