About our sponsor
is the brainchild of two gravity sports enthusiast Jean-Luc Diard and
Nicolas Mermoud. Both men are extremely experienced trail runners, who
quickly came to the conclusion that fatigue, impact and muscle strain were
challenges that all runners have to deal with, and so set about to design a
shoe that would help alleviate these problems. Hoka One one was born!
Their unique running shoes have been used by winners of marathons, 50 mile,
100 mile and even 2000+ mile ultra-runners.

We would ask all those involved in the "Fling"
