The Skyrunner® World Series has announced that Hong Kong-based performance clothing brand, T8, is the official apparel partner for the remainder of the 2023 circuit.
T8, a company specialising in ultralight, supercool, chafe-free running apparel, is the latest addition to join the impressive brand partner portfolio of the 2023 Skyrunner® World Series which, already includes mapping partner, FatMap; footwear partner, Merrell; insurance provider, Genki; training program provider, VertRun; and nutrition partner, BIX.
T8, which is already making waves in the trail running world, was co-founded by two ultra runners. The garments have been designed for hot and humid running conditions and are, therefore, lightweight for minimal heat insulation, extra wicking and quick drying, plus super breathable for maximum air flow – all ideal features for many races on the Skyrunner® World Series circuit where skyrunning temperatures have already been at 34°C.
Etienne Rodriguez, SkyMan Managing Director, comments:
“We’re really excited to have T8 as the apparel partner of the Skyrunner® World Series. One of our key initiatives this year was to find and select the right partners for the series that match our values and provide a real benefit for our community and athletes.
With T8 there’s no waste on their products, everything serves a purpose and the technical features are ideal for Skyrunning. T8 is an innovative company and a fast-growing brand. We look forward to a partnership where the SWS and T8 can grow and evolve together.”
Mark Green, T8 Co-Founder adds:
“As one of the most technical race series, we believe SWS attracts the type of runner that really pushes the limit over long hours in the mountains. And that is where our gear really shines.”
The 2023 season features 13 races in eight countries around the world, a prize money pool of €100,000 and an elite athlete field of over 100 of the world’s leading skyrunners competing for the overall title, making it the ideal platform for T8 to showcase its leading technical skyrunning apparel.
