WHO WE ARE
ABF Mud Run and ABF Mud Run Training Camps were founded by Chad Mason, a Certified Personal, Trainer and Nutritionist, who started personal training in the Marine Corps in 1993. About ten years ago, he became involved with numerous charities and helping others. To read some of his past charity event articles HERE
Having competed in several obstacles courses over the past few 20 years, Chad put together a plan to help raise money for local charities. Now all he had to do was convince a bunch of his students from the ABF Mud Run Training Camps to join him in this venture to create obstacle courses thru out the United States. This was an opportunity that several others quickly jumped at.
WHAT IS OUR GOAL
On April 18, 2015 we will be holding our seventh ABF Mud run on the grounds of Miller Farm in Berlin, NJ. This new location is home of our permanent year round 4 mile obstacle course. This turnkey course is available for rental to other organizations and charity events throughout the year. Our obstacles, tents, generators, water truck, field kitchen, medical team, timing company, DJ, and event director will allow you to hold an event of any size. A flat fee will be paid and the organization will solely be responsible for selling of the tickets and providing day of volunteers to work with our staff on their event day.
Our April 18th event’s ambition is to have over 1,000 participants. Most mud runs command double those numbers, but being this is only our 3nd year, we want to be realistic in our goals.
Your help!! We are currently seeking sponsors for our obstacles located throughout the course and/or volunteers to help us the day of the event. To become a day of volunteer please fill out volunteer application. We are seeking either monetary donations or give-aways for our racer bags. We have three levels of sponsorship: Gold, Silver and Bronze level $2,500, $1,000, and $500 respectively. For those community businesses that are able to supply materials for the building of the obstacles, we gladly welcome these contributions in place of a monetary donation. ie: lumber, bolts, hardware etc.
WHAT’S IN IT FOR YOU
Let’s face it? No one likes to ask this question. But if you are going to donate to us, it’s your right. All sponsors will get a link from our webpage Sponsor page where we are currently getting over 200 hits a day. This can be your company logo with a link to your website embedded to help redirect our participants to your site. You will also have your click-able logo presented on our online registration page.
Depending on your level of sponsorship, your company’s logo and information will be posted at an obstacle for all of our participants to see. The sponsorship levels are broken down as such:
$2,500 Gold: Your company logo and information will be displayed by itself at our Start or Finish Obstacle on the course. A photographer will also be stationed at this obstacle throughout the day taking pictures of our participants and your logo will be seen in most* of the images, These will also be featured on our website after the race. (*due to cropping and number of participants present in the frame)
$1,000 Silver: Your company logo and information will be solely displayed at an obstacle
$500 Bronze: Your company logo and information will be displayed at an obstacle along three other bronze level supporters
