Sponsor Packages

The YMCA is presenting a unique opportunity for key businesses and brands to demonstrate their commitment to promoting team building and community spirit whilst increasing brand exposure and awareness through media, advertising and promotional activities associated with the 2018 YMCA Rat Race.

Event sponsorship will provide your brand with the ability to communicate with a highly engaged audience prior to, during and after the event.

  • It is a community event that will attract over 2,000 people from the local and greater Brisbane areas.
  • It attracts strong media attention.
  • Our event is unique for a number of reasons including our location in the heart of Brisbane, and our ability to throw an amazing after party.

In-Kind Partners

The opportunity exists to become an In-kind Partner if you are unable to provide a monetary contribution. This sponsorship will still allow you to showcase your business and be an integral part of the event.

In-Kind Partnerships involve:

  1. As part of your sponsorship you will be asked to donate a prize to the YMCA RAT RACE prize draw.
  2. Provision of promotional items (branded and unbranded) that can be included in the entrant rat packs.
  3. Supply of goods and services required to facilitate the event (e.g. infrastructure items, obstacle equipment etc.)
  4. Social media and digital marketing support – this requires you to post about YMCA Rat Race in the lead up to the event
  5. Festival area activation for our racers to participate in

Our in-kind partners providing up to $5,000 worth of goods or services will be listed on our website, be featured on our social media for their involvement, and receive verbal acknowledgement on the day.
