TAG! Level Up Brings Competitive Tag to Circuit of the Americas

Don’t miss Austin’s largest outdoor game festival in September 2020

For Immediate Release: 1/15/2020 

AUSTIN, TX – On the afternoon of Saturday, September 26, 2020, companies, collegiate teams, social athletic clubs, and families will gather at Circuit of the Americas for a challenge like Austin’s never seen before—the first annual TAG! Level Up event, benefiting Marathon Kids. Expect a festival atmosphere at this extraordinary game day, featuring themed tag arenas for adult teams, a kids’ zone for families, music and games, food, and drinks, and more. With tag games for competition and recreation, people of all ages and fitness levels are stepping up to the challenge.

Each TAG! arena will have its own game facilitators as well as themed games and prizes. Attendees can register as individuals or teams and jump in a game or two—or compete all afternoon! Simply want to cheer on the teams from the sidelines? You can also register as a spectator and enjoy all the event has to offer without breaking a sweat…at least, not much of one. It is Austin, after all! 

Heads-up, companies and corporations! TAG! Level Up offers myriad opportunities for businesses and corporations to get involved—starting with companies seeking a unique team-building experience. TAG! arenas can host up to 100 players at a time, and your coworkers will love running, shouting, diving, evading, and accessing their inner kid together. Sign up as a corporate team and compete together! 

We are also seeking vendors who’d like to set up a booth to display their products and services in front of two thousand-plus people. Special prices are available for nonprofits as well as for tables in the open pavilion. 

Want to sponsor this Austin original event? Join sponsors Whole Foods Market, and Tito’s Handmade Vodka in supporting Austin kids! All proceeds from TAG! Level Up will benefit Marathon Kids, inspiring kids to Level Up and be healthy and active for life. Sponsorships range from $1,000 to $50,000, and sponsors will receive benefits such as branding opportunities at the event—including entrance, obstacle and perimeter signage—as well as DJ announcements and speaking opportunities.
