Point6, makers of premium merino wool socks engineered to deliver the ultimate in performance and comfort, is proud to show its support for the sixth annual Run Rabbit Run 50 mile Ultra Marathon, and the first annual Run Rabbit Run 100 mile Ultra Marathon, in Steamboat Springs this month.

Both races are part of the Montrail Cup Series, and cover 150 combined miles through the Routt National Forest and Emerald Mountain. The 100 Miler starts on Friday, Sept. 14th with runners climbing approximately 20,000 feet throughout the 35 hour race. The 50 Miler kicks off Saturday, Sept. 15th with 9,000 feet of climbing in 15 hours. All runners will receive a free pair of Point6 performance merino running socks guaranteed to maximize performance and comfort for long miles.

Founded in 2008, Point6's performance merino running socks have quickly become a favorite among ultra runners and endurance athletes. From long-distance ultra marathons and trail runs, to hard and fast intervals on the track, Point6 running socks are engineered to endure miles of repetitive force without interfering with high-tech running shoes or impairing circulation.

“We're excited to be a part of Run Rabbit Run,” noted Katie Hughes, sales and marketing coordinator for Point6. “Running is an extremely important category for us, and we're proud to show our support for these amazing athletes. Running and climbing over long-distances at altitude is no small feat, but we hope our high-tech merino running socks will provide comfort and enhance the experience for participants.”

Point6 running socks offer sport-specific cushioning, rugged durability and stabilizing properties designed to maximize performance and comfort. Knit-in Achilles and arch braces ensure a snug, secure fit and extra support whether for trail, road, treadmill, or track. Extra-light cushioning is strategically placed under foot, where runners need it most, for a performance, comfortable fit. Mesh ventilation panels enhance breathability and moisture management for warm days and prevent chaffing, hot spots and blisters.

Proudly made in the USA, Point6 exclusively uses 100-percent compact spun merino yarns for running socks with unsurpassed durability and luxurious softness. Point6 sources only the highest quality merino wool, combined with advanced knitting and sock construction techniques, for a signature fit and long-lasting comfort.
