(Bozeman, MT—December 5, 2014)—Oboz Footwear is seeking ambitious hikers and adventurers to apply to join Oboz’ 2015 Trail Team. The grassroots ambassadors—who will be selected early in 2015—will share their experiences via Oboz’ blog, so the company is interested in finding passionate outdoor enthusiasts who are eager and adept at communicating their tales.
Candidates for the 2015 Oboz Trail Team will be based in North America, but their adventures may take them anywhere in the world. Interested hikers can apply online at https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/H6CGYHS. The deadline for application is December 19, 2014.
“We love hearing from Oboz fans, ” said Josh Fairchilds, co-founder and Vice President of Oboz. “Our new Trail Team of damn good hikers will deliver some great stories about wild places, corners of the world we’ve never seen, summits we haven’t climbed, and hopefully some amusing misadventures. We look forward to bringing these new voices and their tales to the Oboz community.”
Over the yearlong ambassadorship, each Oboz Trail Team member will relay their adventures on the “Trail Tales” blog and also engage with Oboz fans via social media. In return, the company will outfit team members with footwear and other goodies, as well as a one-time discounted purchase for a friend or family member.
