Get Creative

The Canal Run hasn't been successful by doing the same thing as everyone else. We’ve had chip timing longer than most other regional events have existed, our free high-resolution photo downloads hav made the Canal Run a social media darling, and our signature t-shirts are collector items for thousands of people across the country. With that said, we’re always looking for ways to push further. We’d love to have your help to do that. Things like becoming a race name sponsor, offering a scholarship to get more racers in free or having an aid station named after you are all things, we’d love to work with you to do. The ideas are endless, and we look forward to working with you to make the next great thing happen.
