Julien Chorier shares his vision of trail running with Julbo
Already a winner of the Zugspitz Ultra Trail, Ultra Trail Mt. Fuji, Grand Raid de la Réunion and Andorra Ultra Trail Vallnord, Julien Chorier joins Team Julbo to the great delight of the brand with a primary goal for his season: the UTMB® 2013.
Born in 1980, Julien Chorier is married and the father of two little girls. He leads a harmonious existence between his family, his work - as a construction engineer - and his passion. Rigorous, hard-working and full of enthusiasm, he was attracted to trail running because of the simplicity and values of the discipline.
Today, he is one of the best French trail runners and undergoes demanding preparation routines that allow him to combine the pleasure of effort and setting new challenges, finding a balanced lifestyle and his love of nature.
«When I started running, Julbo sunglasses were the first things I bought. So I’ve known about the reputation of the brand for some time and when the opportunity came up to work together, I was delighted.» explains Julien. And he adds: «What I also like about my partnership with Julbo is how athletes get involved in developing its products.»
With the UTMB® as the primary goal of his season, check out his view of this iconic race through the first episode entitled Julien Chorier – Trail Minded #1. Julien shares his memories, experiences and key passages of the course. The next episode will be released in early September, after this major trail running event.
