Spectrum Sports Creates "Run The City 5K"

IOA to sponsor San Diego’s Largest Office Party run to help companies thrive by making their employees the best they can be.


San Diego, Calif¬¬¬ – (January 23, 2017) – Spectrum Sports Management, the leading Southern California sports management event production and sponsorship agency joins forces with the Insurance Office of America (IOA) to present the first annual IOA Run the City 5k on Thursday, June 15, 2017 at NTC Park at Liberty Station, San Diego. Runners across the corporate community, including businesses and nonprofit organizations, are invited to attend “San Diego’s Largest Office Party.”

IOA Run the City 5K will ignite excitement about fitness and health in the business community, bringing together teams of all fitness levels to improve their health in a fun way. According to the American Diabetes Association, at least 2.5 hours of aerobic activity each eek could prevent or delay the onset of type 2 diabetes.

“With over 80% of employees in the U.S. not exercising regularly, Spectrum Sports is taking the initiative to promote the value and importance of corporate wellness,” said Mike Bone, Race Director of Spectrum Sports. “By creating our partnership with IOA, we are reaffirming our commitment to reduce the rising stress levels of corporate communities.

“Our community-oriented race will provide the opportunity to build strong employee morale and relationships, while allowing organizations to take pleasure in the evening as a whole,” added Bone.

The event will benefit the America Diabetes Association’s Greater San Diego Area, who will be involved in recruiting teams and assisting in educating the community to the benefits of exercise and stress reducing activities provided by the IOA Run the City 5K. The ADA knows that getting motivated is half the battle, which is why they offer strategies and ideas for taking the first step toward better health through daily activity.

The IOA Run the City 5k features a nighttime run followed by live entertainment and a beer garden for participants to enjoy. The race will begin at 6 p.m. and is expected to finish up by 9 p.m.

Entry Fees:
The entry fee will start at $30 and will increase to $40 over time. Participants are encouraged to register for the race quickly before it sells out.
