Sondre Amdahl

I get hugely motivated by watching great mountain ultra-runners like Kilian Jornet. Also, seeing my coaching clients reaching their own personal goals is very motivating for me.

Who are you, when you are not doing your sport?

When I am not running, I try to spend as much time as I can with my family. My favorite activity is skiing with my wife and our daughters (9-year-old twins). I hope I can be a good role model for my kids, and I hope they will grow up loving the outdoors.

Favorite Product and why?

It’s hard to choose, but I have two favorite products: The X-RUN ULTRA 2 in 1 shorts and the new FUSION WS AS LIGHT Jacket. The X-RUN ULTRA 2 in 1 shorts have all the pockets I need to stash gels and my mobile phone. They are also a great fit, of course! The FUSION WS AS LIGHT Jacket is lightweight and protects me from wind and rain.
