Emile Chouriet Official partner of Sierre-Zinal
After a successful first outing, Emile Chouriet renew its partnership with the epic “Race of the five 4,000m peaks”, whose 2019 edition will be held on Sunday 11th of August.
Since its creation almost half-a-century ago, Sierre-Zinal has been able to transmit itself for several decades and through several generations. While the course itself has remained virtually unchanged since the very first edition of the race in 1974, the experience itself has evolved: More dynamic, more organized, and more international in its scope. Already in its 46th edition, and the second consecutive year that Emile Chouriet participates as a partner, the Sierre-Zinal is widely recognized as one of the most outstanding mountain races. Surrounded by exceptional landscapes and a convivial atmosphere, the race attracts runners and visitors from all over the world.
As of last year, Sierre-Zinal has joined the ranks of the Golden Trail World Series, making it now part of the five most prestigious mountain races in the world. Crossing several mountain peaks and valleys in the heart of the Valais, Sierre-Zinal represents a challenging course: 31km in total distance, with an ascent of 2‘200m and a descent of 1’100m.
Just like this race, Emile Chouriet hails from a regional foundation, and benefits from an international influence. It relies on a traditional watchmaking know-how and craftsmanship that has been preserved through generations, while at the same time looking towards the future and reinterpreting its past heritage into contemporary and original forms. The timepieces it produces in its Geneva manufacture are destined for discerning buyers all around the world. The Swiss Alps are also a powerful driving force and source of inspiration for the brand; specifically its Challenger Cliff collection. With design cues drawn from the mountains that surround its manufacture in Geneva, these sporty models, endowed with sharp details, recall the rock and ice and convey the determination of surpassing oneself.
