Brooks and Soleus Watches will soon be coming to a track near you as part of their ‘Track Nights’ roadshow.
Last year athletes were put to the test in the Perfect Pace Challenge. That returns this year alongside two other challenges, all designed to see how fast you can “run happy”.
The Brooks team will be filming at the March 27 (St Marys) and May 10 (Manchester) dates. Not only will they be filming with standard cameras, but they will also use head cams!
The events are free to attend, and there are prizes up for grabs so it is well worth going! The three activities are detailed below with the list of dates underneath.
You. The Clock. 30m. How fast can you Run Happy in Brooks spikes?
Powering through the first beam, you will start the clock and the race is on. Flying down the 30m runway, you will smash through the second beam and all is over. What time did you run, how fast are you? All will be revealed on a large LED screen for all to see.
Prizes will be awarded to the fastest in the selection of age groups. See below for list of dates.
Soleus is challenging club runners to complete two 400m laps – one wearing a Soleus watch, the second without.
The goal is for the runner to get as close to their first lap time as possible demonstrating good pace judgement; “perfect pace”. See below for list of dates.
While wearing a Soleus GPS 1.0, participants are required to run 1-2 laps (to be confirmed) of the track at a pre-determined pace.
The winner of the challenge will be the person who runs closest to this pace. See below for list of dates.
