Free Hiking & Running Shoe Demo on Mt. Rose / Tahoe Rim TrailJuly 8th, 2014 By Adam Broderick
Join us for another great outdoor event, free to the public as usual! On Saturday, July 19, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., leading footwear brands Salomon, Merrell, La Sportiva, Scarpa and Darn Tough will be on the Mt. Rose portion of the Tahoe Rim Trail, and you can demo as many pairs of this year’s best trail shoes as you’d like; it’s all free!
Ever hiked the Tahoe Rim Trail or trekked around the Mt. Rose area? Then you know how beautiful this trail is, and you’re probably looking for any excuse to get back on it. Well, this is your chance to try out new hiking and running shoes before you buy them! With the best off-road footwear on demo for everyone, spectacular views of Lake Tahoe and the surrounding peaks and valleys, and no charge whatsoever, you’re not going to want to miss this event.
Are you already participating in the Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge? The Tahoe Rim Trail Association (TRTA) mascot, McLeod the Marmot, as well as TRTA staff, will be greeting hikers on-trail and encouraging Challengers as they work toward their goals. Find McLeod and he’ll give you a prize!
What is this ‘Trail Challenge’ we speak of?
“The 2nd Annual Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge continues to build momentum as over 350 hikers, bikers and equestrians and five large Reno-Tahoe based corporations engage their employees in the 2014 Tahoe Rim Trail Challenge,” said Shannon Sakrit of the Tahoe Rim Trail Association. “The program has inspired both novice and seasoned trail users from the Reno-Tahoe and Sacramento-Bay areas to begin tackling small sections of the Tahoe Rim Trails through six day hikes along the 165-mile Tahoe Rim Trail. Participants socialize by sharing their on-trail experiences, stories, [and] pictures on the interactive, Tahoe Rim Trail Community.” Visit www.tahoerimtrail.org for more information or to register for the Challenge. It is NOT necessary to register for this TMS Footwear Demo.
You don’t want to miss this free event! It’s not often you get the best off-road footwear brands in the same place at the same time, let alone with FREE demo shoes for everyone.
