Colder temperatures are both invigorating and nearly impossible to dress for. Too much clothing and you run the risk of sweating, which is both uncomfortable and possibly hypothermia-initiating. Not enough and you’ll never reach that sweet spot between warm and working. We designed our Peak Mission Jacket and Tights to solve this.

Running Up For Air
Running Up For Air (aka RUFA) is an endurance mountain challenge that was created to raise money in support of the fight for improved air quality for those who live in the Chamonix Valley. In winter months ascending into the Valley often means starting in smoggy, cold, polluted air and climbing up to surprisingly warmer clean air above. It is a bitter-sweet feeling to sit on a summit and look down at a glowing cloud of smog below and realize you must eventually go back down. On May 4th we'll be holding the first European edition of RUFA with the choice of running 3, 6 or 12 hours up and down the trails of Les Planards*, Chamonix. If running up and down hills is your cup-o-tea, then join us for what is guaranteed to be a fun and exhausting event. Sign Up for RUFA There will be a choice of three routes to run throughout Running Up For Air, Chamonix. *Full route details and format to be announced in the coming weeks.
Inspire Running up for Air is supporting Inspire. An NGO local to Chamonix and whose mission is to work for better air quality in the Mont-Blanc Region, to help aid the protection of the environment and climate as well as the health of local residents. Learn More
Clare Gallagher Tour
Clare Gallagher will head out on tour across Europe to talk about her obsession with running and how she’s used her career and passion for the sport to bring attention to important environmental issues. Clare finished first at the 2017 Courmayeur Champex Chamonix (CCC) Ultramarathon and set the course record. But she’s also spent her career on a mission to enjoy our home planet while also fighting to protect it. Alongside her presentation we will be screening Takayna, a running film documenting the fight for the last undisturbed tracts of Gondwanan rainforest in Tasmania. Catch Clare Gallagher and Takayna at stops across Europe.

takayna / Tarkine in northwestern Tasmania is home to one of the last undisturbed tracts of Gondwanan rainforest in the world, and one of the highest concentrations of Aboriginal archaeology in the hemisphere. Yet this place, which remains largely as it was when dinosaurs roamed the planet, is currently at the mercy of destructive extraction industries, including logging and mining.
