Sponsor

Michigan Adventure Racing events including the Michigan Adventure Race, Coast to Coast Gravel Grinder, Lord of the Springs bike race, Hurt the Dirt trail races and Dirty Duel trail race offer some of the most affordable sponsorship packages of any medium-scale event in West Michigan. And with a 98+% satisfaction rate achieved at every race – more than 100 since 2011 – you will be part of a fun, positive event that is good for West Michigan – its athletes, recreational enthusiasts, and charity partners.

Here’s what people are saying about Michigan Adventure Racing events:

  • “Very well organized! Awesome energy. Very reasonably priced. It was an awesome time!”
  • “Thanks to you and your team my daughter and I made memories together that we’ll cherish for the rest of our lives–and that’s no exaggeration.”
  • “The perfect race; the kind that I have been looking for for a long time.”

Your sponsorship will contribute to improving the overall lifestyle, culture and physical health of our West Michigan community and promote the many recreational spaces and activities here and throughout Michigan. Sponsorship will also allow for more race fees to go toward the local charities that we partner with. Our long-term charities we partner with include Team Orphans (adoption grants for special needs kids), Camp Anew (for kids who are dealing with loss), Camp Roger scholarship fund (for kids who can’t afford summer camp), Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and the various “Friends of” groups that help maintain Ludington, Silver Lake and Muskegon State Parks where we often hold our races.

Past or current sponsors include some of the strongest brands around including Merrell, Gazelle Sports, Spectrum Health, Mary Free Bed, Red Bull, Founders Brewing Co., Bill & Paul’s Sporthaus, West Michigan Bike & Fitness, Cannonsburg Village/Honey Creek Inn, and many others.

Note that race organizers have a right to determine if gear or gift certificates qualify as “cash replacement” value; in other words, they generally will be outdoor gear or gift certificates that can be used as top finisher prizes.
