AVON, Ohio, Feb. 28, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Since 2010, over three million participants have tested their personal strength and endurance via Tough Mudder's obstacle course event series. In 2018, T-Rex® brand will now challenge these aggressive athletes to test its "ferociously strong" T-Rex® Tape – which exhibits these same strong and enduring qualities – as it becomes the official tape partner of Tough Mudder.
"Courageous. Active. Passionate. Tough. Bad-A$$! These are the words that embody both our T-Rex® Tape users and Tough Mudder participants," says Stephen Wagner, category manager at ShurTech Brands, LLC, the company that manufactures T-Rex® Tape. "We are excited to become a Tough Mudder sponsor knowing that just like our tape – these participants push the limits of extreme performance."
In 2018, T-Rex® Tape will sponsor events in 10 markets, including: Los Angeles, California; Miami, Florida; Central Texas; Oxford, Michigan; Boston, Massachusetts; Twin Cities, Minnesota; Chicago, Illinois; Toronto, Ontario; Seattle, Washington; and Atlanta, Georgia. In each city, Tough Mudder Nation will be challenged to muscle up and conquer the T-Rex®-branded, 10-foot-high vertical Berlin Walls.
Additionally, T-Rex® brand will be on-site in the Mudder Village, offering information on how the Ferociously Strong Tape can help you through all of life's obstacles – even Tough Mudder challenges, such as shoe laces that quit mid-race or bibs that can't handle the dirt. Socially, at each of the 10 T-Rex®-sponsored events, Mudders can enter for a chance to win a prize pack featuring products from T-Rex® brand and other premium brands. To enter, attendees can post a photo from the event on Twitter or Instagram tagging @TRexTape and using #TRexToughMudder and #Sweepstakes.
T-Rex® brand products are designed for projects and challenges that require intense strength, durability and holding power, no matter the application. Whether it's simple, around-the-house fixes, tough projects on your seasonal to-do list, on the jobsite, or moments in the great outdoors, there's no project too big or too small for these ferociously strong products. T-Rex® Tape has double-thick, super-aggressive adhesive which gives the tape a superior hold on more surfaces than other ordinary tapes – including rougher, dirtier – and "muddier" – surfaces in a wide range of temperatures and humidity levels. T-Rex® Tape is also made with UV- resistant materials which gives the tape its famed holding power – indoors or out.
"Tough Mudder is thrilled to welcome T-Rex® Tape to our family of sponsors in 2018," said Rich Abend, vice president of global partnerships. "Teaming up with the T-Rex® is exciting because the brand's evident, constant commitment to quality and rugged durability. We hope this is a relationship that 'sticks' this year and into the future."
