This year’s poster was once again designed by Rod Tasaka with most of the photos by Dave Silver. Lorenz Jimmy took the shot on the bottom left in the cliffs. If you would like high res poster for your wall, click here to download the print ready PDF.
I would like to welcome back our title sponsor, Atmosphere, and our presenting sponsor, Merrell, for another season with the MOMAR. Both companies have been fantastic partners for many years now and we attribute much of our success to their commitment.
Racers of the Cumberland MOMAR have a chance at winning a $1000 shopping spree at Atmosphere. And Merrell is putting up some running shoes to the team with the most spirit. They will also be supplying every racer and volunteer with a MOMAR branded souvenir tech top.
We are busy locking down all of our Community Sponsors and we’ll give them a shout out soon too. In the meantime, please continue to support our sponsors wherever you can. Thanks!
Three cheers for our sponsors!
April 22, 2012 by Bryan Tasaka | No Comments on RYDERS EYEWEAR FIRST ON THE MOMAR PODIUM
At MOMAR, we LOVE being able to provide our participants with high quality and functional swag, and Ryders Eyewear is no exception.
Ryders’ glasses are athlete tested, taking into consideration changing light and weather conditions, helmet interferences, and head position. They use flexible, lightweight, anti-slip frames, with UV protection. They are multidisciplinary glasses, perfect for MOMAR racers.
As a Series Sponsor of the MOMAR, we are really pleased to be giving away a pair of Ryders glasses with interchangeable lenses to each first place category winner!
We are very happy to announce that Merrell, internationally recognized leaders in performance outdoor and active lifestyle shoes and apparel, has signed on as the Presenting Sponsor of the Atmosphere Mind Over Mountain Adventure Racing Series (MOMAR) for a second year.
“We are very excited to renew our partnership with the MOMAR for 2012,” says Christian Triquet, President of Merrell Canada. “Our performance gear is inspired by active, adventurous, outdoor-loving people, which are inherent qualities of MOMAR racers. From beginner to professional, we encourage everyone to get outdoors. We create the gear to get you going faster and further, in comfort.”
The main part of this year’s agreement includes giving Merrell technical tops to every racer and volunteer. Of course, we’ll still design a great graphic to screen on the shirt that will make you look awesome on your future training runs. You can even wear it on race day if you like. We’ll even have female sizing too. This is a great benefit to all of our participants as the value is well over $40 per shirt.
Last year, Merrell gave away a ton of great prizes at the finish liine so expect more of the same with over $2000 worth of Merrell product to be given away at each race.
