The Timberland Company has launched a nationwide tour stopping at 78 of the country's biggest outdoor events
and adventure races. The tour kicks off this weekend with participation in events in California, Oregon, Illinois and the renowned Leadville Trail 100 Series in Colorado. The coast-to-coast tour will continue through early-October, with hallmark events such as the Breckenridge Crest Mountain Marathon, Crater Lake Rim Runs, Deerfield River Festival, Pacific Coast Triathlon and Pedro's Fest.

At each event, participants and spectators will have a chance to get up
and personal with the people and technologies invloved with Timberland products. In addition to viewing the
innovations from Timberland through a branded vehicle and booth area,

technology platform through various activities. Timberland athletes
