Taupo, New Zealand (August 18, 2015) – With it’s super-light yet super-cushioned construction, the HOKA ONE ONE Clifton was 2014’s runaway shoe of the year, winning numerous magazine awards and taking running retail stores by storm. And now, its much-anticipated update has arrived, the Clifton 2.
For 2015, the award-winning Clifton receives an updated upper with a focus on lightweight comfort. A softer, lightly padded tongue provides increased protection across the foot, and structural overlays improve midfoot support and connectivity with the chassis under your foot. The industry-leading ride remains unchanged, and the road-focused outsole includes strategically placed rubber pods to improve durability. When all is said and done, one of our favorite shoes just got better.
Like its predecessor, this shoe is ideal for long to ultra-distance training runs and is quick enough to race from 10km and beyond. If you want a lightweight, maximally cushioned shoe for high-mileage training or long distance racing looking to the HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 2.
The HOKA ONE ONE Clifton 2, with a RRP of $229.95, is available online at www.hokaonone.co.nz and the following running specialty stores nationwide: Shoe Clinic – Wellington, Nelson, Riccarton & Invercargill | Shoe Science – Albany, Mt Eden, Newmarket & Takapuna | Podium Podiatry - Tauranga & Whakatane | Sportsworld – Whakatane | Outside Sports - Queenstown, Te Anau & Wanaka | The Frontrunner – Christchurch, Timaru, Dunedin & Queenstown
Running with your dog is a great way to stay active, reconnect with your furriest family member, stay safe during solo runs, and reinforce positive pet behaviours along the way.
But there are some guidelines to follow to make sure you and your pet are running smoothly.
When I first won Ironman New Zealand in 2001 I finished in a time of 8:24:25hr 19yrs later I finish 6th in 8:14:36 as a 47yr old! At least I'm going faster and faster!
I know I can go so much better after such a limited build up in my running preparation so I'm looking forward to when we can race again, and full of motivation to race to my potential and keep pushing the boundaries as a nearly 48yr old!!
Part of the beauty of trail running is that even when the run doesn’t feel so good, being in nature can have its own positive impact on our sense of wellbeing and inner peace – even with no races on the calendar for the next few months.
Whether you’re an experienced trail runner, or a runner looking for the right shoes to start running trail, we hope this guide helps.
