If you have used any of Salomon’s endurance running products, chances are you have directly benefited from the ingenuity of Serge Chapuis. The Project Manager for Salomon Research and Development and an employee at Salomon for nearly 40 years, Serge has put his subtle mark on the trail running world through a blend of his seemingly bottomless spring of positive energy and countless rounds of personal product tests.
However, as the inevitable passage of time will have it, Serge is ready to move on and will be retiring this year. While the trail running community will certainly miss his presence at Salomon, he certainly won’t be far from the sport. With that, we want to join Salomon in celebrating the individual who has played such a joyful role in the furthering trail running by sharing the wonderful video that they produced to celebrate Serge.
Will has been running competitively since high school, and is currently running with the HOKA Aggies, a post-collegiate club here on the central coast of California. With a preference for the humorous and the verbose, he enjoys playing the wordsmith almost as much as his daily runs.
