ALPINA BECOMES THE OFFICIAL WATCH OF THE 2015 SKYRUNNER® WORLD SERIES & EUROPEAN CHAMPIONSHIPS
The International Skyrunning Federation (ISF) is proud to announce a new partnership for 2015 with luxury sport watch manufacturer Alpina Watches, a Swiss family-owned company manufacturing exceptionally robust mechanical and connected sport watches engineered and built to withstand extreme natural environments, especially at high altitudes – the perfect match for skyrunning.
As Official Watch of the 2015 Skyrunner® World Series and European Skyrunning Championships, Alpina Watches will be present at a select number of events stretching across the globe from the skyrunning heart-land in the Alps to north of the Arctic Circle, East to Hong Kong and West to America’s rugged Montana mountains.
A key element of the partnership between Alpina and the ISF is the Alpina Smart Time Prize, which will award exceptional performance by participants according to the “Smart Time Formula”. The formula is based timing at the highest point of the race with a bonus given to younger and older competitors, putting everyone at the same level, irrespective of the final race result. The men’s and women’s winners of the Alpina Smart Time Prize will each be awarded with an Alpina Horological Smartwatch.
