About SRA

WHAT

The Salomon Running Academy was established to recruit and nurture the next generation of trail runners. More than that, it is an opportunity for two generations of athletes to meet and share the true spirit and values of our sport.

It is a unique opportunity to gather the best young trail runners, between 16 and 20 years of age, from all over the world. Some of our Salomon International Team athletes will take part and share their invaluable knowledge and experience with the new generation. We'll also have various experts in place who'll hold workshops in communication, product development and running.
