Run and Become, 20 Queensferry Street, Edinburgh, EH2 4QW
FREE OF CHARGE
By popular demand, we are holding another Hoka Test tour. We will have test pairs of some of the updated NEW Summer 2019 Hoka shoes for anyone to test run.
There will be a steady paced 3-4 mile group run from the store at 6.30pm, but you can run whatever distance at whatever pace you want to. On returning to the shop, grab yourself a well earned drink and give us some feedback on the shoes.
Then pitch in with your questions on running, life and the universe for a very informal Q & A session with James Stewart.
Hoka continue to make waves with their innovative running shoes. Many runners have discovered the benefit of racking up the miles in an extremely well cushioned shoe that still has a fairly low heel to toe drop. Sometimes it is hard to get the feel of a different shoe just from a wee jog around the shop, or outside on the pavement. Hoka have solved that problem with Hoka Test Tours. We will have road and trail options for you to try. And you can feel for yourself what a Hoka shoe is like on a short run.
James is a popular face on the Scottish ultra distance scene. He was a late comer to ultra running but since 2016 has been a Scottish and GB internationalist and a contributing member of the GB team which won silver medals at the 2018 European 24 hour championships. On the domestic front James won the 2019 Falkirk 8 hour race and after a couple years running abroad is having his second tilt at the West Highland Way Race later this year, a race he won in 2016. He is also a past winner of the Tooting Bec 24 hour race in London and the prestigious Rocky Raccoon 100 mile trail race in the US.
Hoka and Run and Become are aware how individual, shoe choices can be. We just want to give you an opportunity to try these shoes, and get a feel for them. We know more and more runners are trying Hoka and loving them.
All attendees on the night will go into a draw to win a pair of Hoka shoes.
