Kim Ashworth, VP/CMO at Ashworth Awards commented: “Partnering with the US Trail Running Conference shows our commitment to the endurance sports and trail running industry.  We do not consider ourselves as just another vendor to our accounts, we are their partner!  We work hand-in-hand to develop their medallion, woodallion® and award needs for their athletes. My husband, Dan, and I participate in endurance events and we understand first-hand the importance of receiving a high quality medallion/woodallions® at the finish line.  By partnering with the US Trail Running Conference we are giving back to the industry that supports our business. We love being part of the trail running community!”
