BROOKLYN, N.Y., March 18, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Mudderella, the company curating outdoor obstacle courses for women by women, announced today a national apparel sponsorship with Athleta, the premium fitness fashion brand for the woman who sees fitness as vital to her life, for its 2014 events. The partnership designates Athleta as the official apparel brand for Mudderella's 2014 events across the U.S., and officially aligns the two like-minded brands with a focus on empowering women to "Own Your Strong."
"We are thrilled to share the news of our relationship with Athleta," said Cristina DeVito, CEO of Mudderella. "The Mudderella brand is all about empowering women to take pride in their strength inside and out, and Athleta's products bring this ethos to life. We're excited to take both brands to the next level through continued mutual support and promotion."
Through an integrated partnership, Athleta will sponsor Mudderella's signature pre-event Stretch + Strengthen, where participants get warmed up and pumped up for the event, as well as a branded on-site activation. Athleta will support Mudderella's seven nationwide events through in-store promotions, including pre-event packet pick-up at select locations. Customers are encouraged to keep an eye out for Mudderella / Athleta social co-promotions and additional opportunities to be shared in the coming months.
"At Athleta, we're inspired every day by our amazing customers, who love to take on new challenges," said Tess Roering, VP of Marketing and Creative for Athleta. "We are thrilled to partner with Mudderella for the 2014 season of events and bring together Athleta's 'Power to the She' campaign with 'Own Your Strong' to help women achieve their personal goals and be their best selves."
Encouraging women to "Own Your Strong," Mudderella inspires participants to test strength, stamina, and willpower by completing a 5-7 mile long course featuring 12-15 obstacles focused on full-body fitness, balance and agility. Mudderella events encourage participants to take on a new challenge and get outside for a high-energy, daylong experience to be shared with like-minded, strong women. Teamwork is essential to completing the course; the events are about people coming together to overcome obstacles and have fun. Registration is now open for seven Mudderella events nationwide.
