J&A Races strives to make our races as fun and interactive for our participants as possible. We love to partner with local groups and organizations to put entertainment, or “course activations” throughout our race courses.

Some examples of course activations we have had in the past are; live musicians, DJs, cheerleaders, drum lines, pep bands, dance teams, cultural dance groups, Christmas elves, costumed Halloween characters and more. You don’t even have to have “entertainment skills”, we love groups who just want to come out, make a ton of noise, and encourage our runners!

Do you have a group that would like to participate in a “course activation”? We would love to hear from you! The more creative the idea, the better!

Please fill out this form and someone from J&A Racing will be in touch with you.
