Team X-T.R.E.M.E. at the Marine Corps Marathon

Team X-T.R.E.M.E. is in full force at the Marine Corps Marathon in Washington, DC this weekend. While the Marathon itself isn’t until tomorrow, the National Mall is in pre-race festival mode.

Sponsored by a multitude of industry partners, Team X-T.R.E.M.E. is on hand to raise money for wounded troops and their families. One of the fundraising events is an attempt by Jeremy Soles to run the entire Marine Corps Marathon while wearing a protective mask. In addition to the mask provided by manufacturer Avon, Jeremy will also be using a Camelbak hydration system that is NBC compatible to stay hydrated throughout the course without breaking the seal of the mask. As you can see from the graphic below, Jeremy has already successfully completed a half-marathon masked up. Look for full coverage provided by Extreme Outfitters soon.

It’s great to see industry so heavily involved in supporting our troops. To see what you can do to help visit them on the web.
