2 Locations for 2017 #Zero25k – Interested? – All Running Matters

Who’s looking for some help starting with their fitness goals for 2017?

Check out the #Zero25k program that Seán has organised for the past number of years from our Oranmore store. He won’t be hands on this year as he’s based in Dublin now (and hopefully establishing a program there too) but he has left the program in the capable hands of Cathal & Trisha and will be overseeing the progress each week through the Running Matters facebook group.

I’m trying to gauge the level of interest in my yearly #Zero25k program which would kick off again in a matter of weeks (14th January precisely) – now in its 5th or 6th year of operatio…

Reflecting on road safety – Be Safe Be Seen 

A recent article on IrishRunner.com served as a reminder on a subject that really is an annual need – Road Safety.

As more and more new people take to the paths, city streets and country roads each season as runners, walkers or cyclists; the old message stays the same – Be Safe, Be Seen!

Dry your running shoes effectively…

There’s no getting away from the fact it’s that time of year when every second run is sure to be in a rain shower or through puddles. Shoes, socks and feet are going to get wet. That’s a fact!! The trick is getting the shoes dry for the next run.

#GottaRun with Brooks Mazama Trail Running Shoes – #RunHappy off piste too!!

Just arrived in Oranmore, the brand new Brooks Mazama is their lightest and fastest trail shoe making the most of every effort on rocky and undulating terrain with strategic protection and a grippy outsole to keep you and your feet safe in any conditions.

Features of the shoes are:

  • BioMoGo DNA midsole cushioning dynamically adapts to every step and stride
  • Progressive Diagonal Rollbar (PDRB) guides the body back into its natural motion pattern
  • Full-Length Segmented Crash Pad accommodates any foot landing and delivers smooth heel-to-toe transitions
  • Updated V-Groove folds deeper inward to absorb and disperse impact outward
  • Rugged outsole provides great traction on wet surfaces and tricky terrain
  • Conformable saddle with adjustable eyelets pulls from the heel to wrap the midfoot in a secure fit
  • Durable water-resistant (DWR) finish stands up to the elements

We can’t wait to pull a pair on and give the trails a good thrashing with these!
