MiōnŽ Footwear is sponsoring a Speed Rolling Contest at the Outdoor Retailer show in Salt Lake in August with Miōn's own Tao Berman emceeing the event.
The contest will be held on Thursday, Aug. 9 from 10:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. at the Outdoor Retailer Paddle Tank. Paddlers will compete head-to-head in 30-second heats attempting to tally the most rolls before time runs out. Two semifinal heats and a finals race will determine top place finishes. Spots in the event are available for the first 16 eager kayakers who sign up ready to showcase their rolling abilities.
Top three finishers in the event will be awarded cash prizes of $200, $100 and $50, respectively, in addition to kayak rolling glory. Each participant will also receive a certificate for a free pair of MiōnŽ shoes.
Additionally, for every roll accumulated by the top three finishers during the event, Miōn will donate $5 to Utah Rivers Council.
