when you push a little harder, a little faster, a little longer?



Most of our amazing outdoor adventures are not solo endeavors, they are shared experiences. So, lining up with a few hundred like-minded friends may not bring out your fastest time or longest day, but the experience of going hard amongst your peers will be utterly rewarding. Get swept up in the passion, push yourself a little further, and fire up your competitive instincts at a Vasque-sponsored event.


Minneapolis, Minnesota, September 13, 2014

On Sept. 13th, the Vasque team will be participating in the Great River Race for the second year in a row. The Great River Race is a canoe race on the Mississippi river from Minneapolis to St. Paul in support of the Urban Wilderness Canoe Adventures (UWCA) outdoor education program.

Proceeds collected from the race will be used to address the achievement gap in schools; helping to get kids onto our nation's rivers for outdoor learning experiences that boost academic engagement. In five years, the UWCA has served over 50,000 kids.
