The Phantom Run Trail Race by Mountain Madness race took place on Saturday, November 14, 2015 in North Vancouver at the Lower Seymour Conservation Reserve. Hillsound was excited to be a sponsor of this great event and attended on race day with a booth and giveaways.
The trail race gave participants the opportunity to take part in a 12.5 km, 19.5 km, or 24.5 km run. All proceeds went to North Shore Rescue and the surrounding food banks. In 2014, the Phantom Run Trail Race raised over $1,100 for North Shore Rescue, an organization dedicated to search and rescue missions in the Vancouver mountains. In addition to a monetary fee to participate in the race, runners were asked to contribute canned goods that were donated to the local food banks and homeless shelters.
“We were thrilled to be part of the Phantom Run Trail Race for the third time,” said Hillsound Equipment Marketing Manager Jessica Greinke. “The philanthropy behind the event is so important to us. It is humbling to have the ability to sponsor the race and to be part of something that has such a great impact on the community.”
Awards were presented along with a potluck soup lunch after the race. In addition, a raffle took place with many draw prizes, including crampons donated by Hillsound Equipment.
Hillsound was one of eight sponsors for the race, including Alete Sports Nutrition, Bremner Foods, CLIF Bars, Forerunners, Moveo Sport and Rehab, Seymour’s Pub, and Waves Coffee.
