We've joined forces with Sealskinz for a second year

corporate sponsorship

In 2016 we teamed up with Sealskinz, the British Endurance Accessories manufacturer, as the title sponsor of our ultra events. We're thrilled to be working with them for a second year. The Sealskinz Ultra Trail Series is made up of six events, each providing a unique challenge to test mind and body across some of the UK's most beautiful trails. 

“Sealskinz products are the perfect companion for Ultra runners,” comments Matt Boyce, Head of Marketing at Sealskinz. 

Neil Thubron, founder of XNRG is delighted to have the brand involved for a second year as he explains, “I have been a fan of Sealskinz for several years now and use their products myself.  I am really pleased that a brand of this calibre is getting behind Ultra racing and can’t wait to put their new styles to the test.”

 

About our partner Sealskinz

Sealskinz was the pioneer of the Endurance Accessories market.  Since the launch of its first waterproof sock in 1998, Sealskinz has been the market leader and maintains its position by developing new products and technologies that enable its users to get out and stay out for longer.

The company’s initial success came from the development of its patented StretchDry® technology, which allows Sealskinz to manufacture 100% waterproof, breathable and windproof socks and gloves.  This discovery opened up a whole world of new possibilities for the fledgling company and protecting its customers from the elements became their driving force. 

The company’s products are now available in more than 40 countries and is used by athletes and adventurers the world over to get out stay out whatever the weather.
