Northfield, VT April 13, 2006 Darn Tough Vermont, the Premium All Weather Performance Sock, to sponsor the Vasque Ultra Running Team.

Darn Tough Vermont socks are designed, tested, and manufactured in the Green Mountains of Vermont. Our socks will withstand the rigors of outdoor activities like no other. We knit using premium fine gauge yarns with high density knitting techniques to create a sock with superior durability and cushioning without bulk. Our guarantee says it all: “If our performance socks aren't the most comfortable and durable socks you've ever owned, return them for your money back.”

The Vasque Ultra Running team is comprised of 18 athletes that compete in premier trail running events nationally. In the inaugural 2004 season the Vasque team took home top five finishes in 47 races, winning 18 and setting course records in 8. In 2005 the Vasque team won 27 races. The 2006 season has begun by continuing this successful trend. Team member Jorge Pacheco recently won the Rocky Raccoon 100 Miler by a margin of 1:40 running the second fastest 100 mile trail run in history.

Darn Tough Vermont is proud to be involved with the Vasque Ultra Running Team and the other fine sponsors which include Cloudveil, Suunto, Ultimate Directions, ProTech Sunscreen, Black Diamond, and Rudy Project. Darn Tough Vermont looks forward to this partnership and the feedback this elite team of athletes will provide us to ensure that our products continue to be the most comfortable and durable performance socks available.
