Vancouver-based Hillsound Equipment, a producer of winter traction equipment and gaiters for urban and outdoor enthusiasts, is a product sponsor for the 9th annual Winter Wild Race Series. Each race in the New England-based series is a challenge for both legs and lungs made up of a 2-5 mile course with ascents and descents between 700 and 2,000 feet.

Winter Wild fuels their mission to “inspire active living” by hosting fun winter events for all fitness levels- from novice to expert athletes. Each race aims to promote healthy competitions, challenges and local business in the New England area. The Winter Wild races are an “uphill series with a twist.” Each race begins and ends at the bottom of the mountain, so participants can enjoy the thrill of going downhill to finish the race.

“We are so glad to be able to provide our Trail Crampon Ultras to the participants,” said Hillsound Equipment Marketing Manager YooRa Kang. “A large portion of the race is ascents and descents, often on slippery terrain, which means our traction devices are ideal for participants to stay safe and have fun while on the trail.”

Supporting the Winter Wild race series directly aligns with Hillsound’s values of getting outdoors, staying safe and having fun. Hillsound’s lightweight, high strength, stainless steel traction devices will help keep racers from slipping and falling on the slick trails during each race of the Winter Wild Series.
