Britta Martin - Triathlete



I’ve always had an interest in sports. It was while I was studying for my sports science degree at Munich University that I became passionate about triathlon and cycling.

I run because I am a triathlete and have been for well over half of my life. I chose to give HOKA a try after almost everyone I train with transitioned over to them, and kept raving about how good they are. I am now a convert too and my favourite shoe is the MACH. I also coach for the Foot Traffic endurance coaching team and will be recommending my athletes to give HOKA a try.
