Join Lily Trotters and Vacation Races in the National Park series, we’re racing through nine states and eleven spectacular U.S. National Parks in the months ahead. Our team of POWER CHICKS will be posting updates on Instagram along the trail! With the goal of promoting discovery, exploration, health, natural beauty, stewardship, well-being and creating memories, Vacation Races has partnered with the National Park Foundation to inspire runners worldwide to enjoy these national treasures. The race provides runners the experience of a lifetime with a series of events and challenges, including the option to go hiking and camping. A significant portion of each runner’s registration fees are contributed to the National Park Foundation.
Don’t forget to check out our partner The Dyrt, if you plan to camp and hike while there. They are a yelp site for camping and have great tools to help with planning. Register here and view the map showing the race destinations!
Casey and Shellie, Lily Trotters' own resident POWER CHICKS, represented Lily Trotters at the inaugural Napa Valley 50K.
With roughly 7,000 feet of elevation gain up Mount Saint Helena and a broken shoe for Casey, their Lily Trotters served them well -- keeping their legs strong and energized (considering the circumstances!). When asked how their legs were feeling the day after, both ladies agree that they were not nearly as sore as expected -- much thanks to their Lily Trotters compression socks.
We LOVE our team of unstoppable women!
Lily Trotters was on display as the Altantic Coast Athletic Club kicked off their NEW Group Exercise Program! We are HUGE fans of group exercise as working out with friends helps us stay accountable and committed to our fitness goals.
Team Lily Trotters had a great time in Salt Lake City, Utah at this year's Outdoor Retailer Winter Market event. Retailers from across the globe had the opportunity to learn about the benefits of compression and feel Lily Trotters compression socks. We are excited by the buzz being generated about what makes Lily Trotters different (hint: our UNIQUE DESIGNS, luxurious yarns, easy on and easy off weave, signature compression technology AND we are USA made!).
We also got a lot of inspiration from the brands that are leading the way in the performance industry complete with multi-level booths, ice-climbing demos, food & drink and live music. Fun!
We're looking forward to the day when Lily Trotters has a stronger presence at these shows...though we think we'll offer free foot massages! What do you think?!
Almost forgot to mention, one lucky retailer received 30 FREE PAIRS of Lily Trotters compression socks to go home and sell...that's a $1500 value! All-in-all, this event was a HUGE success. Can't wait til next year!
