We've starting fundraising on Patreon to secure the future of SleepMonsters, of our brand of adventure race reporting and news coverage, and of the archive of AR history we hold on the site. (It's the only history of adventure racing there is.)
In recent years any advertising revenue has dropped to nothing and the costs of running a professional site have risen considerably, and that's without accounting for the work we put in. (And it's a lot.)
So we're asking you to support us with a subscription through Patreon, in the way you would a magazine or any other publication.
It's a team sport and we've gone solo for too long now, so we're asking you join 'Team SleepMonsters' and enable us to keep going, and to improve the website.
We believe Adventure Racing needs an independent voice and news hub, and as part of the Patreon programme we aim to give you the inside track on what's going on behind the scenes at SleepMonsters and also give you a say on new developments and services on the website.
However, our first target is to get 100 supporters and we've called it the SOS level – that's Save Our SleepMonsters.
You can read all about it on our Patreon page at www.patreon.com/SleepMonsters
You'll also be able to read our Patreon blog there and the first entry is 'A New Adventure', which explains a bit more about who we are and what we do.
Please take a look and give us your support. We look forward to welcoming you to Team SleepMonsters.
