Primaloft will again support the OMM

PrimaLoft will sponsor this year’s Original Mountain Marathon, the company has announced.

It is the second time the insulation brand has backed the event.

The two-day race will this year take place in the Brecon Beacons in October, the 45th year of its running. It was originally the Karrimor International Mountain Marathon and is the forerunner of many of the present-day adventure races.

PrimaLoft makes high-performance insulation that features in OMM gear and is offering race participants the chance to win a Rotor Smock and a Mountain Raid sleeping bag, both of which have PrimaLoft One insulation.

OMM director Andy William said: “Our brand is all about functionality and safety in the mountains, as well as pushing the limits.

“Our partnership with PrimaLoft reinforces this important message.”

Jochen Lagemann, sales and marketing director of PrimaLoft Europe said: “It’s exciting to see how the Original Mountain Marathon has grown over the years to establish itself as a world leading event.

“We’re proud to be supporting such a well respected race.

“OMM’s product range has been carefully designed and engineered to ensure high performance in such challenging events.

“The hydrophobic and lightweight benefits of our insulation ensure participants are kept dry and comfortable during mountain marathons, which can often take place in extreme weather conditions.”

The OMM will be held in the Brecon Beacons on 26 and 27 October. More details are on the OMM website.
