with the World for a chance to win an Airstream Basecamp X
BOSTON, MA (January 24, 2019) – Airstream, innovative maker of the iconic “silver bullet” travel trailer, rolls into Spartan events across the U.S. as the brand that’s built for adventure, teams-up with the world’s largest obstacle race and endurance brand to inspire the nation and give away a brand new 2019 Basecamp X travel trailer. The #SpartanConfessionals Airstream Giveaway encourages Spartan athletes of all skill-levels and backgrounds to share their transformational stories and the inspiration that drives them to race, both on-site and via social media.
To enter the contest, racers participating in Spartan’s upcoming events in Southern California January 26 – 27, Arizona February 9 – 10, Las Vegas March 9 - 10 and San Jose March 16 - 17 can rest and recover from the race in a spacious Airstream with comfortable amenities and healthy snacks while discussing their experience in front of a camera. Spartans can also enter by posting their story on social media using the hashtag #SpartanConfessionals and tagging @Spartan. One winner will be selected at random and announced at the San Jose race.
“Spartan athletes from all over the world have overcome great obstacles in their lives, both on and off the course, and working with Airstream to share their stories is a natural fit given our shared passion for adventure and healthy living,” said Spartan CEO and founder Joe De Sena. “Together, Spartan and Airstream want to inspire positive transformation and we are excited to work with the iconic brand.”
Whether it is losing weight, overcoming addiction, fighting through the loss of a loved one or battling an injury, Spartans have incredible, inspirational stories to share and Spartan and Airstream want to hear them all.
“As a brand that encourages consumers to get outdoors, be active and thrive in positive community environments, we are delighted to partner with Spartan on this Giveaway,” said Bob Wheeler, President and CEO of Airstream. “Each of us has had obstacles to overcome – we are looking forward to the racers’ inspiring stories. Our Basecamp line is made for exploration and is built tough, like Spartan athletes, and we hope the winner of this Giveaway will utilize this trailer to tap into their adventurous side.”
Spartan events focus on sport, athleticism and transformation, pushing the bodies and minds of competitors to the limit across miles of unforgiving terrain while they conquer signature obstacles such as the Spear Throw, Bucket Brigade and Barbed Wire Crawl.
