Thank you so much for your consideration in becoming a sponsor.  We offer several levels of involvement and would be happy to discuss them with you.  Please email (info@thegoosechase.org) or call (423-946-0519) and we will be happy to create a package that fits your business needs.

We did offer a hand cycle event for several years.  However, the participation level declined to only one cyclist per year.  The decision was made by several within our organization to discontinue this race option.  We support our hand cyclist and wish them the best.

Total of 6 hydration stations. Each exchange area will offer a hydration station and then there will be additional stations along the course.
