Kilian Jornet and Emelie Forsberg, two of the biggest names in trail running, join forces with Coros

Jornet has significant goals for 2022, as the three-time UTMB champion to returns Chamonix, France, for another crack at glory.

Forsberg, who is Jornet’s partner, has the women’s FKT up and down from Mont Blanc in 7:53:12. Forsberg was the world sky-running champion in 2014 and is making a comeback to the sport after the birth of her second daughter in April 2021.
