An unfortunate ad placement on a race registration page

Sunday, February 23, 2014

I always try to patronize race sponsors, but I wonder who solicited this local business? I cropped out the name of the funeral home.

I appreciate local businesses who support fitness activities in our community and I wouldn't mind having the NAME of this one in the list on the back of my race shirt, but I don't think I'd be in a hurry to redeem any "door prizes" they might contribute.

As I searched for options for future races, I saw the usual types of ads sponsoring the events, but this one was a real surprise.

If you were new to exercise, running, walking or racing, wouldn't this ad make you think twice?

It looks like a nice, well planned event. There’s even an “after party.” I hope it’s not an “ever-after” party.
