About Us

“On Your Left!” It’s more than our motto, it’s the phrase we use when describing how we live, work and play. No we are not a media company, no we are not an event management company, no we are not a running specialty store, no we are not a running club and no we are not a traditional advertising agency. We are instead a hybrid of all of these. And like athletes who reach plateau’s in their training, they often find the need to do something different in order to continue improving, we recognized a similar plateau that media and event companies, running stores, clubs and agencies have reached in terms of their marketing and promotion. And in order to break through we suggest adding some DFWRUNS to the mix. Before you know it you will be screaming “ON YOUR LEFT!”, as you pass by your competition.

The DFWRUNS Infantry is Always Ready to Help Your Active Lifestyle Event, Brand or Wellness Program Fly


What exactly is an active lifestyle marketing agency? It is pretty simple really. Out of our passion for running we have recognized a need to ACTIVATE events, brands and corporate wellness programs. So we created an agency solely focused on this category and we offer a unique spin on traditional marketing services to what we call our three business verticals. We even have a cool chart to ACTIVATE your brain around this concept.

Why Invest in the Active Lifestyle? Here are some stats that catch our attention. 1

The ROI on company wellness programs ranges as high as 9 to 1, according to sources we have researched which include the Wellness Council of America, Blue Cross/Blue Shield and Texas A&M University. Sounds too good to be true, but even if it is half right the ROI is very good. Why not challenge our Director of Corporate Recess to put a program together for you? Don’t worry we can start small by being a simple resource for corporate group packages at events. Want to go bigger? Ok, how about a marathon training program for your employees or a private fun run for your next convention?

Why Invest in the Active Lifestyle? Cont. 4

Half Marathon’s, triathlons and adventure races are growing a rate of nearly 70% That is great news! Why? Well first of all we have a bunch of half marathon and adventure race clients. Second, we have activated brands at triathlons all over the country. Third, it is not every day that the average person can get up and run 13.1 miles or swim a half mile or conquer Guerilla Ropes. They have to train and stay in shape which means a consistent active lifestyle marketing plan makes sense. Now it goes against the quote the, “Stats don’t lie!”, but don’t discount other active lifestyle events. The truth is they are all growing in quantity and quality and working with DFWRUNS to build a strategy to target the events that make sense for your brand is a great first step!

How about a little recess?

Come on, who didn’t love recess? Well we have many reasons to love it! We are talking building solutions that give your company a healthy, energized and active workforce. Training Programs Group Discounts VIP Hospitality Opportunities Convention/Custom Runs

Companies we have helped to get fit. We have worked with HR departments for some of the healthiest companies in DFW including Cinemark, Texas Captial Bank and Preferred Imaging MRI. We have done shoe fittings for 200 employees at Kie Wit, created a private 5K for the US Hispanic Chamber of Commerece and hosted VIP hospitality for KONE and Andrews Distributing at active lifestyle events.

Investing in Corporate Wellness delivers an ROI as high as 9:1!

“The corporate recess team has brought a new level of fun and excitement to our wellness program. We’ve worked with them for the past 3 years on developing training programs for our employees.

CORPORATE Recess


Goal

Introduce Sun & Ski Sports to the running community as a viable option for shoes and apparel through branding initiatives at local running events.

hurdles

We are not talking Edwin Moses, we are talking the challenge of entering a new store brand into a market with six competing specialty retailers, in a short window of time, without alienating any of the running events from the other specialty retailers in the market.

creative soolution

Looking for something more customized to fit your brand or event’s initiatives? Don’t worry, we got you covered!

We Rocked and Rolled out a band entitled the Sun & Ski Supinators. Emblazoned with guitars, drums, shorty shorts, longs songs and super hero capes the band featured songs that had the word “run” in the lyrics. Race director’s felt like they were “Running Down A Dream” because it was a tremendous enhancement to their events without any cost (we included sound as a part of the mix), participants felt Sun & Ski was “Born to Run” because the music was amazing, and Sun & Ski loved it as it made their “Band on the Run” the center of attention at events.

benefits

Seeing is believing go the distance general services What keeps us running ON YOUR LEFT!

Seeing Is Believing

Like living a healthy lifestyle, Sun & Ski sees how this will keep them in running shape for years to come as we scale the Supinators to other markets, introduce social media campaigns and in store promotions which combine music and running...huh, wonder if that is a good idea?

