Kilian Jornet Explains His New Athletic Brand, NNormal

The founder of our sister site iRunFar speaks with the legendary ultrarunner about his new venture.

Last November, world-renowned athlete Kilian Jornet announced that he was parting ways with Salomon, his sponsor of 15 years. Jornet then explained that he wasn’t leaving the partnership for another existing brand but because he wanted to focus on a new, personal project. The decision took many by surprise and left the world of elite ultrarunning eager for details.

After months of near-silence, the mountain G.O.A.T. is ready to pipe up about the mystery endeavor, NNormal footwear and apparel.

Bryon Powell of iRunFar caught up with Jornet at this year’s Hardrock 100 to find out more. Take a look!
