Women’s yoga and athletic wear designer, TerraFrog Clothing Corp., announced that the company will unveil a new performance bamboo enriched running short at the Great Canadian Death Trail Race Marathon in Grande Cache, Alberta, on August 5, 2012. Launch of the performance running short was initially slated for Winter 2013, but the company announced it would release the short four months early.
“We decided the best place to release the running short was at the Great Canadian Death Race,” said TerraFrog Director, Bobbi Windsor. “What better group to get the first glimpse of the performance bottoms, and put them to the test, than elite athletes from around the world?”
TerraFrog Clothing Corp. will showcase the new bamboo enriched running short, along with the company’s current Summer 2012 collection, in an exclusive tent adjacent to the race start line. The tent will be open to all runners, media and spectators.
“The race is 125 kilometers over rough terrain and passes over three different mountain summits,“ said Bobbi Windsor. “Runners need a performance running short that is breathable, wicks sweat away from the body and doesn’t chafe or ride up.”
