Mt. Airy, North Carolina — SwimRun, the endurance race format that alternates between swimming and running, is about to take the US endurance racing community by storm. Farm to Feet, makers of 100% American socks, will be the official sock of the inaugural SwimRun North Carolina event in Hanging Rock, NC, on October 30.
“SwimRun NC is one of the first swimrun events in the country and to have it our backyard is something special,” said David Petri, Farm to Feet VP marketing.
The SwimRun format includes teams of two athletes who have to be within 10 meters of each other at all time. The courses vary in length as do the overland and swim legs distances. SwimRun North Carolina will run through out Hanging Rock State Park with the swim legs taking place in the park’s lake or on the Dan River.
Along with staying within 10 meters of each other at all times the competitors have a number of mandatory and optional gear they must carry with them through out the event. Athletes can use swim aids, such as fins or hand paddles, but must have them with them at all times.
Farm to Feet will provide each participant with a pair of its 100% American socks.
