Black Squirrel Sponsors

We hope for close-to-normal conditions on race day, as related to the COVID-19 pandemic. Current race information reflects a normal year.  Details may change as race day approaches, and any changes will be communicated to registered runners well in advance.  For reference, here are the 2020 COVID Safety Protocols.

Our races are made possible with the generous help of our fantastic sponsors. We primarily seek to work with local Fort Collins and Mountain West companies that share a passion for sustainability, quality and active lifestyles. All companies, products and individuals that sponsor our events are entities, goods and people that we believe in, can honestly endorse and are happy to promote.

To inquire about sponsorship opportunities, please email us at racedirector@gnarrunners.com.
