Why Be A CopperDog 150 Sponsor?

When you live in the Snow Capital of the world, it’s hard to get your message across in the middle of winter. Your market is bundled up and hunkered down. But becoming a sponsor of the CopperDog 150 Sled Dog Race offers a unique opportunity to reach thousands of people, not just in the immediate area and the Midwest, but in Colorado, Canada, Alaska, Maine, and even the world – and to reach them during one of the more dead times of the marketing calendar. With solid media coverage, the CopperDog 150 is the one event that puts the Keweenaw Peninsula on the map as a top tier winter sport destination.

As a CopperDog 150 sponsor you become part of a revolutionary race that is already an integral part of the community. We offer a variety of full-service packages that even the smallest local business can afford. And with our team of social media savants, web gurus, designers, and copy writers your business name, logo, and message will be seen by the people you want to reach. 


For more information on becoming a sponsor of the 2012 CopperDog 150 Sled Dog Race please contact us at sponsorship@copperdog150.com.  You can also send an e-mail to our Executive Director, Abbey Green.

Race Cancellation Policy

The CopperDog 150 relies on Mother Nature to provide safe and suitable trail conditions for our event.  Past experience has shown that we may need to change our trails, shorten the route, or make some other modification of the race to accommodate less-than-perfect conditions.  In the event of bad weather or poor trail conditions the CopperDog 150 will make every attempt to adapt the race as necessary.  Although it is very unlikely, it is possible that the race may need to cancelled entirely due conditions which are deemed unsafe.  If the race is cancelled, the CopperDog 150 will offer full or partial refunds of sponsor donations per the following policy.

Because of pre-race spending in preparation for the event, the CopperDog 150 may be unable to fully reimburse sponsors for all donated funds.  At the time of cancellation the CopperDog 150 will compare available funds raised during the season to the total donations received to determine the rate of refund that is possible.  For instance, if $10,000 of donations were received in the season and available funds is $8,000, the CopperDog 150 will offer an 80% refund rate to sponsors.  Alternatively, sponsors may decline the refund and have their sponsorship and support continue through to next season. 

Sponsors who elect to keep their funds invested in the CopperDog, will continue to be advertised and promoted by the CopperDog 150 web site up to and through the 2014/2015 season and race.  Sponsors who take the refund will be removed from the web site.
