PRESS RELEASE FOR March 20, 2010
March 20, 2010
Wausau24 will be held on July 31- August 1st, 2010 at Nine Mile Forest in Wausau Wisconsin.
Muddy Paws Racing is working directly with the Marathon County Park department to use the Nine Mile Forest trails including lodge rental and all logistical support from the county for this race weekend.
MPR is a Wisconsin event promotion group focused on “promoting dirt in the Midwest.”
Full details including registration and event schedule will be available at Wausau24.com April 2nd, 2010. Updates are currently being posted to the facebook group “Wausau24 hour MTB race”. We invite the racing community to provide us with feedback to make this a fun and professional event. The goal in 2010 is to provide an excellent racing experience to all participants, make the entry structure competitive, and have everyone heading home with a smile and marking their calendars for the event in 2011.
MPR is working with an excellent team of professionals to make this happen.
Peak Timing, owned by Greg Blasko, is a well-known and respected timing company that has the contracts for such events as the Lifetime Tri, the Birkie, and the MNMBS series. We will use “chip timing” for all participants, the best for error free and accurate results throughout the event.
Matt Block will be our course manager. Matt has worked with the Marathon County parks for years and has a great working relationship with county park management. He has set the course for the Trek Classic the past two years and again for the event to be held on Memorial weekend this year.
TST Media will host and develop our race website wausau24.com, as well as handle all online registration. There will be no additional charges for processing online registration. Discounted rates will be available for early registration as well as a free chance to win a Trek Travel trip to anywhere in the lower 48 states for each entry prior to May 20th, 2010.
Muddy Paws Racing will host the event and serve as race promoter for the Wausau24. MPR is owned by Adam Schmidt, a race promoter for over 15 years and based in Wisconsin. MPR is the promoter for the WORS Trek Classic held at Nine Mile Forest over Memorial weekend this year. MPR also hosts the WORS/MNMBS Border Battle, MNMBS Lifetime Avalanche, and MNMBS Wheelhouse Classic event.
The clock it ticking and MPR is up to the challenge. We are asking the racing community to speak up early and let us know what you want. After all, the event is here for the racers, so let’s make 2010 a great one.
