Sponsorship Opportunities

The Short Pump Mile is the largest timed youth road race in Richmond, attracting over 1,300 runners in 2016. This event, started in 2009 and organized by NOVA of Virginia Aquatics, promotes fitness, camaraderie, school pride, family fun, and community involvement.

Our elite group of sponsors helps make the Short Pump Mile and Express Fun Run a special event and also an affordable one for many families. By sponsoring the event, your business or organization helps area children learn how fun running can be and supports community outreach, all while underwriting costs of the event. 100% of proceeds benefit community outreach. Over $2,500 will be distributed to the physical education departments of local schools to incentivize and award participation. Other proceeds provide scholarships for NOVA’s learn-to-swim program and team, NOVA’s charitable efforts, and partnerships with area non-profit organizations.

We have various levels of sponsorship available, and would love to discuss the options with you. Please contact Ann McGee at 804.750.1183 or annmcgee@novaswim.org for more information.
