Gran Trail Courmayeur sells out, La Sportiva new main sponsor
The event organised by VDA Trailers is the flagship event of the Mont-Blanc Trail Fest, with three technical and challenging routes to be tackled among the highest peaks in Europe.
The GTC continues to grow, both in terms of numbers and visibility, but above all in terms of collaborations. In fact, a partnership has been signed in recent weeks with La Sportiva: a Trentino company that is a world leader in the production of climbing shoes and high mountain boots.
La Sportiva joins as a new main sponsor of the event for footwear and clothing, and will be present in Courmayeur with collateral activities during the event, product demonstrations and special prizes.
“This partnership represents the union of two excellences in the world of outdoor sports,’ explains Alessandra Nicoletti, president of VDA Trailers, ‘and underlines our joint commitment to promoting adventure, safety and love for the mountains. Innovation, passion and sustainability, therefore, which are perfectly matched with the organisation’s goal of guaranteeing athletes a unique and unforgettable experience, facing the challenge with safety and comfort”
“Being a sponsor of this important event is a great reason for us to be proud,” explains Vittorio Barrasso, Brand & Communication Manager of La Sportiva. “In fact, it represents one of the excellent ways of enhancing mountain sports, the athletic performance required and the alpine territory, which have always been at the heart of La Sportiva’s attention in thinking, studying and developing high performance products dedicated to athletes and lovers of the various forms of mountain running. We are convinced that we are witnessing a great show: being on the race course and assisting our athletes is the best way to enhance the historic bond between the brand and its fans”.
