On Father’s Day, June 16th 2013, the Creatine Marketing team spent the morning in downtown Sacramento at the Superheroes 5K. Some of us arrived early, in costume, donned the awesome red capes that were free with registration, and participated in the race. Others volunteered to sell food and beverages, and the rest of us focused on engaging with the crowd at our booth.
The costumes were amazing, it was incredible to see how many of them were hand made! At the booth we had the opportunity to do a little networking; we encouraged the racers to take pictures with our photo face-cut-out board and share them on their social media networks using the hashtag, #socialhero. We also had superhero themed temporary tattoos that we shared with the super-kids!
The weather was perfect and people from all over the Sacramento area came out to mingle, enjoy the food trucks and beer garden, and to get fit while having fun. It was great to see all of the Supermen and Wonder Women, but what was even more entertaining were the families dressed as the Incredibles, the guy who showed up as Quail Man, the dad who wore a Mermain Man costume with his son dressed as Barnicle Boy, the dog decked out in an Angry Birds suit, and all of the other participants who came as vilians instead– just to maintain some balance.
Our Twitter Bird and Creatine Man face-cut-out board provided a fantastic photo opportunity for the runners. People of all ages stopped by to stick their heads in and take pictures! We even had some babies in there a few times.
There were plenty of other chances for some great photos, the event planners even invited some professional photographers to run the Family Photo Area; the spot featured a city-scape background that was designed like a scene in a comic book. Families posed and jumped for the photographer and took home a unique and memorable souvenier.
Overall the event was a complete success. We all had a wonderful time visiting other company booths, interacting with the locals, and tattooing pint-sized superheroes. For more pictures check us out on Facebook!
