EX2 Adventures: Sponsors

Please Support Our Sponsors!
Producing quality events is a team effort and our sponsors are a very important member of that team.  Sponsors help keep registration fees as low as possible and enable us to supply racers and volunteers with plenty of great swag.  For these sponsorships to succeed, it is crucial that we support the sponsors who support us.  So remember, when the time comes to purchase gear or services, please choose our sponsors, tell them about your connection to EX2, and thank them personally for helping to keep local racing alive and well!
