eco-friendly Plank Eyewear signs with IGNITE SwimRun
Richmond, VA (February 8, 2018) – IGNITE SwimRun continue to add official partners to its sponsorship roster with its announcement that PLANK Eyewear will be the Official Eyewear of the IGNITE SwimRun Series. Known for its use of sustainable wood materials and classic designs, PLANK Eyewear was the perfect match for the IGNITE Series which prides itself on creating race courses based on what the terrain dictates and its leave no trace philosophy.
“We couldn’t be happier to partner with Plank Eyewear,” said Jay Peluso, IGNITE SwimRun Co-Owner and Race Director. “They are all about the user experience. Their use of sustainable, eco-friendly materials to create unique, stylish eyewear really lines up with what we believe here at IGNITE.”
David Williamson, Founder of PLANK Eyewear, added, “we want to be associated with people and companies who believe what we believe. IGNITE’s leave-no-trace policy and their incredibly courses that showcase the beauty of the environment was important in our decision to partner with them.”
SwimRun is a two-person team endurance race in which participants compete together and must complete numerous swim and run legs while remaining within 10 meters of each other at all times.
IGNITE SwimRun will host 4 events in 4 different states in 2018 including the National Championship on October 20, 2018 in Richmond, VA. Each race is different and provides a unique endurance experience. Some swim courses experience deep, open water while others are shallow and rocky. Run courses vary between flat road and technical trail terrain.
Participants must wear shoes during all run legs. Rules permit swim aids such as hand paddles, pull buoys, and wetsuits. Safety gear is also required by race rules but ultimately athletes must finish with the gear they start with.
Registration for all 2018 events is currently open. For more information about IGNITE SwimRun, visit www.igniteswimrun.com.
