Over 60 people turned out to Run 4 It, Bridge of Allan for the Salomon City Trail Run on Thursday 7 May 2015. This City Trail run was designed to let runners try out shoes, and trail running in a group, and see what trail running can be like!
Salomon Trail Tour athlete Matt Ward was joined by Salomon sponsored athletes Tom Owens and Joe Symonds along with Salomon Ambassador Angela Mudge, who herself is a former World Mountain running champion, to aid the group who had the pleasure of trialing Salomon’s new hybrid trail shoes on their 4km run around Bridge of Allan’s trails. The trail visited nooks and crannies of the local area, where many runners wouldn’t usually think to visit, and really put their trail running shoes to the test!
The group were also treated to a nutrition tasting session in the shop, along with a goody bag with running treats inside including some very comfy socks!
When all the runners returned there was a Q&A session with the athletes who answered questions including what kind of nutrition they found worked best and where they should start when they want to get into hill running for the first time. It was great having such trail running experts among us, and it was certainly enlightening listening to them!
Such was the success of the evening, that it is hoped that the City Trails run will become a monthly event from the store and Salomon will be bringing along trial shoes for each night. To find out more head over to our facebook page, as first news about more events will be published there soon!
