SPONSORSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Support the cause! We launched the Tennessee Gravel project in 2020 to bring attention to the incredible gravel cycling available in the Southern Blue Ridge Mountains east of Chattanooga. By offering free downloadable routes and bikepacking information, along with a challenging individual time trial series, TennesseeGravel.com attracted over 18,000 site visits and 10,000 unique users in its first year, all without advertising! Gravel cycling is exploding, and TennesseeGravel.com has quickly evolved into a digital hub for this fast-growing community.

With the RELIANCE event, we're now bringing this community together in person for a fun weekend of gravel riding and camaraderie. By appealing to cyclists of all levels, the event will provide our sponsors with exposure to a broad and diverse audience. With an exceptional homebase at Hiwassee Ocoee State Park, a lively finish line & vendor village, super scenic routes, and low-traffic roads, we believe RELIANCE Tennessee Gravel is poised to become one of the premier gravel events in the eastern U.S.!

Proceeds from the event will support the Tennessee Gravel project, not only in its role as a promotional and supportive hub for gravel cycling in the region, but also as a hands-on partner with the Forest Service to keep our neck of the woods clean and accessible through trail work, trash pick-up, and other projects like construction of the Spring Creek pedestrian bridge. We're excited to be part of a larger movement of similar organizations in our region who are promoting outdoor recreation as an economic development tool for the rural communities of Southern Appalachia, a movement that emphasizes the preservation of our region's natural treasures to attract visitors who share those values.

Partner with us as we work to promote & preserve this amazing outdoor playground!
