thebeast-35Spartan Race is always looking for GREAT sponsors.  We aren’t a “mud run” or an “event” we’re a race in the emerging sport of obstacle racing.  We care about our athletes, we tell their stories, prepare them for races with training and nutrition, and look to encourage a healthy lifestyle that can be shared and appreciated in families and communities.  Our goal is to help all our athletes find their finish line.

We have a FB page and Twitter account where we talk about workouts of the day and ways to stay motivated and strong, we blog about our athletes and tell our event stories on our Spartan TV channel and Radio show.

What are we looking for?  Brands that share in the passion, performance, competitive spirit, and the forever living in the moment attitude that Spartans have!  Our athletes are defining our emerging sport of obstacle racing and we want strong sponsors to be a part of that evolution.

We would like to hear from YOU, the Spartan Army, as to who you might know, who youthebeast-37might be able to suggest, and who you would like to see Spartan Race build a continuing and forging relationship with going forward.

So what can you do?  If you work for, have a connection to, or a relationship with a company that fits that description, please email sponsors@spartanrace.comand be sure to include:

1. Name of the company.

2. Point of contact name.

3. Contact number and email.

4. How you know the point of contact, if it isn’t you.

5. YOUR contact info.

A warm accepting lead is the best way to introduce a new brand to our amazing platform of Spartan Race.

What’s in in it for you?  If the sponsorship becomes executed, you and a Guest will receive a Free Season Pass for the 2012 upcoming Spartan Race Season!  Not too shabby…

The McNaughton

The McNaughton is an Ultra Trail Run consisting of a rugged 10-mile loop in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Runners will repeat the loops 3, 10, 15, 20, or 50 times, depending on if they are competing in the 30, 100, 150, 200, or 500 mile race.  The loop has 2400 vertical feet of elevation gain, so the 30 miler will feature 7,200 ft; the 100 miler will feature 24,000 ft; the 150 miler will feature 36,000 ft; the 200 miler will feature 48,000 ft; and the 500 miler will feature 120,000 ft of elevation change.

The race is hosted by Spartan’s sister company, Peak Races, which puts on a variety of ultra-distance events, including cycling races, trail ultras, and the infamous Death Race on June 24th 2011 (part of the Spartan Race series.)  Additional races include a 100 mile snowshoe race (if you’re not up to that, you can opt for a marathon, half-marathon, and 10K snowshoe on that same weekend.)   In March, Spartan’s own Jason Jaksetic aka The Barn Beast competed in the 100 mile snowshoe and recounted his inspiring successful completion of the brutal race on his blog. There are also cycling events and trail ultras put on by Peak Races include the McNaughton Ultra – which started this week.

The 500 milers began their journey earlier in the week.  Their race has a 198 hour time limit (just over 8 days.)  The other races all begin this upcoming week.
