Engineered for road and trail runners, GORE RUNNING WEAR™ utilizes GORE-TEX® and WINDSTOPPER®
A lifelong athlete who has transitioned from professional football to off-road triathlon and trail running, Sutter is also a fire fighter for the Vail Fire department in Vail, Colo. and will be racing on behalf of nature-based rehabilitation organization, First Descents, and HIV-awareness organization, GrassRoot Soccer.
Sutter has participated in some of the country’s most extreme physical challenges in an effort to build awareness, raise money, and inspire others to act. This summer will be no different. In a span of ten days in August, Sutter will complete the Leadville 100 Mountain Bike Race, rest for two short days, and then run the 116 mile GORE-TEX® TransRockies.
“Racing the TransRockies and Leadville ‘double’ will be the most epic 10 days of racing of my life,” Sutter said. “There will be times when I will feel like I simply cannot pedal one more stroke or scurry up any more vertical, but I will have my amazing teammate from the fire department keeping me motivated along with the inspiration of knowing I am contributing to two hugely meaningful charitable organizations.”
For the GORE-TEX® TransRockies run, Sutter and fellow firefighter, LoFaro, will race in GORE® RUNNING WEAR pieces like the X-RUNNING LIGHT AS Jacket, which offers WINDSTOPPER®
Race winners will receive the GORE RUNNING WEAR™ ESSENTIAL GT Jacket, which provides durable waterproof and breathable protection with GORE-TEX® fabric technology. Volunteers will receive the MYTHOS SO LIGHT Jacket, with WINDSTOPPER®
“Participants of the GORE-TEX® Transrockies Run include a group of driven, adventure-hungry individuals, who need to be prepared for anything, whether they are running or volunteering,”
Sutter has close personal ties to the organizations for whom he’s running and riding. Founded by Sutter’s friend and former “Survivor”
