Outdoor escapes to turn your adventure daydreams into reality
Connecting urbanites with the wonders of the great outdoors and providing them the opportunity to learn lifelong skills and hobbies that also maximize the experience, the CamelBak Pursuit Series (www.pursuitseries.co) arrives in 2017 to encourage people to reconnect with nature and reap the benefits of the natural environment. LEKI is proud to announce its inclusion as a trekking pole partner of the CamelBak Pursuit Series, and will offer clinics and hands-on experience for those who are interested in the benefits of using poles on the trails.
The three-day CamelBak Pursuit Series events are turning Instagram envy into reality, creating an outdoors experience like no other, where at each CamelBak Pursuit Series event, attendees, which are also known as Pursuers, will play hard, have fun and learn all of the outdoor activities and skills they’ve always dreamt about. Located conveniently just outside the urban hubs of Salt Lake City, UT and San Francisco, CA, the series’ inaugural year will see the two three-day event series touch down just north of Salt Lake City at Snowbasin Mountain Resort, UT on Aug. 11-13 and in Sanborn County Park, CA, just 50 miles south of San Francisco on Sept. 8-10.
Inclusive and hands-on, this new summit of exploration, connectivity and unforgettable activities is brought to you by The Outbound Collective (www.theoutbound.com), the world’s fastest growing online outdoor and travel community, and CamelBak (www.camelbak.com), an outdoor industry leader and pioneer of hand-free of hydration. LEKI is proud to be the trekking pole partner for the CamelBak Pursuit Series, allowing Pursuers to immerse themselves in hiking with poles to get the most out of their adventures.
“The Pursuit Series is the perfect way to unplug from every day life and connect to the outdoors in a supportive and educational environment,” says Greg Wozer, VP LEKI USA. “We are eager to share our knowledge with Pursuers this summer and be a part of the experience from beginning to end.”
Pursuit Series Co-Founder Julia Stamps Mallon emphasizes that, “CamelBak Pursuit Series is about showcasing the beautiful accessibility of the outdoors, so whether you’re a camper or a glamper, downhill mountain-biker or a SUP boarder, there’s an amazing activity and an enlightening experience for you. Our aim is to inspire a connection to nature, and LEKI gives Pursuers the opportunity to engage with trekking poles in the most authentic, enjoyable and educational way possible.”
