Polartec, the premium provider of innovative textile solutions, announces its sponsorship of partner brand Red Fox’s 14th annual Red Fox Adventure Race to be held June 11-14, 2015 in Russia. Polartec will sponsor the first-ever all female team, the first American team in five years, outfitted in Red Fox apparel made of Polartec fabrics, comprised of Jimi Alida, Shawnie Mulligan, Kathleen Wickam, and Amy Caldwell.
The race will be held in the scenic Karelian region of Russia, on the shores of Onega Lake, consisting of three loops requiring racers to run, bike, hike, kayak, rock climb, swim, wade through mud, woods, brush and water. Depending on how teams choose to complete the course, they will mountain bike 190 km, paddle 100 km, trek 55 km, and do 100m of spelunking. The race will have a short course, which must be completed within 48 hours, and a long course, which must be completed within 72 hours, requiring willpower, stamina, and technical proficiency in each of the core disciplines.
