Athletes will utilize the brands latest collection of run-specific products
Santa Rosa, Calif. – June 6, 2017
Buff, Inc., the U.S. subsidiary of BUFF®, creators of versatile performance headwear, is proud to announce its formidable group of running ambassadors for 2017. The world-renowned brand has added accomplished trail runners, Suzanna Bon and Zach Miller to a team already comprising the likes of Anton Krupicka, Ian Sharman, Adam Kimble, Michael Wardian and Gina Lucrezi.
The new and improved team comes at a time when BUFF® continues expanding its line of run products with the additions of innovative designs such as the BUFF® UV Arm Sleeves and BUFF® Pack Run Cap. Both of these products deliver essential UPF sun protection, are light and packable, and are made from highly breathable fabric that wicks moisture and dries quickly, keeping runners on the trails for longer.
“We are proud of this team who’s constantly pushing the limits.” said Shirley Choi Brunetti, VP and General Manager, Buff, Inc. “It’s great to be able to attract so many prestigious names in the sport. We are extremely happy with our latest innovative running products and can’t wait to see how these amazing athletes utilize them on the roads and trails this season.”
2017 is shaping up to be an exciting year for each of the ambassadors as they take on seemingly impossible challenges, some of which have already been achieved. Michael Wardian was one of 32 men and women to finish the 2017 World Marathon Challenge. Not only did Wardian complete the challenge of running 7 marathons, over 7 days on 7 different continents he was also the fastest ever to do it averaging 2:45:57.
Look for Wardian and Sharman competing for the podium at the 2017 Western States Endurance Run in Squaw Valley, CA this June and others pursuing more FKT’s (Fast Known Times) on the trails of North America.
