Gopher State Events "Featured Event" Request Form

Promoting your event is the key to increasing participation numbers. And while bigger isn't necessarily better, especially in events "for a cause", higher participation numbers can increase the value of an event to it's beneficiaries. With this in mind we have created our "Featured Events" utility.

As GSE has grown to become a major event management "player", we are seeing a dramatic increase in our website traffic. This is very fertile soil for event promotion. People that come to our site for results, race calendars, and related reasons run races. Putting your race in front of these folks can be huge in terms of growing your race.

Listing your event with us as a "Featured Event" carries the following benefits:

  • Randomly appearing presence front-and-center on our web site's home page.
  • Banner ad on our "Results" and "Mobile Results" pages.
  • Block ad on our individual results emails, pre-race emails, and post-race picture gallery email.
  • Listed whereever our "Your Next Race" feature shows up (on the "Calendar" page, on this page, etc)
  • The ad can be displayed up to 6 months from your race date.

In essence, we put your event in front of as many event participants as we can...literally thousands. Unfortunately there is a cost for this because of the prime "electronic real estate" that we allocate for it. It is significantly less for events we manage but any event can get listed here.

To get your event featured, just fill out the form on this page. We will send you a price quote and request a banner and a block image. We choose not to publish our pricing but it is roughly equivalent to one to three entry fees for events that we manage and equivalent to about three to five entry fees for events that we do not manage.

NOTE: If you are a GSE Event Director please log in and use that form under your profile. It will be much easier for you to create a featured event there.
