Salomon is the real deal. This French company makes some of the most technically-advanced trail running shoes, apparel, and packs in the world. If you want to go high science with your ultrarunning, Salomon is your brand of choice. Yes, that sounds like hyperbole, but it’s not. Salomon was the first outside brand we brought into the iRunFar store and we continue to carry Salomon goods with great enthusiasm. With this contest, you’ve got a chance to win a great prize pack from Salomon and the iRunFar store. Oh, and that’s not all. We’re including a sweet prize from another French technologie-centric company, performance sunglasses from Julbo.
Feeling lucky? If so, you should know that this is the third in a week’s long series of giveaways to celebrate the launch of Relentless Forward Progress: A Guide to Running Ultramarathons. (Feel free to spread the word.)
Salomon makes some great trail running apparel. For the sake of gender equality, the winner of this contest will receive Salomon’s Trail Runner II Tech Tee (men’s& women’s) and Trail III Short (men’s & women’s). The Trail Runner II Tech Tee is a lightweight tech shirt with vented panels and two gel pockets, while the Trail III Short is a running short designed for the trails that includes a zipper pocket.
We’re also digging into the iRunFar store for two awesome supplemental items. First off, the winner will get to stay hydrated with the Salomon XT Advanced Skin S-Lab Set. This top of the line pack fits like a vest with a bevy of accoutrements. Next up, a pair of Salomon Exo IV Calves. The Exo IV Calf are the latest iteration of Salomon’s compression leg sleeves that I often wear on long runs are while racing.
Finally, the winner will receive an iRunFar Headsweats hat to keep him or her comfortable and stylish year-round.
Here’s a bit more from Salomon (and Kilian Jornet) to get your fired up about you trail running!
