At the beginning of March, together with the Austrian region of Montafon and Salomon, we launched a very special trail run competition in the Netherlands. With a kick-off video, trail runners from the Netherlands were invited by top trailer Tim Pleijte to share their favourite local trail. More than 80 entries later, three of these trails were selected. The winners received a complete Salomon trail run kit and the chance to participate all expenses paid, in the Koning van Spanje (King of Spain) Trailrun in Limburg. There they could already taste for the race what Montafon, besides trail running, has more to offer. Because on June 30, one of the three lucky trailers will once again be able to take part in the Montafon Arlberg Marathon!
The Koning van Spanje trail was a fantastic event, sunny and warm, perhaps a bit hot for the distances and altimeters that were covered in Limburg. In this video, you can see an impression of the event and how our winners fared.
Shortly after the Koning van Spanje trail we were able to announce that Renee Cardinaals will go to Montafon on the 30th of June to run the Montafon Arlberg Marathon. We will be there again to follow her!
