Ironistic, a premier website development and online marketing company, and Hudson Studio, a visual communications firm providing graphic design services, announce the 10th Annual Run! Geek! Run! The 5K road race will be held at 8:30 a.m. on September 24, 2017, in the Potomac Yard area of Alexandria, Virginia.
All proceeds from Run! Geek! Run! will directly support the Alexandria Firefighters Helping Hands Relief Foundation. The Helping Hands Relief Foundation was developed to assist the members of the Alexandria Firefighters in the event of an unforeseen catastrophic event. Their mission is to provide timely financial assistance to the members and their immediate families who incur a qualifying undue hardship.
Ironistic and Hudson Studio firmly believe in small businesses supporting the community they belong to. With participation from runners and sponsors, who have roots in the Northern Virginia and the DC area, Run! Geek! Run! will benefit local firefighters who require support often not available through insurance or assistance programs.
Participants in the 2017 Run! Geek! Run! 5K will receive a t-shirt and souvenir “geek” glasses. Bobblehead trophies will be given to the top three overall male and female finishers; top three Masters male and female finishers, as well as the top three finishers in 16 different age groups. The top three corporate and community teams will also receive awards. Race registration is $30 until August 18, $35 until online registration closes on September 20 and $40 at packet pickup and on race day.
Sponsorships for this event provide companies and organizations the opportunity to give back to the local community, as well as gain visibility. All corporate sponsors will have their company logo displayed on the race website, banner and
t-shirts. More information about sponsorship opportunities is available at rungeekrun.com/sponsor.
