Wigwam Official Sock Sponsor of Colorado’s Largest Trail Race Series
Sheboygan, Wisconsin, Thursday, April 17, 2014 – Wigwam, The Performance Sock Company is excited to announce a new sponsorship as the Official Sock of the Endurance Race Series in the beautiful state of Colorado.
“When it comes down to deciding on the best events for Wigwam to be involved in, we not only look at the event itself, but also the people running it. I have known Craig Mintzlaff in the industry and respect him and the efforts he has put behind this race series. We make the best socks in the world for trail running and are excited to introduce them to the best trail runners in Colorado and beyond.” Natalie Stangl, Wigwam’s Brand Marketing Manager.
The race series will be using Wigwam Ultimax socks as age group awards, raffle prizes, and promotional items during all nine races scheduled throughout the state. Wigwam’s patented Ultimax technology is a moisture management system that moves moisture from the foot-bottom up and out of the sock leaving your feet dry and blister-free.
“I am excited to be involved with the 2014 Endurance Race Series. This series is directly in line with the values Wigwam holds dear. It is nine events geared toward the competitive runner, avid runner and trail beginner in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. While being fun and picturesque the events will dish out all the challenge runners are looking for. Oh yea…there’s a great party after.” Joe Bartels, Principal Rep, Mountain States Rep Group.
“We are glad to have Wigwam socks aboard as a new sponsor to the series. Their products are some of the best in the industry to withstand the grueling impact and terrain our runners will be enduring during the series.” Craig Mintzlaff, Race Director.
