Roll became known in the ultra-endurance world after winning the EPIC5 Challenge in 2010—a race comprised of five Ironman-distance triathlons on five Hawaiin islands in under a week. He is an author of health and wellness books, including Voicing Change and Finding Ultra, and he launched the Rich Roll podcast in 2013.
“From its team of extraordinary athletes to its unassailable legacy for crafting the best, most innovative outdoor and adventure gear on the planet, partnering with Salomon is an absolute dream come true and a family I’m proud to join,” said Roll.
“Rich’s genuine and authentic voice is an inspiration to many, especially within the running community, and we’re beyond excited to be working with him,” said Jenny Taylor, VP Marketing, Salomon North America. “Rich is not only at the forefront of endurance sports and nutrition, but he truly values the importance of amplifying the voices of others through his platform. With this new partnership, we look forward to working with him to elevate meaningful brand stories and supporting his upcoming endeavors.”
Roll joins Salomon for a two-year partnership and will represent the brand’s gear and elevate Salomon brand stories on his platform.
