HONOLULU, HI – Greenlayer, a Portland, Oregon-based apparel design and manufacturing company specializing in performance and environmentally conscious materials has reached an agreement with XTERRA, the nation’s premier off-road triathlon and trail running series, to be the Official Apparel Partner for merchandise and events.
The multi-year contract marks a pivotal step for Greenlayer to partner with XTERRA athletes who will wear Greenlayer for training, racing and recovery at more than 165 XTERRA off-road triathlons and trail runs held across the U.S. this year.
"We strive to partner with organizations that value the growth of endurance sports and a healthy active lifestyle, and XTERRA has a history of international success in this arena,” said Greenlayer President Kim Bilancio. “Both brands are synonymous with authenticity, sport, excellence, and performance. We look forward to the XTERRA Partnership and outfitting the athletes as they prepare to race and experience XTERRA events around the world.”
Greenlayer has developed an exclusive line of XTERRA licensed apparel that is launching in March of 2014. This strategic alignment will further Greenlayer’s goal achieving an international presence of leadership in the performance apparel category. In 2014, Greenlayer will continue to develop and promote superior athletic apparel with a lower environmental impact, without sacrificing the high performance requirements of the athlete.
“We’re excited to partner with Greenlayer to provide excellent event shirts for our XTERRA Tribe,” said XTERRA President Janet Clark. “We know that an XTERRA race shirt lives a long life far beyond race weekend, and quality, function, and style are all important features. Greenlayer has us covered.”
