The guys over at Saucony are having an exciting week! Their new run clinics launched on Tuesday (and will be up and running on Monday and Friday next week too) and tonight they’re launching the brand new limited edition London Marathon Kinvara 5. The run clinics will be based at the new Saucony pop-up in Neal Street, which showcases Saucony running shoes through the last 60 years to celebrate the brand’s history of running. I went down for the store opening and loved seeing the vintage running shoe collection, especially the 1949 Hyde Spikes! Proper little pieces of running history.
Saucony Story of Running
The Run clinics are held in participation with The Run Lounge, and will feature free 5k training runs, starting and finishing at the Neal Street Store, as well as the opportunity to chat with The Run Lounge’s expert running coach Nick Anderson. Also, one lucky attendee at each run clinic will be picked at random to receive a full Saucony training kit, including a pair of Guide 7 running shoes, technical t-shirt, shorts and cap as well as a 30 minute one on one consultation with Nick Anderson himself. Worth putting your kicks on for ey?
Saucony have created some limited edition marathon versions of their shiny new Kinvara 5 and they’re launching the London version tonight, a full month before the Kinvara 5 goes on general sale. There’ll also be special edition shoes for the Paris and Boston marathons. I’ll be attending the launch of the London Kinvara 5 tonight, so keep a close eye on my twitter and instagram to get a first look at these limited edition beauties!
