2018 Sponsor: Altra Running


We're very happy to announce that we're continuing our relationship with Altra Running in 2018! They've been a fantastic partner for us and our runners love them as well.

Here's a little note from Altra:

Altra is stoked to once again sponsor Vacation Races and join their mission to help people experience National Parks in a fun, challenging way. We're dedicated to bringing you the best possible running experience with our FootShape™, Zero Drop™, and Fit4Her™ shoes, and know that your trail running experience will only be enhanced if your toes are free to wiggle and your foot is in its natural alignment.

Although we make many road, trail and casual styles, our roots are on the trail and when it comes to gnarly terrain, our shoes have the cred.

As you train and prepare for your chosen Vacation Race, we highly recommend you give one of our trail models a try. From the cushier Olympus and Timp, to the gnarly-terrain-eating Lone Peak and Superior, or the sand crushing King MT, our trail shoes are made for your adventure.

A few tips from our experience include wearing gaiters—Altra trail shoes are all equipped with a GaiterTrap™ to keep your gaiters secure and keep sand and debris out, and we make the gaiters to match!

Second, make sure you have fun! Practice running on a trail and get used to varied terrain and uneven ground, if you don’t have access to a trail get creative with the curb, grassy fields or gravely shoulders, we promise it will pay off.

Whether this is your first trail race, or you’re a seasoned vet, we hope your Vacation Races experience is all you ever dreamed of and more. Happy Trails!

Next time you're at a Vacation Races event, give the Altra Running crew a high five and tell them thanks for supporting these wonderful events.
