OBJECTIVE

The Twilight Run / Walk / Roll & Post-Race Party is one of the largest CARA (Chicago Area Runners Association) certified 5K race in the Chicago-land area serving competitive and recreational runners and athletes with disabilities. The purpose of this event is to provide exposure to the Great Lakes Adaptive Sports Association and an opportunity for athletes who have physical disabilities or visual impairments to embrace the GLASA motto of “Let No One Sit on the Sidelines”.  The proceeds from this event will help GLASA provide year-round, daily adaptive sports programming and financial assistance for over 63% of GLASA athletes through the Athlete Scholarship Fund. Our goals are to help increase the overall health and wellness of our athletes, assist with funding of athlete scholarships and to expand outreach to surrounding communities, such as Waukegan and North Chicago.

The start and finish of the race is the Gorton Community Center, with the race winding through the streets of Lake Forest. Multiple divisions include age group awards for runners, teams, as well as for manual wheelchairs, racing chairs and hand cycles, ambulatory, amputee and the visually impaired.  Attendance at the 2016 race reached over 400 with additional friends, family members and supporters attending the post- race party.

NEW: Children’s Fun Run – This short distance run is FREE to children ages 10 and under; race time prior to the 5K race.

MARKETING PLAN

The Twilight Run / Walk / Roll & Post-Race Party will be marketed for community awareness, competition and attendance.  Our target audience includes Lake Forest, Lake Bluff and surrounding North Shore community families, experienced runners, members of the Great Lakes Naval Base, high school teams, participants with disabilities including GLASA athletes and the injured military population.  We will utilize several different avenues to advertise including local periodical resources, community connections, Sports-Abilities (national resource calendar for adaptive sport events), local high school and college campus outlets, Running Clubs, and GLASA’s social media.
