2017 Will be the 21st running of the legendary SkyRun presented by Salomon, and in true SkyRun fashion, leading premium sports watch Suunto has partnered with the team to help take the race to new heights.

“We are super excited to have Suunto on board as these products where designed to be used in the rugged wilderness that is the SkyRun battlefield,” says Adrian Saffy from Pure Adventures. “What makes this partnership so much more attractive is that we have been using Suunto units in our personal capacity long before acquiring them as an associate sponsor, so to have a brand backing our events that we have put our faith and trust in when training and competing and scouting is a huge privilege. We are confident that with Suunto coming on board we have a winning combination as our presenting sponsor Salomon and our associate sponsor Suunto have a global footprint and association.”

Born in 1936 Suunto has been at the forefront of innovation, hand crafting premium sports watches, instruments and dive computers that have been tested in the world’s harshest conditions. From the beginning of time, man has explored. All that has changed are the tools.

“Our partnership with SkyRun is a perfect synergy,” says Chris Frankiskos, Suunto Brand Manager.  “We offer the ultimate sports watch that is capable of handling everything SkyRun has to throw at it. The battery life, colour touch screen and built in features are all class leading. Both our product and the event are #beyondlogic.”
