Connecting urbanites with the wonders of the great outdoors and providing them the opportunity to learn lifelong skills and hobbies that also maximize the experience, the CamelBak Pursuit Series (www.pursuitseries.co) arrives in 2017 to encourage people to reconnect with nature and reap the benefits of the natural environment. Granite Gear is proud to announce its inclusion as the backpack partner of the CamelBak Pursuit Series, leading classes for participants of all hiking levels throughout the event. Offering two to three backpacking classes per day, Granite Gear ambassadors will guide participants on a hike and cover details around efficient packing, appropriate attire and layering and ideal foods to eat while on trail.

The three-day CamelBak Pursuit Series events are turning Instagram envy into reality, creating an outdoors experience like no other, where at each CamelBak Pursuit Series event, attendees, which are also known as Pursuers, will play hard, have fun and learn all of the outdoor activities and skills they’ve always dreamt about. Located conveniently just outside the urban hubs of Salt Lake City, UT and San Francisco, CA, the series’ inaugural year will see the two three-day event series touch down just north of Salt Lake City at Snowbasin Mountain Resort, UT on Aug. 11-13 and in Sanborn County Park, CA, just 50 miles south of San Francisco on Sept. 8-10. Featuring a fully customizable itinerary and options, you can; camp, glamp or rent; hike, bike or SUP. The choice is yours and the choices are endless.

Inclusive and hands-on, this new summit of exploration, connectivity and unforgettable activities is brought to you by The Outbound Collective (www.theoutbound.com), the world’s fastest growing online outdoor and travel community, and CamelBak (www.camelbak.com), an outdoor industry leader and pioneer of hand-free of hydration.

“Our ambassadors and class leaders are looking forward to interacting with the engaging audience that Pursuit Series will attract,” says Rob Coughlin, VP of Granite Gear. “In the end, we just want to help hikers confidently get on the trail and safely enjoying the great outdoors.”

Pursuit Series Co-Founder Julia Stamps Mallon emphasizes that, “CamelBak Pursuit Series is about showcasing the beautiful accessibility of the outdoors, so whether you’re a camper or a glamper, downhill mountain-biker or a SUP boarder, there’s an amazing activity and an enlightening experience for you. Our aim is to inspire a connection to nature, and Granite Gear gives Pursuers the opportunity to engage with hikers in the most authentic, enjoyable and educational way possible.”
