SynchroKnit™ Powered by Wigwam Sponsors Series of 29 Running Races for 2020

March 3, 2020

Sheboygan, WI. (March 3, 2020) SynchroKnit™, the technology driven brand from the sock innovators at Wigwam Mills Inc., announces today that the brand is sponsoring a lineup of 29 running races over the coming nine months, in locations across the US. The races include road, trail and a wide variety of distances from 5Ks to the Rio Del Lago 100 Mile outside of Sacramento, CA. Also, included in the lineup are Zooma weekend get-away race events for women and the Wasatch Trail Run Series in Utah. “We wanted to extend our support to all runners and a wide assortment of races. An obvious common denominator among runners is the need for healthy, comfortable feet during and after a run or race,” says Brad Bates, Director of Sales at Wigwam. “SynchroKnit’s  groundbreaking technology can make a difference to all runners. The sock has an unrivaled precision, non-slip fit and was launched in the run category because runners, in particular, demand precision fit from their shoes.”

SynchroKnit™ Powered by Wigwam will be giving away two race entries for each race (Wasatch Trail Run Series excepted) and, of course, several pair of SynchroKnit socks at each race. Brand ambassadors will work the gear check table at each race along with local retail partners. Find more information and registration information at Synchroknit.com and follow each race on their social media channels for contest details.
