JUNE 21st FATHERS DAY, A Special Day for a Special Bloke

....age is but a number, and for running dads, the numbers that get a trophy, or an age group record, are the sweetest!!

We have some wonderful deals to bring a smile to your old pop's face this Fathers Day! 

IF YOU CARE ABOUT YOUR DAD'S KNEES,
 READ THIS, 

ALTRA is the pioneer brand in Balanced Cushioning Shoes (Zero Drop) meaning the same amount of cushioning at the heel and the forefoot. This effectively reduces the stress in the knees with every footfall. 

"Older Dad" runners are likely to have run much of their lives in conventional running shoes because in the past there was not much choice. Knee problems are common and a great way to extend the athletic prowess of your Dad is to get him to convert to Zero Drop.

Read our Blog by our resident "Old Bloke" who has now clocked up more than 1200 kms in Altra's https://gone.run/blogs/news/1000ks-in-my-altra-torin-plush
