Ogden, UT ---February 25, 2011--Suunto, a global leader in sports precision instruments, announces its sponsorship of Vail Recreation District’s (VRD) 2011 La Sportiva Vail Mountain Trail Running Series based in the Vail Valley, Colorado.

As a key sponsor of the La Sportiva Vail Mountain Trail Running Series, Suunto will award the series winner in each category an M5 Running Pack. The Suunto M5 Running pack includes a heart rate monitor, Suunto Foot Pod to gauge speed and distance and a Suunto Movestick Mini to wirelessly upload watch data and logs to Movescount.com.

The La Sportiva Vail Mountain Trail Running Series has been named the best race series in 2005 and 2008 by Colorado Runner magazine. This summer’s seven-race series marks the 14th year of the program in the Vail Valley. The series will take place during the course of the summer and range from 3.2 to 14.5 miles. Here is a complete schedule of the race.

“As one of the best trail running series in the Rockies, partnering with VRD and La Sportiva Vail Trail Running Series makes perfect sense for Suunto,” says Chris McKearin, Suunto USA Consumer Marketing & Events Coordinator.

"We strive to provide the best possible experience for our participants, including offering them the best prizes for their efforts, and Suunto is the best product in their category," says VRD race director, Marc Thomas. "We are excited to work with Suunto this summer to continue to elevate our events for everyone involved."

The Suunto M5 provides the most complete multi-sport fitness and recovery partner. The M5 shows when the user has fully recovered from the previous workout and can safely complete the next high-impact workout. The M5 comes equipped with a Suunto Dual Comfort Belt, is compatible with Suunto Fitness Solution, tracks speed and distance with optional PODS, uploads exercise data onto Movescount.com and can download custom workouts from Movescount.com.
