Red Wing, MN – Staying true to the authenticity of the mountain lifestyle, Vasque is partnering with GoPro Mountain Games as the official footwear for the country’s largest celebration of adventure sports, art and music for the second year in a row. The event will be held in Vail, CO, June 4-7, 2015, and will include sporting events such as trail, mud and long distance running, mountain and road biking, World Cup bouldering, fly fishing and a variety of kayaking events.
“The Go Pro Mountain Games was a great event for us in 2014,” states Julie Quinn, Marketing Manager of Vasque. “Vasque is dedicated to the trail and being a part of the GoPro Mountain Games gives us an opportunity to connect with outdoor enthusiasts.”
This year attendees can stop by the Vasque booth to take an all new spirit animal quiz to find the animal that is within them on the trail. Those who take the quiz will receive a Spirit Animal HooRag. On Sunday, runners are invited to lace up their trail running shoes and compete in one of the toughest 10Ks in the country, the Vasque 10K Spring Run-Off, a 10K at 9000 feet with challenging mountainous terrain.
