Michelin North America is now taking nominations for the 2013 BFGoodrich Outstanding Trails program.
Off-road clubs in the U.S. and Canada may now submit trails in their area that they believe are worthy of a grant for maintenance or refurbishing. Nominations may be made via Facebook or Twitter. Trails are selected based on uniqueness, terrain type and enthusiast following.
“Off-road communities demonstrate true enthusiasm for the sport and passion for our products,” said Rodrigo Alonso, BFGoodrich light truck brand category manager. “Being able to give back to this community by helping maintain and refurbish off-road playgrounds is our way of showing appreciation.”
Now in its eighth year, the Outstanding Trails program is conducted in collaboration with Tread Lightly! and the United Four Wheel Drive Associations (UFWDA) and is dedicated to the responsible use and preservation of off-road trails while promoting the trails’ conservation efforts. To date, the program has awarded more than $100,000 in grants to 30 off-road trails nominated by 29 clubs throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Dealers and consumers can visit BFGoodrich’s Facebook page (facebook.com/bfgoodrichtires) or Twitter handle (@bfgoodrichtires) by Jan. 31, 2013, to post their nominations for trails to be considered for the competition. Three trails will be selected and the winners announced at the Easter Jeep Safari on March 31, 2013.