Our set list includes classics like Born to RUN and RUNNING Down A Dream!


Goal hurdles

There are 10 hurdles you have to clear in the 110 meter race, we cleared them all! Logistics can certainly be an issue when planning and coordinating a 3.1 mile race, given a short window of time and only .87 miles worth of road.

creative soolution

Ever see a 180 JAM? How about SPECTACULAR SPIN MOVE or CROSS OVER? Ever try those moves while running a 5K? We took the strength of NBA action and blended it with the challenge of a small area to come up with a fun and exciting course. And we impressed runners from all over the world (not just LA and its suburbs, we are talking runners from Bulgaria, Italy, France and more), as they ran, walked and dribbled in the inaugural NBA All-Star FIT, Run, Walk and Dribble on Figueroa in downtown LA.

benefits

We introduced the NBA FIT brand to the running community of Los Angeles as well, created a staple event that the league can use year after year as a way to engage the local and global community during All-Star week.

We broke the laws of physics by turning .87 miles worth of road in downtown Los Angeles into 3.1 miles!�

ON YOUR LEFT! What keeps us running general services Go The Distance Seeing is believing

Launch the inaugural 5K at the NBA All-Star Game as an opportunity to showcase NBA FIT’s commitment to fighting childhood obesity.


Goal

Introduce the Jack Black brand and the Performance Remedy collection to the active lifestyle consumer with a specific target of triatheltes.

hurdles

Mention skin care products and which gender comes to mind? Don’t worry, we know Gail Devers would buy some for her man! Then throw in the brand name Jack Black and set up an expo booth at Bloomsday and people are in line for autographs. No, the actor Jack Black is not name behind these amazing products! But DFWRUNS is!

creative soolution

We Rev’ed up the brand by positioning it as the Official Skin Care line of the up and coming Rev3 Triathlon Series. Talk about opening a brand new market and brand new customer! Over 90% of the consumers we spoke with had never heard of Jack Black, let alone the Performance Remedy collection. However 100% loved the idea and loved the product! Which was evident by the lines we had at the expo booth! We sampled, ran a sweepstakes and offered bounce backs from Costa Rica to Portland resulting in record sales and increased brand awareness for Jack Black, and they didn’t even have to leave their office!

benefits

Seeing is believing go the distance general services What keeps us running ON YOUR LEFT!

SEEING is Believing, Cont.

Making a lasting impression is easy when your products are this good. Trust us, we have been looking for sun block that when you sweat doesn’t drip into your eyes — yes that is an open endorsement for Jack Black Sun Guard! But more importantly we are building the brand through a long term commitment to the active lifestyle community which includes partnerships with the Brooks ID Program and other unique opportunities that set the brand apart. All with a turn-key, cost effective solution offered by DFWRUNS!

We activated Jack Black at Triathlons from LA to DC.

It is an analogy we use a lot when talking to new EVENT clients. Imagine walking down the cereal aisle at the grocery store. It is all cereal but how many different types are there? How did you pick one? Which brand is top of mind? Which offers the benefits you want? So we took the 13.1 message to the street. We focused on the amazing course (best in DFW is you ask us) and utilized our Promotional Pace Leaders (PPL’s) to help spread the word. We hosted 13.1 social runs to introduce the brand and the event to the market on the 13th of each month, branded them up and entered them in the top running events in DFW and had them bragging about the race on their personal social media sites.

benefits

How do you think the USATF track team would feel if the competition grew by over 70%? You saw it earlier, there has been a 70% increase in the number of half marathons across the country and the DFW market is home to over 30 of them, can you say competition?

There is knock against some of the national event series that they come into a market, zap the energy out of the running community and really don’t give much back. With our Lucky 13 PPL crew we employed local talent to spread the message. Which means we left a lasting impression with the tens of thousands or runners we reached, immediately positioned the 13.1 brand as powerhouse in the DFW running community and provided a scalable model for US Road Sports to utilize around the county. All while staying local!

The 13.1 Cannonball Run Social Run put our picture and more importantly the 13.1 brand in the headlines including covers in the Dallas Morning News!

ON YOUR LEFT! What keeps us running general services Go The Distance Seeing is believing

Launch the inaugural 13.1 Dallas Half Marathon in the backyard of its parent company US Road Sports — no pressure!
