Swiftwick, an innovative American manufacturer of industry leading performance socks, will play an instrumental role in helping Checkpoint Tracker realize it’s full potential as both a framework for competitive adventure racing and as a technology innovator delivering web and mobile applications for adventure racers, fans and promoters.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with Swiftwick for a variety of reasons that go beyond their exceptional compression socks, which is reason enough”, commented Paul Angell, President of Checkpoint Zero. “The fact that they employ a US workforce to make their products in America makes the relationship that much more important to us. Mark’s team is creative, ambitious and fun to be around. They add capabilities that we don’t have in house and I’m really looking forward to working with them at the Championship in WV this fall.”
“Swiftwick is dedicated to building world class compression socks that last longer and perform better under extreme conditions,” says Mark Cleveland, Swiftwick Co-founder and President. “These days, manufacturing in the US is as big an adventure as you can imagine. We’re excited to be celebrating our love of adventure with our customers by supporting the Checkpoint Tracker Adventure Racing Championship.”
Racers attending the Checkpoint Tracker Championship on September 28th in Oak Hill, WV can look forward to whitewater rafting, riverboarding, mountain biking, trekking and orienteering across a 100 mile course over 30 hours through the rugged and beautiful terrain surrounding the Gauley River National Recreation Area of West Virginia.
