Involvement with the American Hiking Society's 14th Annual National Trails Day ¬ June 3, 2006 ¬ is one of the many steps THOR•LO, Inc. takes towards preserving the nation's trails and recreational areas.

This year, the American Hiking Society, together with THOR•LO, sponsored over 1200 National Trails Day events nationwide. Events included: trail construction and repair; trail clean-ups, interpretive hikes, celebrations, 5K runs and marathons.

Thorlos Outdoor Product Manager, Deb Lazenby, comments on the company¹s dedication to preservation. “We believe that the more people participate, the more they will enjoy and understand the need for preserving and protecting our trails. National Trails Day is an important and inspirational event, and we are proud to be a sponsor. Thorlos sock products keep hikers' feet comfortable and healthy while hitting the trails.”
