SPONSOR THE POLAR ROLL

SHOWCASE YOUR BRAND

Why should you sponsor one, or all, of our events?

As a 501(c)3 non-profit, The 906 Adventure Team’s sole purpose is to make an impact on our community. Unlike those other events, we’re not owned by a publicly-held corporation, or charging $650 for a day of adventure. We’re trying to change lives, not bank account balances.

Our event participants know this, and they sell out all of our events, sometimes in minutes (Marji Gesick) other times in hours (Polar Roll) but they do sell out. At the time of this writing all we have available is a handful of 100 bike, and some running slots open for The Crusher, and those too will sell out.

Our audience vocally support the brands that support our events. Our sponsors often go out of the way to tell us that our racers make an impact on their business.

It’s all about community.

While a lot of races out there are run by for-profit companies, that’s not the case for Marji GesickPolar Roll and The Crusher. All of our events are productions of the 906 Adventure Team, a 501(c)3 whose mission is to empower people to become the best version of themselves through outdoor adventure. We don’t have a large staff of people (two, to be exact) or significant overhead, and that enables us to donate a significant portion of race revenues in two ways:

  1. Since 2015, we’ve given back more than $110,000 to the trail-builders of RAMBA, NTN, Sisu Dirt Crews, WinMan and the DCNT.
  2. We also support youth adventure programs in three communities, investing over $35,000 this year alone in equipment, training, and gear to remove barriers for all kids. Our summer and after-school programs now have over 350 participants, and spots fill up as quickly as Marji Gesick. There is a need we’re trying to fill: to connect kids with their communities and get them off devices.
