Sponsorship

Eddy Trail Races is a fun weekend with 3 different races 50k, 5k, and half marathon in length. Runners will have the opportunity to lodge at the site for the weekend. The courses will be chip timed by Gopher State Events. This year’s race will be on Saturday and Sunday, August 13th and 14th. 100% of the money received from business sponsors will be used for race expenses, with the excess given to Stanley Eddy Park Reserve and local groups.

Are you interested in sponsoring The Event? Sponsors are a pivotal part of event success and being a race sponsor is a wonderful marketing opportunity for your business. As a sponsor, your business will be highlighted in social media advertising, given race day shout-outs, and will be put on the shirt runners receive. Below is a description of what sponsors will get at each level of sponsorship. Each sponsor who contributes $500 or more can adopt a section of the event with volunteers to make it their own. This will create extra visibility for your business and leave a lasting mark on participants.
Would you prefer to know specifically what you are funding? Pick a race expense below and you can sponsor that specifically!
