SAY HELLO TO JAN FRODENO

SAY HELLO TO JAN FRODENO

The HOKA EU 2020 roster was already the strongest it has ever been. With 90 of the best athletes in Europe joining forces with HOKA ONE ONE, including 53 of the Continent’s finest triathletes, we were already in pretty good shape.

But HOKA is a bold, innovative and fearless brand. We don’t stand still for too long. Which is why we’ve just made our team even stronger and added a global superstar to the mix.
Jan is bit of a triathlon legend. For one, he’s an Olympic champion, winning gold in Beijing in 2008. But that success was just the beginning. Since that golden moment 12 years ago, the athlete affectionately known as ‘Frodo’ has gone on to establish himself as one of the sport’s all-time IRONMAN® greats.

After claiming his first IRONMAN® world title at Kona in 2015, Frodo has gone on to top the podium in Hawaii on two more occasions, most recently when breaking the course record last year. If two world titles over the half-IRONMAN® distance and further podium finishes weren’t enough, Jan is also the world record holder for the full-IRONMAN® distance.

Jan is an athlete at the top of his game. But he is also more than an athlete. Frodo is fearless in his approach to life. He is purposeful in setting goals and achieving them and bold in his training regime.

Jan is passionate in his desire to connect with fans and followers of the sport. He always finds the positive in any situation. We’re excited to join forces with Jan for the next three years – and beyond.

It’s time to raise the game. It’s time to fly.

Read more about why Jan chose HOKA for the next phase of his career.

10 Things I Wish I’d Known About Trail Running Before I Started
10 Things I Wish I’d Known About Trail Running Before I Started

January 21, 2021

I started running on trails back in 2005. I was living on the eastern shore of Maryland and accidentally found myself running on a trail one day as a way to add some distance to my road run. I loved it from the first crunch of dirt and quickly found myself wanting to get as many of my running miles on the trails as possible. I liked how I’d sometimes get a glimpse of a turtle or a deer, how I saw a lot less man-made things, how the pine trees smelled, and how I didn’t have to worry about cars. I wrote this piece to help anyone who may just be getting into trail running, or who has always wanted to try it but wasn’t so sure it was for them.
