THE PLAINS, VA – July 2022 - STRIDER and Five Rings Eventing are pleased to announce they will again partner in support of the upcoming MARS Great Meadow International (MARSGMI), to be held August 25-28, 2022. Five Rings Eventing (FRE), founded by Darrin Mollett and David O’Connor, is the organizer of MARSGMI, a high-performance three-day eventing competition and community event held annually at The Great Meadow Foundation in The Plains, Virginia.

“We’re delighted to again partner with STRIDER to support our competitors and spectators,” said Darrin Mollett of FRE. “As MARSGMI continues to draw more and more international competitors, we know we can count on STRIDER’s digital solutions to help us scale event participation across the community.”

As part of the partnership, MARSGMI will use Strider’s patent-pending StriderPlus solution to easily collect digital signatures on required liability releases from both competitors and spectators. StriderPlus enables venues to convert any paper release to a digital format that can be conveniently signed from a cell phone or desktop device, without the need for a special app or software.

“We’re proud to return this year as a Silver Sponsor of MARSGMI. We are dedicated to supporting community access from the grassroots through the highest levels of equestrian sport. As we expand STRIDER’s services to overseas markets, it is a natural fit to again support MARSGMI’s top caliber international eventing competition and commitment to community involvement,” said STRIDER CEO Tara Swersie.

For 2022 MARSGMI will again offer general admission day and weekend passes as well as a variety of tailgate options for spectators. Shopping, gourmet food vendors, and exciting competition at the top levels of eventing will make MARSGMI 2022 an incredible weekend for the whole community.
