    Columbus, Ohio – Do you have what it takes to be a slider? Then don’t miss your chance to enter to win a trip for two to the 2018 USA Luge Fantasy Camp in Lake Placid, NY. White CastleÒ is proud to team up with USA Luge for the nationwide Be A SliderÔ contest, searching for one bold Craver to experience what it takes to be a luge athlete from USA Luge coaches and athletes taking part in the winter events in Pyeonchang.

    Time to register is limited, with the contest ending Jan. 31, 2018. Entries may be made online at, and interactive contest submissions can be shared on social media using the hashtag #BeASliderContest.

    “Anyone who has dreamed of being a professional athlete for a day, here is your chance,” said Jamie Richardson, vice president of White Castle. “As a family-owned business, White Castle embraces bold moves, and there is no better way to showcase our bold Cravers than sending them to learn how to speed down an icy track on a luge sled from the USA Luge team in Lake Placid. Enter today for your chance to win the experience of a lifetime.”

    The grand prize winner will receive airfare, food, and other accommodations for them and a thrill-seeking guest to the 3-day USA Luge Fantasy Camp at the USA Luge’s home in Lake Placid, NY from April 6 – 8, 2018. They’ll also receive their own GoProÒ to capture incredible footage from this chance-of-a-lifetime advance and other White Castle swag.

    A part of the Games since 1964, luge consists of athletes sliding down a track of ice on sleds, feet first, at speeds of up to 90 miles per hour. In addition to five medals at the Games, USA Luge athletes, referred to as ‘sliders,’ have won almost 600 elite level and junior international medals since 1994, making the organization one of the most decorated National Governing Bodies in the United States.

    The nation’s two foremost slider experts, White Castle and USA Luge, announced a two-year partnership in April 2017, making White Castle the first and only restaurant brand in the United States to become an official partner of USA Luge and title sponsor of the off-season recruitment program, the White Castle USA Luge Slider Search.
