Help getting sponsorship…

We realise it’s not easy breaking into the professional world of outdoor sports.  The British Mountaineering Council have been lobbying for many years for more funding and increased status of outdoor sports, so we know it’s not easy.

We can help you increase your profile…

If you’re an amateur outdoor sports person we might be able to give you the leg up that you need to increase your profile and get sponsored by one of the big outdoor brands out there. Being seen to be actively in the public limelight is a major advantage.

We can get up to 50,000 visitors or more through our site each month, so although we do not have the budgets to provide financial sponsorship, we will be more than happy to help you raise your profile by plugging your achievements, your ambitions, and anything else for that matter via the CheapTents.com blog!

For example, we posted profiles about climbers Mike Dunne and Paul Roberts when they contacted us, after they read this post!

Already Sponsored?

If you are already sponsored by an outdoor gear manufacturer, then why not increase your profile some more and blog for us?!  It will help keep them sweet by providing ongoing exposure in a very prominent way and encourages their continued support.  Sounds good doesn’t it?

    Hi my name is Mark Gillott I am a young ambitious climber who is looking for someone to support me and help me flourish in a sport that I love. I do eventually intend to do some large climbs I just need that little push in the right direction.
    Every one has a dream, a vision and a cause and as complicated, common or over the top it may seem I do wish to set foot on Everest’s summit in the name of “Help the Heroes” a charity set up to help the injured and wounded soldiers in Afghanistan and Iraq.
    Any people with interest in me please get in touch.

    On the 31st of July 2010 I will be undertaking the Welsh 3000’s challenge for both the Huntington ’s Disease association & the Alzheimer’s Association.

    In order to complete the Welsh 3000s Challenge I am required to summit the top of all 15 of the mountains over 3000 ft in Wales, within the space of 24 hours, without using any form of transport.

    The route itself is about 28 miles with roughly 3500 meters of ascent and takes in the following summits over 3 distinct mountain ranges:

    Snowdon Massif: Snowdon (1,085 m), Garnedd Ugain (1,065 m), Crib Goch (923 m)

    Glyderau: Elidir Fawr (924 m), Y Garn (947 m), Glyder Fawr (999 m), Glyder Fach (994 m), Tryfan (915 m), Castell y Gwynt (972m)

    Carneddau: Pen yr Ole Wen (978 m), Carnedd Dafydd (1,044 m), Carnedd Llewelyn (1,064 m), Yr Elen (962 m), Foel Grach (976 m), Foel-fras (942 m)

    After camping on the summit of Snowdon the night before the challenge, I will be setting off at first light & cracking on until the job is done, hopefully within the 17 hour target time I have set myself.

    I am fairly new to hill walking, taking in my first peak (snowdon) just under 2 years ago.

    Any help, guidance, donations etc. would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks

    Craig Robson

    Good luck with the challenge Craig!

    Its going to be physically though climbing all 15 peaks in 17 hours, so our best advice would be to pace yourself and make sure you have plenty of high energy snacks.

    If anybody else has any good advice for Craig please leave a comment, especially if you have done the Welsh 3000s Challenge yourself.

    Here is a little information about the diseases, and links to the associations that Craig is raising money for.

    Huntington’s disease (HD) is an hereditary disorder of the central nervous system. The symptoms of Huntington’s disease usually develop when people are between 30-50 years old and include uncontrollable muscular movements, lack of concentration, short-term memory lapses and changes of mood. For more information please visit the Huntington’s Disease Association website.

    Alzheimer’s disease is a brain disorder which destroys brain cells, causing memory loss and problems with thinking. Alzheimer’s gets worse over time, and it is fatal. For more information please visit the Alzheimer’s Association website.

  • Adam Moorcroft

    My name is Adam Moorcroft. I am 17yrs old and studying outdoor education at college at the moment. Iam a keen canoeist having been on the England canoe slalom race and training team for many years. I have taken a year out from slalom as I am now playing canoe polo, pushing my white water paddling along with pursuing my passion for the outdoors. I am at a point where I feel I need a bit of backing by sponsors to help me get to where I want to be as I am starting to struggle. The reason why you should sponsor me is that I am super keen to promote outdoor sports and company’s brand along with my own career. Due to my course and sports I am involved in I am in constant contact with potential customers. I was described by Desperate Measures canoe shop as “an excellent asset to any business in his chosen career path.”

    Any sponsorship would be a massive help no matter how big or small.
