The North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships has announced MudGear as the official sock of the 2018 championships at Stratton Mountain, Vermont. The two premier obstacle course racing brands continue their relationship which was first forged at the Obstacle Course Racing World Championships in 2016.
MudGear creates durable socks that stand up to the harshest elements on earth, and the North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships is proud once again partner with them in 2018.
“Anyone who has ever braved our course knows that it’s the ultimate test of endurance, so it’s important that our athletes stay as protected as possible,” said Sandra Sawyer, Partnership Director for Adventurey. “This is why we are ecstatic that industry leader MudGear will be the official sock sponsor of the 2018 North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships. With excellent drainage, strategically placed padding and superior support, MudGear has created the perfect racing sock for our sport.”
As part of the partnership, limited-edition NorAm MudGear socks will be sold on the MudGear website leading up to the event this summer. The specialty socks will also be available on race weekend.
MudGear continues to be the favorite sock of obstacle course racing athletes and was named runner-up for best Obstacle Course Racing Gear Brand at the 2017 Best of OCR awards by the obstacle racing website MudRunGuide.com. Both professional obstacle racers and more casual weekend warriors love MudGear socks for their durability and affordability, creating a winning combination in the obstacle racing gear sector.
MudGear products have developed a cult-like following from the sport’s top athletes. “I wouldn’t want to wear any other socks for a race, or life in general,” said Rea Kolbl, winner of World’s Toughest Mudder, and a member of the winning team at the 2017 Obstacle Course Racing World Championships Team Championship.
The North American Obstacle Course Racing Championships is set to take place August 10-12, 2018 in the majestic Green Mountains at Stratton Mountain, Vermont. Learn more about the event at www.noramchamps.com
