The MFS 4405 Race-a-thon for Land Use

Much like a walk-a-thon, individuals can pledge any amount per mile made by Travis Carpenter in the grueling 135 mile off road race on February 12th. Furthermore, pledges can be made to any land use organization of the contributor’s choice. For example, a pledge of 25 cents a mile would amount to $33.75 if Travis completes the entire race.

While many individuals are donating smaller pledges, companies such as 4Wheel Parts Wholesalers and Motorsport Fabrication Services have pledged upwards of $8,200 each. The race-a-thon has also expanded to other drivers in the race, one example being the Tin Benders 4x4 club pledging on their own drivers for a possible $8,200.

Pledges are being tracked on, the largest 4x4 website in the world, and pledges can be made by e-mailing the amount per mile, the driver, and the organization to be donated to at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Billed as the “toughest one day off road race on the planet,” the Griffin King of the Hammers ( has quickly become one of the biggest events in off-roading. With a mix of go-fast desert racing and hard-core rock crawling, the endurance race has attracted 100 of the most accomplished drivers in Rock-sports competitions.
