A miserable wet day at the start of February saw ON Running come along to Alice Holt to launch the Cloudventure shoe alongside ourselves, and our friends at Tribe Sports. We were glad it was wet because it meant mud! And you can’t test a trail shoe without mud – it’s just not ON is it?
Throughout the day we had nearly a 100 runners come and try the shoes on and come and do some of the marked 2k loops that we had set out at Alice Holt. Some people ran one loop and some people ran many a mile.. I think one chap was at the half-marathon distance when I spoke to him last. Not to forget that everyone picked up a free ON limited edition Tee shirt & Tribe protein shake. Sounds like a solid day, right?
Another highlight on the course was the ‘selfie zone’ where one lucky runner would win a pair of Cloudventure (see here) – a cool little idea and one person would end up going home with the shoes they’d been running in. How exciting!
Shoe wise – there was lots of great feedback on them. People were surprised at how light they were considering the amount of cushioning they had.. and that they were grippier than the previous model and other ON shoes they had ran in. Not to mention the comfort! This is a very comfortable shoe, that’s ideal for pounding out the miles on the trails.
We love organising events like this, so keep an eye out on our social pages for lots more in the near future. Thanks to ON & tribe for coming down!
