Getting “Down and Dirty”: Subaru of America Drives into the Mud: Subaru and MESP, Inc. partner on Mud Run Series

Getting “Down and Dirty”: Subaru of America Drives into the Mud

Subaru and MESP, Inc. partner on Mud Run Series


Agoura Hills, CA (February 2011) – MESP, Inc. is proud to announce a multi-year partnership with Subaru of America, Inc. as the Presenting Sponsor of the Merrell Down & Dirty National Mud Run Series, held annually in nine cities across the nation. Subaru will be the Official Automobile partner for the series. “Subaru and MESP, Inc. share the same drive and passion for outdoor activities,” states Michael Epstein, president of MESP, Inc. “the partnership will be a perfect fit because of their unique identity with active lifestyle consumers and their willingness to help this unique consumer achieve their thirst for fun, fitness, friendship and adventure.”

The Merrell Down & Dirty National Mud Run Series presented by Subaru consists of nine events in major cities around the country in which athletes compete in 5k and 10k runs through a fun off-road, muddy course with military style obstacles. This unique event has proven to test participants in conquering several challenges and mud pits on their way to the finish line all while supporting the troops through Operation Gratitude. Operation Gratitude, the series official charity partner, is an organization that sends individual care packages enclosed with snacks, entertainment items and personal appreciation letters to U.S. Service Members deployed overseas.

Subaru recently announced its own PR (personal record) with another year of record sales in 2010. “Given the reliability and durability of our all-wheel drive products, Subaru owners continue to be passionate about outdoor events,” said Tim Mahoney, senior vice president and chief marketing officer for Subaru of America. “This in turn drives our commitment to support runners, hikers and other outdoor enthusiasts, and it’s why this partnership is a great fit.”

Subaru owners also seek new outdoor experiences. “This run provides a very unique race opportunity,” says Melissa Trotto, outdoor lifestyle sports marketing coordinator for Subaru. “Through this partnership, we will help people meet their fitness goals and have fun at the same time.”
