Point6 is excited to show its support once again for our friends at Get Fit Family Racing, a local event production company based here in Steamboat Springs. GFFR's endurance series kicked off last weekend with the second annual Give it a Tri - Sprint Triathlon and Kids Race at the Old Town Hot Springs Pool with a pool swim, rolling hill bike ride and easy run course for athletes of all ages and abilities hoping to test their skills and endurance.
We had a blast cheering on the competitors and meeting everyone who came out for the event, especially the little groms getting after it on the course!
Each of the 150 or so participants received a pair of Point6 merino wool socks and we had giveaways and pro deals for attendees.
Get Fit Family Racing is co-founded by Heather Gollnick, a 5x Ironman Champion and esteemed member of the 2014 Point6 athlete ambassador team. Heather’s feedback field testing and reviewing Point6 running and cycling socks is invaluable for our product development, and we are thrilled to have her on the team! Heather’s IronEdge Triathlon Team, made up of 18 competitive triathletes have also been sporting Point6 socks and the reviews have been top notch.
Next up, the Steamboat Half Iron and Olympic Triathlon takes place this Sunday, June 29 for triathletes in training and seasoned competitors. Point6 will be onsite once again to cheer on participants and spread the wool. We'll wrap up the summer event series with the Steamboat Family Endurance Festival and XTERRA Trail Races over Labor Day weekend. Stay tuned for more details.
We hope you’re enjoying summer, race season and getting outside as much as possible. Happy trails!
