Washington NH, Jerimoth Hill RI, Mt. Frissell CT, Mount Grey Lock Mass, and finishing on Mt. Mansfield in his home state of Vermont.

“We embody speed and performance in all of our activities”, said Jim lamancusa, Director of Sales and Marketing for Dynafit. “Having Marshall do this on his own without any support proves that we stand behind the best athletes in the world”.

Thomson is joined by Eric Carter and Meredith June Edwards to create the Dynafit elite Summer athlete team.

Eric Carter a Pacific North West Sky Runner and recent speed skier on Rainer is quickly becoming the fastest man from sea to sky. While Meredith June Edwards, first place finisher at the High Sierra 50k and long distance runner from Jackson Hole continues to reach the podium across the country.

“There is so much more potential in mountain running that I am driven to explore,” said Marshall. “My goal for the next few years is to run as much as possible while pushing the limits of possibility. I am psyched to be aligned with Dynafit as I take the next steps in my career.”

For more than 30 years Dynafit has teamed up with the world’s finest mountaineers, alpinists, climbers, skiers, and endurance adventurers who have defined the limits of what is humanly possible. Dynafit works closely with Research, Design & Development, creating innovative designs that push new technologies and inspire cutting-edge products.
