THE PLAINS, Virginia – August 2021 – STRIDER and Five Rings Eventing announced today a partnership to support the upcoming MARS Great Meadow International (MARSGMI) in The Plains, VA on August 19-22, 2021. MARSGMI is a high-performance three-day eventing competition held annually at the Great Meadow Foundation in The Plains, Virginia.

Last year, MARSGMI successfully implemented the “Great Meadow Model” to run a safe event during the pandemic, using STRIDER’s patent-pending eWaiver technology. Strider’s eWaiver service enables participants to easily access and sign liability releases with any cell phone.The contactless system then automatically reports and organizes attendee release signatures for the show organizer.

“STRIDER is proud to again support MARSGMI with eWaivers.MARSGMI has always been committed to safety for riders, grooms, coaches, officials, and spectators. We’re looking forward to an amazing eventing competition that the whole community gets to enjoy.” stated Tara Swersie, CEO of STRIDER.

Returning for 2021, MARSGMI will offer general admission weekend passes as well as fabulous tailgate options for spectators. Limited vendors, a wine vendor, and food trucks have been invited to enhance the spectator experience. Catering is also offered by Salamander Market.

“This partnership is critical to this event,” said Darrin Mollett of Five Rings Eventing, “There are so many moving parts in putting on these events that anything that helps make things easier for organizers and competitors is so beneficial.”
