Become a Sponsor

Dear Sponsorship Prospect,

Thank you for considering involvement in the 2015 Red Earth Classic Mountain Bike Race as a sponsor. We sincerely appreciate anything and everything that you can do to help make sure that our second annual event is successful this year. Our goal is to have this race continue to build and become a major event for the local area.

The Red Earth Classic’s mission;

Make the Ishpeming and Negaunee trail system a premier mountain biking destination!

Since the inception of the idea to start the Red Earth Classic, our efforts have been consistently aimed at achieving this mission. Last year, we were able to donate portions of race proceeds and hundreds of volunteer hours to the local trails. We intend to continue to do so in an effort to get the trail system signed and mapped properly as it develops.

In addition to supporting the local trail system efforts, we are also going to be launching the Youth Mountain Biking Development Program of Ishpeming and Negaunee.

Other initiatives we are working towards this year include;

  • Providing area youth with an opportunity to learn and live a healthy and active lifestyle through and sport of mountain biking.
  • Bring economic benefit to that cities that own the land that the bike trails are built on so they preserve it for that purpose into the future.
  • Bring tourism to the area by aiding in making the trails safer, more navigable and prevalent in magazines, other publications and online.
  • Work with the cities and represent the biking community wherever needed.
  • Work with GLRC to raise money for the recovery facility.
  • Match racer donation to one local Charity and the National MS Society.

As a sponsor, you will be helping in making this all possible. We expect this years race to be a huge success based on feedback received from last years group.

Thank you again and have a great day!
