Émile Chouriet The winners of the 2019 edition of Sierre-Zinal
The 46th edition of Sierre-Zinal, that Emile Chouriet supports as an Official Partner, took place on Sunday 4th of August for a most memorable “race of the five 4,000m peaks”.
Sierre-Zinal, the unique Golden Trails World Circuit race in the heart of the Swiss Valais alpine region, brought over 5’000 participants from 51 countries. In the men’s category, the Spanish seven-time winner Kilian Jornet broke the record of the race, completing the course in a record time of 2 hours 25 minutes and 35.5 seconds. Jornet was awarded a watch from the Challenger Deep collection, a perfect pairing with the Challenger Cliff he was awarded after last year’s Sierre-Zinal race. Swiss runner Maude Mathys finished in first place in the women’s category, taking 2 hours 49 minutes and 20.8 seconds to complete the high-altitude race. Mathys was awarded a watch from the Ladies collection.

The organizers of Sierre-Zinal held a contest at the end of the race, where all the runners removed their bibs and placed them in an urn. Several prizes were available to win by random draw, including a Challenger Cliff watch. Emile Chouriet also offered the opportunity to win a watch at its booth, where one name will be randomly drawn in September and will receive a Challenger Cliff watch from the brand’s sporty collection.
