Become a Race Sponsor

Friends of Crossroads is happy to announce that the Crossroads Trail Run 2016 met its fundraising goal,  raising $11,634 to support Crossroads at Big Creek’s operational fund and Crossroads Ski-for-Free program.    As one of our runners wrote, “This is my favorite race. Always a great event. We’ll be back!”  We hope you will choose to ‘be back’ and put your name out in print as a supporter for Crossroads Trail Run 2017. If you are new to our event, we’d love to have you join us as a sponsor.

The 2017 goal for Crossroads Trail Run 2k, 5k, 10k  is to raise  $12,000 to support Crossroads Operations, maintain the  Crossroads Ski-for-Free program  and prepare for a permanent space for this program.  In collaboration with Door County Silent Sports, Friends of Crossroads continues to enhance this community program by providing people of all ages and abilities free access to ski and snowshoe equipment, volunteer training, and groomed trails for exercise and health. Last winter, more than 500 people between ages 3 and 76, borrowed ski equipment.  Crossroads Ski-for-Free is open three days a week and upon request.

As a Crossroads Trail Run 2017 sponsor, your name will be advertised in a variety of ways, depending upon your level choice. Sponsors will be listed on our website, our registration form, at the start /finish line, and on our official bag flyer.  With a donation of $250 or more received by March 15, your name or logo will be printed on our Green-Layer performance t-shirts.  This trail running event is publicized through social media, radio, newspaper, and on running event calendars throughout the state and nation.  All sponsors will be listed by level in the annual Crossroads donor edition newsletter which is distributed in the fall.

The Friends of Crossroads invite you to be part of the 8th Crossroads Trail Run community event through your participation and financial contribution.  Remember to save the date, Saturday June 24, 2017.  See you on the Trails!

With your sponsorship, people of all ages and abilities will have free access to ski and snowshoe equipment, training, and trails for exercise and health. The earlier your sponsorship is received, the longer your business or name will be recognized on our website.
Sponsorship must be received by March 15th for your sponsor name to be included on shirt. Our site will be ready for the 2017 event in February.
