Good Times Running is an event creation and management company dedicated to re-introducing people to the joys of running. Moms & Dads, Business leaders, Charitable workers... Everyone benefits. Our small, dedicated team of experts are committed to creating events that exceed the expectations of today’s running enthusiast, be they participating for the 1st time or the 100th time. Maybe your organization already organizes a Run, Walk or other outdoor event catered to Generation Active and you need some new ideas? Ask for our Event Consulting Checklist and lets get started together.
In a rapidly evolving marketing world, brand experiences are the new currency. Companies are actively embracing events as a means to engage customers, partners and employees on a more personal level. There are many reasons why people choose to participate : to commemorate a loved one, to raise money to fight diseases, to lose weight, to keep in shape... but participants in fitness events share something bigger : a powerful sense of accomplishment and a renewed sense of community. Associating your brand with these powerful feelings creates connections that are far deeper than simple advertising.
Good Times Running and hundreds of other Event Organizers are all on pause and/or many have cancelled their 2021 events due to the ongoing pandemic. To solidify and establish the massive scope and size of our collective Industry in spring 2020 race and events organizers formed the Canadian Endurance Sports Alliance of which GTR is an active member. Among other things if you are reading this message and want to support us, Join if you are a Race or Event Organizer, Vendor, Supplier or even part time contractor who is now out of work. Call your local MP and remind him/her/she about the importance of our Industry on society. Raising funds, changing lives, empowering individuals to take care of their own health and wellness. Bringing communities together outdoors in a safe, friendly manner.
Thank you and we hope to see you soon at a starting line. #startlineimpact
