Thanks for your interest in the 8th Annual Menlo Park Grand Prix. We're leveraging social media this year to help in sponsorship generation. This race is one of the most popular in northern CA and is the Elite and Master Women's State Championship race as well as part of the NCNCA Premier Series and NCNCA Women's Series. We also feature the only community children's race in Menlo Park -- the Menlo Park Mini Prix! With record numbers of racers and spectators, a fun sponsor expo with food trucks, free massage, and activities for the kids, the race is a fun, community event with lots of exposure available for sponsors.
To put it all together, we need your support! This year we've got 11 races on the day including FIVE (yes, five) women's races (pretty much unheard of in the world of criterium racing) plus super-fun kid's ride. Velo Girls is committed to promoting women's racing, but the smaller women's fields mean we need to generate even more sponsorship income to break even.
So we encourage you to get involved, at whatever level meets your needs. And, of course, if you prefer to do this in the good old-fashioned way, please email L[email redacted] for more information.
Thanks for stopping by! Whether or not you're able to financially support the Menlo Park Grand Prix, we hope you'll stop by to race or spectate on July 28th!
