Chattanooga, TN — Today, the RootsRated and Marmot “road warriors” set off on the Fall in the Love with the Outside Road Tour. Jake Wheeler and Ry Glover set out from Chattanooga for the first leg of a three-month retail tour that begins tomorrow in New York City at Paragon Sports. Using the hashtag #LoveTheOutside, the two will be creating content along the way and engaging with outdoor enthusiasts across the country. Outdoorists can follow along with the hashtag as well as on the road tour website at http://tour.rootsrated.com.

RootsRated Associate Editor Ry Glover (who is also the live musician at each one of the grassroots pint night events) had this to say: “We're beyond elated to be partnering with Marmot for the Fall in Love with the Outside Road Tour. In short, this tour really does encapsulate everything both RootsRated and Marmot love about the outdoors and the outdoor lifestyle. While that’s an easy word to throw around these days, we really do mean it. Community, conservation, and conversations about where to go outdoors... it all comes into play. And when you pair this with with acoustic covers and craft beer, well, it’s an award-winning combination, and we can’t wait to get started!”

Each event will include not only live music and craft beer but also tent pitching contests, outdoor trivia, a photo booth with the Marmot mascot, and conversation-filled evenings about where and how to access the best experiences in the Great Outdoors. Donations collected at each event will go towards benefitting local conservation groups.

A suggested $5 donation at the door will help raise money for local conservation groups of the selected retailer’s choosing. In addition to helping local conservation causes, attendees will receive a pint jar from Ball and craft beer from Lagunitas Brewing Company as well as the chance to win great outdoor gear and apparel from Marmot.
