Salomon expanded its roster of U.S. road running athletes with the addition of professional road and track runner Maggie Montoya.
Montoya joins the Salomon team with a resume of running accomplishments, including her debut marathon time of 2:29:08 from the Chevron Houston Marathon in January 2022.
“I’m excited to join the Salomon team and be a part of the next stages of the brand’s growing road running presence in North America,” said Montoya. “I’ve enjoyed racing in the S/Lab Phantasm in my last several road races and look forward to continuing my training in Salomon as I prepare for my fall marathon. I’m grateful for this opportunity to represent Salomon alongside my teammate Noah Droddy.”
Montoya ran Division I track while attending Baylor University leading the college to the NCAA Championships in her final season placing second and earning the All-Region honors at NCAA South Central Regional in a season-best 6,000-meter time of 20:21:7. Following college, Montoya moved to Boulder, CO to join the Roots Running Project, training with fellow Salomon athlete Noah Droddy. Within five years of training with the group, she has hit several personal records, including a 32:06:87 10K that earned her a spot in the 2021 U.S. Olympic Trials and a recent 15:19 5K at the MT SAC Relays in April 2022. Montoya has her sights set on a marathon this fall, where she will wear a full Salomon kit and race in Salomon S/lab Phantasm shoes.
“We are so thrilled to finally announce that Maggie has joined the Salomon family,” said Erin Cooper, senior marketing manager, Run & Outdoor, Salomon NA. “We’ve been thoughtful about whom we want to support and represent the brand, and Maggie is a perfect fit. She is incredibly talented, and with a 2:29 debut marathon, we know she has big things ahead. She will be an integral part of the Salomon brand and product development as we continue to expand within road running.”
Montoya joins the Salomon team for a 2.5-year partnership representing Salomon apparel and footwear. Montoya will also play a key role in elevating Salomon’s road running brand stories through her platform.
