5km run and Marathon / Half Marathon advice, with ON running shoes
Meet 6.20pm; Run starts 6.30pm; Talks 7.15pm
Run and Become have teamed up with On running shoes, footwear sponsor of the new Stirling Marathon, to bring you a great evening with a wee 5km run and some expert running advice.
On running shoes utilise a revolutionary, yet simple technology in their shoes. Cloud technology cushions and supports the foot to have less contact time with the ground. It cushions the foot on landing and gives a firm take off to propel you forward. Very popular amongst runners and triathletes in Europe, On running shoes are now available in Scotland at Run and Become.
As with any new shoe ranges, the best way to feel what they do is take them for a run!
An opportunity to “Run on Clouds”
An On technical expert will be on hand with a test pool of shoes to tell the ON story and allow you to try a pair on a short 5km run. (You can still come and run in your own shoes if you prefer).
After your run, grab a well earned energy drink and enjoy two short talks from local experts:
Pre-race and race weekend nutrition
Nutritionist Craig Watson will give a short talk on the importance of race nutrition in the last 2-3 weeks before your race, and race day itself. Craig is a professional nutritionist holding a degree in Nutrition from Queen Margaret University, and a graduate diploma in Sports nutrition from the International Olympic committee.
The perfect taper for your race
Run and Become’s Adrian Stott, will offer tips on the perfect taper, that important 2-3 weeks of training before your big race. Adrian is a former international ultra marathon runner, with a wealth of experience tapering for marathons and ultra marathons.
If you just want to come for the talks, you are very welcome.
