Sponsorship Levels

The mission of our club is to encourage the sport of running as a fun and healthy activity for people of all ages and all backgrounds in the Delaware area. Funds (and goods/services) from sponsors help Pike Creek Valley Running Club fulfill this purpose. A portion of these funds is donated to certain other non-profit organizations that we are affiliated with.

PCVRC seeks to partner with local businesses & groups willing to assist our club in return for recognition and the best possible value for their efforts. “Levels” of sponsorship help us ensure consistent and fair treatment to all. Besides member dues, the greatest source of club revenue is support of specific events (races) or general sponsorship of PCVRC.   Download Sponsorship PDF or contact any board member for details.
