Home / Tips on Running a Marathon 5k Charity “Fun Run”

CoolTowel® is a new patented/trademarked solution for heat exhaustion/heat stroke or heat related injuries.

Each CoolTowel® offers instant cooling, from a portable re-sealable pouch that does NOT need water, refrigeration or any advanced prep.  They are perfect for marathon runs, professional or amateur, and are especially effective for weekend charity 5k “fun run” events.

Lets talk about YOU. If you are thinking of participating in your 1st charity 5k or “Fun-Run” event, there are things you need to know.  Many websites have advice for new runners, but here are some key points we can’t stress enough.

  1. Establish a “training program”. It doesn’t have to be very rigorous if you are more a “5k FUN” than a 5k RUN” type person. Either plan needs training. You are planning to participate with co-workers or as part of a social-group of friends, train together. It makes it easier. 
  2. Get the right “gear”. SHOES are critical. Your “fashion-statement” can be most anything, but your feet need support, just like the charity.  When you run/walk during your training, or during the “big day” event,  Stay hydrated and “cool”. The #1 new portable cooling solution is CoolTowel®.  There is no need to carry/look for ice water to dip your “sweat towel” into. Isn’t it just disgusting to re-use someone else's water refreshment? CoolTowel® comes in a re-sealable pouch, and doesn’t need water, refrigeration or any preparation. Put a CoolTowel® in your travel bag, fanny pack or “team” bag. It’s always ready, when you need it.  Enjoy your training, and the event. Stay hydrated and stay cool with CoolTowel®. 

Are You a Marathon, 5k  or “Fun Run” Organizer?

We have suggestions for YOU too.  

The #1 Rule must be the safety of your participants. The #2 Rule is: Be sure to actually raise money for the charity or organization. CoolTowel® can help with both. 

As we’ve said, CoolTowel® is a new patented/trademarked solution for heat exhaustion/heat stroke or heat related injuries. Each CoolTowel offers instant cooling, from a portable re-sealable pouch that does NOT need water, refrigeration or any advanced prep. Every “rest station” and Run-Marshal should have quick access to a CoolTowel®. Your staff will be the 1st responder(s) [most likely] to any heat-related problems your participants may encounter. CoolTowel® is used by the Salvation Army’s Disaster Relief Services, “on-scene” after disasters, fires and floods. If California wild-fire fighters use them in the heat, You should have them handy too… especially if they can “pay for themselves”. Here’s How:

The Hennessy Distributing “team” has years and years of experience with branding and promotion. CoolTowel® is brand-new cooling- tech, which makes them a great (and useful) item for your participant “swag-bags”, but we’ve been at this for a LONG TIME. Leverage the safety and convenience of a CoolTowel®.  When purchased in bulk, they are an affordable addition for your product selection. Sponsors are always looking for maximum exposure. The CoolTowel® packaging can be printed/labeled with your organization name, event name AND/or SPONSOR’S name, branding, colors or logo. (There are minimum quantity requirements and advance order deadlines). Wouldn’t your major sponsor like to be printed across the most popular item at the event? During “day of the event” activities, CoolTowel® can be sold to family, friends and spectators, at an attractive price point, raising further revenue, along side established drink, snack, food or “swag” sales.

CoolTowel® will never replace the commemorative T-shirt, but it can increase the safety margins of participants and increase incremental revenue. Win- Win!
