The 8th Annual Cinco de Mayo Trail Run sponsorship opportunities packet can be downloaded here.  Please contact Erinn Tozer for more information.

We are proud of our partnership with Teradata, a company that specializes in database software, enterprise data warehousing, data warehouse appliances and analytics. Teradata has also traditionally formed a company team to run in the race. Last year, they came out in full force.

“The Cinco de Mayo Trail Run is one of Teradata’s most significant sponsorships because it gives us the opportunity to volunteer with other local employers and the community to support the elementary schools our children attend,” says D’Anne Hotchkiss, spokeswoman for Teradata. “The Valley Elementary Educational Foundation does an incredible job, every year, bringing together people and organizations in support of first-class education and scholastic achievement. They make the Trail Run one of the favorite events of our Rancho Bernardo Teradata Cares team.”
