Swiftwick Sponsors Checkpoint Tracker Adventure Racing
Earlier today, Checkpoint Tracker Adventure Racing and Swiftwick, a company that makes compression socks and sleeves, announced that they are extending their partnership. As part of the deal, all of the racers taking part in the Checkpoint Tracker National Championship in October will receive a pair of Swiftwick socks and sleeves for use during the race. The offer is open for anyone who registers before August 15th, and the gear will be shipped to them ahead of time to it can be throughly tested prior to the October 21st Championship.
Has anyone used compression socks or sleeves in their training/recovery? I first saw the athletes using them at Primal Quest, particularly after race was over, and they all swore by them, but I've yet to invest in a pair for myself. I'd be interested in hearing reports from others who have used them and how they aided you.
Also, this is a good sign that sponsorships are starting to return to adventure racing. The past few years have been lean in that department, but the sport seems to be on a great trajectory at the moment with some excellent races taking part all over the world. Hopefully this bodes well for more sponsors getting on board in the near future.
