Mercury Events has fun, unique events that bring out competitive elite level runners looking to test themselves on well managed courses against the best competition, walkers who need a long course time limit to finish the distance but know that there will still be a medal and a fun festival waiting for them at the finish line and everyone in between. Our expos/festivals are built to maximize the party aspect for the participant while insuring that the sponsors and vendors are able to reach the audience they are looking for with their products and services. Our team has built events from nothing and renewed growth for plateaued events. We are available for marketing consultation or we can design and implement an event from start to finish.
As a competitive runner I was uncertain the race would be worth my time, but it brings some pretty decent fast competition as well as a really fun and inviting festive atmosphere! I love races that combine fast competition with the festive. There were fun costumes, music, and a great little expo. The hairpin turns were tough but the course was so flat!!!
