Race SLO Founder Samantha Pruitt Chosen By Adventure Aide as a “Face of Adventure”

Pruitt’s personal story of adventure and transformation featured in the latest Adventure Aide original film episode

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – (October 22, 2018) – Race SLO's founder Samantha Pruitt and Adventure Aide share the same goal – get people connected and get them outdoors.

Samantha is an entrepreneur, endurance sports race director, ultra endurance and adventure athlete, podcast host and lifestyle coach. Her life's purpose is to create meaningful experiences for people to build their best lives and best bodies through endurance sports, outdoor adventure and human connection. She founded Race SLO in 2008 and has grown it into the largest participatory sporting event producer on California’s Central Coast.

“The core of our mission, above all, is human connection. I was stoked to see that Adventure Aide uses technology to do just that – connect people who share a love of the outdoors and spirit for adventure. Aides on the social platform offer a way for like-minded people to explore and be active together while sharing expertise and mentorship in their sport. As a passionate adventure seeker myself, I am always looking to connect with others in my tribe. I'm honored to be a role model for the Adventure Aide’s mission as a “Face of Adventure” and hope that my story will inspire others to dare greatly in their own lives,” said Pruitt.

Adventure Aide is an online social platform that connects humans of all experience levels with outdoor activities led by local guide adventurers. With 330 adventures across the West Coast to choose from and over 38,000 users, Adventure Aide is making everyday an adventure. Founded by Connor Woolpert, a San Luis Obispo native, their mission is to inspire people to get outside, discover what they love, meet cool people and appreciate the world around them.

“Samantha is a community builder and leader here on the Central Coast. It was a natural fit to work with her because her values embody adventure and her passion exemplifies what it means to live an outdoor lifestyle. We feel that Samantha and Adventure Aide have a shared mission which is to inspire others to get outside, create community, help people push their limits and facilitate experiences that change lives. We’re looking forward to working with her again on future projects,” said Woolpert.

Adventure Aide app is available for both iOS and Android. It allows users to create and host group events like hiking, running, climbing, surfing, paragliding, yoga, overnight adventures and more. It also allows for more atypical activities like nature photography lessons, guided food tours, acro yoga or sandboarding. People can search by date and location for the adventures in their area. Many of the experiences are free, while others cost a fee that can be paid with the app.
