ENTER BELOW AND MAY THE BEST BALLS WIN!!!!!

LAKE PLACID, N.Y. – USA Luge has announced the final list of prizes for the seventh Duluth Trading Company USA Luge Running of the Balls (ROTB7) fundraiser, a fun and exciting initiative to help support the team’s athletes and programs. Deadline for entry, Tuesday, February 15 at noon, is rapidly approaching. A host of sponsors have also come on board to support ROTB7. 
 
The event will air on the organization’s website (www.usaluge.org) on February 16 at  6 PM EST. The 2022 “race” will be held against the backdrop of the Beijing Winter Games.
 
Duluth Trading Company is the Official Off-Sled Outfitter to USA Luge.
 
“This has become a really great fun event for the fans and for us at USA Luge,” said Gordy Sheer, USA Luge Director of Marketing and Sponsorships. “Now we’ll do it again for the seventh time, with the goal of raising over $45,000. With the Olympic Games in Beijing going on, this funding will begin our drive to the Games in 2026. Our teams will be training and competing non-stop over the next four years, so our financial need is ongoing. Money raised will help defray those costs.”
 
Over 1,000 lacrosse balls will negotiate the nearly one-mile course down Mount Van Hoevenberg. The lacrosse balls were donated by Summit Lacrosse Ventures. 
 
Fans will be able to participate in this unique event by entering as many balls as they’d like in this race that benefits USA Luge. Cash and prizes from Duluth Trading Company will be offered for the top 10 balls and the last place ball. 
 
There will also be a race within the race as a collection of blue-colored lacrosse balls will roll down the Olympic Sports Complex sliding track simultaneously with the yellow and white. The two concurrent events have proven to be very popular. The yellow and white balls are offered at $10 each or three for $25. The blue colored balls can be purchased at $30 each. Winners of the blue ball race will win a trip to the next domestic World Cup event, including airfare, lodging and ground transportation. Fans will be able to participate in this unique event by entering as many balls as they’d like in this two-of-a-kind race that benefits the athletes. All sales will conclude on Tuesday, February 15 at 12 PM ET.
