Hillsound is excited to sponsor the Breckenridge Resolution Run in 2015. Taking place at 11am on New Year’s Day, racers will begin and end at Colorado Mountain College in Breckenridge, Colorado.

The festive 5K-race will give participants the opportunity to run on the Blue River/Rec Path where they can enjoy scenic views of the town and surrounding mountains. There will be a separate heat for entrants racing in snowshoes and prizes will be awarded to the top three overall male and female finishers in each event and to the first place winners in each age group.

Race participants will receive a raffle entry for a chance to win prizes from the sponsors. In addition, event attendees will have the chance to demo products from Hillsound Equipment including traction devices and gaiters.

“We are so excited to be part of the Breckenridge Resolution Run,” said Hillsound Marketing Manager Jessica Greinke. “We’re a company that’s devoted to having fun outdoors, so this is an ideal race for us to be a part of.”

Additional event sponsors include Colorado Mountain College, Whole Foods Frisco, Sports Authority, Crescent Moon Snowshoes, and Skratch Labs.
