Global leader in sports watches, dive computers and precision instruments, Suunto is sponsoring True Grit obstacle course race events in Australia for 2022 and beyond.

The new sponsorship epitomises Suunto’s mission to improve the lives of its users, providing accurate data and detailed monitoring metrics to True Grit’s participants.

The first event will be the 24-hour Enduro course in March 2022, where Suunto will also supply the major prizes.

Suunto head of Australia and New Zealand, Damian Commane said, “Always striving to enhance the lives of both elite athletes and weekend warriors, our partnership with True Grit felt like the natural next step for us.

“Combining our tough sports watches with one of the toughest obstacle courses on offer to Australians, we’re confident our partnership with True Grit will inspire more Australians to have their fittest year yet, while smashing their fitness goals.”

True Grit co-owner and national marketing manager, Courtney Butler added: “We’ve always admired Suunto, having tried and tested their watches out on the True Grit course. They are the ideal companion for participants as they train for and tackle our challenging courses. We are delighted to welcome Suunto on board as a major sponsor as we gear up for another massive year.”

Delivering a mix of physical and mental challenges, True Grit is the only Australian owned and operated military inspired obstacle course race created by Australian special forces. The course is designed to offer racers of all ages and fitness levels a sense of achievement and accomplishment.
