The training partner of choice for most trail runners has joined the Golden Ultra sponsorship pool for the next three years. Suunto, the GPS watch manufacturer from Finland, will be helping Golden Ultra runners train and share their successes via MovesCount.
"What do I like about my Suunto watch? It's difficult to itemize the entire list, but the battery life is unbeatable and the Moves Count interface (and Strava link) is pretty cool. I love my "beers earned" app, especially on the hot and sunny running days." shares Golden runner, Roger Smith. "On a more serious note, the cadence feature on the Ambit 2R is really useful for my intensity workouts."
Golden Ultra organizers will be using Suunto’s Ambit 2R to map, measure and detail all three of the Golden Ultra stages. Watch for links to the Moves Count moves online and download the moves to your watch for easy navigation on your training runs.
The Golden Ultra is a three-day stage running race (or relay) in Golden, BC from September 18-20, 2015. Runners may participate in all three stages as a solo or part of a relay, or may register for any single or combination of two stages separately.
