 Recreational Running Event Fund



    Each year, hundreds of runners travel to Titusville to participate in the growing number of recreational running events that celebrate the rich heritage and physical beauty of the greater Titusville area. Now, race event coordinators have a new source of support to help make runners – and the friends and family they bring with them – feel welcome.   
    The Greater Titusville Development Foundation established the Recreational Running Event Fund in 2016 to support projects, activities, and amenities that enhance local race events and help provide a memorable experience for race participants, volunteers, and spectators. Seed money for the fund came from the Titusville Leisure Services Foundation.  In 2017 GTDF awarded just over $4000 in Grants to local organizations for their events.  
    GTDF’s Recreational Running Event Fund will accept proposals from race directors, event coordinators, and municipal authorities for items such as welcome banners, Titusville area pocket maps, and welcome packets for runners. Other eligible projects include outdoor activities on race days that complement the running event, such as games for spectators during the race and interactive activities for runners and volunteers.  “We’re happy to consider any reasonable proposal that adds to the enjoyment of the running event, and that helps make Titusville an attractive venue to hold these events,” said Larry Fledderman, President of the GTDF Board of Directors.  
    Presently, GTDF will consider proposals for events that will take place in 2018 only. Proposals should be submitted in letter format and addressed to the GTDF Board of Directors, P.O. Box 425, Titusville, PA 16354. Proposals should include a detailed description of the item or project and an itemized budget.  Awards will be limited to $500 per event.  The deadline for submission is Monday, April 2nd.
