Red Wing, MN – Dedicated to making purpose built footwear for the trail, family-owned Vasque is renewing its exclusive footwear sponsorship with BACKPACKER Magazine’s 2012 Get Out More Tour.

The 2012 Get Out More Tour will travel to 65 events in 36 states to bring the BACKPACKER basecamp to life. The tour’s hosts, Randy and Sheri Propster, will hike trails in different regions featured in BACKPACKER’s Destinations and National Park Guide. After their excursions, the Propsters will present an exciting, informative show at retailers across the US about their trip and how to best prepare for backpacking and hiking outings.

“Being fans of the Vasque brand and their boots for years, we are thrilled they have renewed their partnership with the tour,” states Randy Propster “We are excited for all the new adventures we will have in Vasque shoes this year.”

In addition, the Get Out More Tour will be making stops at Trail Days in Damascus, VA, Seek the Peak at Mt Washington, NH and a new festival for the tour, FloydFest in Floyd, VA.

“Vasque is looking forward to another successful year with the BACKPACKER Get Out More Tour,” says Vasque President/COO Dave Murphy. “The overwhelming response from our retailers last year was great and we’re sure the 2012 tour will continue to exceed our expectations.”
