Interested in Sponsoring?

As word of this unique race continues to spread around the running community, larger crowds are anticipated each year. Through heavy social media and online presence, Chilly Challenge will promote your company to thousands of viewers. In addition, be sure to join us on race day! Most sponsor levels are invited to set up a table at the race affording several hours of face-to-face promotional time with our community. This gives many opportunities for name recognition and exposure to our sponsors. Finally, every person that registers for the Chilly Challenge receives a race tee shirt. These tee shirts, with sponsor names and logos on the back, are a walking advertisement for

years to come as the runners wear them around town.

***Attention sponsors: sponsorship deadline has been extended to January 29, 2022.
