Sponsor the Mountain Grind Race

Become a sponsor for the Mountain Grind

We are planning our fourth annual “Mountain Grind” which is a fitness challenge in and for Pender Harbour. Our race brings 300+ racers and over 150 family members and spectators to the Coast. With the success of our event,  the goal for 2018 is to have 350 participants and their spectators.

The “Mountain Grind” will be held at the Pender Harbour Lions Club April 21nd 2018. This event will include kids races, music, sponsor vendors, BBQ lunch and awards. The newly developed Sunshine Coast Trail will be a big part of the 10+ km race. There will be obstacles through out the trail to make the run unique and challenging for any participant.

Our goal is to promote the beautiful area and the businesses on the Sunshine Coast. This will be an annual event and therefore will continue to bring business here in the shoulder season.

By supporting our “Mountain Grind” race, you have a great opportunity to increase recognition of your business by both local residents and many Lower Mainland (and beyond) participants. Once visitors discover the beauty of our Coast, they will be back.
