AUDIENCE

Sponsorship of the RELIANCE Deep Woods Gravel Grinder gives you exposure to three audiences:

1. The in-person audience of participants and volunteers, along with their friends and family. In addition to all of the sponsor logo signage and shout-outs by the event MC, this audience receives numerous pre-event emails with sponsor information and logos.

2. The online audience of TennesseeGravel.com. The website not only hosts all of the information regarding the RELIANCE event, but it also provides free downloadable cycling routes and bikepacking information along with a challenging individual time trial series. With this diversity of offerings, TennesseeGravel.com attracts over 16,000 users annually. Sponsors of the RELIANCE event receive logo placement in the footer of every page of TennesseeGravel.com.

3. The mountain bike audience of SORBA Chattanooga and its supporters. As the beneficiary of the event, SORBA Chattanooga (the local mountain bike association) recruits volunteers for the event and brings attention to the event. As a result, sponsors of the RELIANCE event will receive exposure to this audience as well.

PERFORMANCE

In our first year in 2024, the RELIANCE Deep Woods Gravel Grinder attracted 170 riders from 23 states, receiving rave reviews from participants both at the event and in the post-event survey, with 97% of respondents indicating they had a positive experience and 2/3rds of those giving us the highest rating of "awesome!"

For 2025 we expect 250 riders with upgrades across the board, applying the first-year lessons to make the event even better! Check out the sponsorship opportunities below and CONTACT US if you'd like to be a partner in what is poised to become one of the premier cycling events in the Southeast!
