Gone Running - HYROX Gear and Training Programs

The growth of HYROX has been simply phenomenal and we are extremely happy to be teaming up with PUMA, the global sponsor of the competition, our very own HYROX Gone Runner Superstar CLAIRE NESBITT and our long time physio partners Joint Dynamics, to bring you a package of gear and training programmes for you to get on board with this global phenomenon and take your fitness to the next level . 

HYROX is an inclusive global fitness race, serving people of all backgrounds and abilities on their fitness journeys to create a healthy lifestyle. A HYROX race consists of eight rounds of a 1km run followed by one functional movement. There are four different race categories to choose from – Team Relay, Doubles, Individual Open and Individual Pro – making it accessible and challenging, no matter what level of fitness or experience.

Gone Running and PUMA

PUMA has been a local partner to HYROX since the first ever race, held in Hamburg in 2018 with 600 competitors taking part. PUMA’s new worldwide partnership is testament to the global success of HYROX, which has seen more than 175,000 participants compete in over 65 races during the 2023/24 season.

The global partnership will see PUMA develop a full range of HYROX apparel, utilising its innovative Cloudspun technology that features dryCELL moisture-wicking properties. PUMA will also release bespoke HYROX colourways of existing footwear models, including the award-winning Velocity NITRO™ 3, Deviate NITRO™ 3 and Deviate NITRO™ Elite 3 – enhancing HYROX competitor performance during one of the most well-rounded tests of fitness on earth.

Commenting on the announcement, PUMA CEO Arne Freundt said: “Fitness has found a new dimension in HYROX and we are delighted to start the next chapter in the PUMA and HYROX story, bringing the exciting sport of fitness racing to an even broader audience.

PUMA and HYROX have been pioneering the sport for more than six years at a local level, and as the community grows, we will continue to work in collaboration to identify innovative ways to engage consumers and revolutionise the fitness experience for competitors across the globe.“

HYROX Founder and CEO, Christian Toetzke, said “This is the natural partnership for HYROX. PUMA has been on this journey with us since the start, and we are delighted that a brand with performance at its heart, across multiple sporting disciplines, will continue to innovate and support us as we build the global sport of fitness racing. We believe this style of training and competition is the optimal solution for the global training community and PUMA will be a fantastic partner to help us continue to spread and amplify that message over the coming years.”

PUMA will be supporting the HYROX Elite 15 – the top tier of HYROX fitness racing – who will exclusively wear PUMA’s new Deviate NITRO™ 3 running shoe throughout the season. We in Gone Running will be bringing in the very same shoe as well as the top range of PUMA road shoes, as well as a range of apparel so you too can gear up like the best in the competition.

Gone Running and Claire Nesbitt

Claire has been a member of our running club for a number of year now and we have seen her hit extraordinary heights in HYROX. This is her journey......

"I discovered HYROX in November 2022, when the first race in Asia was held in Hong Kong, and I have been obsessed ever since.

I come from a 15-year background in competitive running. I've competed in and won cross country races, built up to 10km's and half-marathons, and in the last few years I've done a couple of road marathons and podiumed in several long-distance trail races. I played sports like basketball and rugby, too. But with a busy working life, I switched to fitness classes at the gym. That's where I heard about HYROX in 2022.

With my strong running background, I signed up for the first HYROX race in Asia and took first place in the Women Open race. This qualified me for the 2023 HYROX World Championships in Manchester with half a year to transform from a skinny runner to comfortably being able to move 150kg sleds in the pro weight category.

I applied the techniques that made me a competitive runner to resistance training to build muscle and strength, as well as dialling down on HYROX-focused training.

With two years of HYROX-specific training, I have gone from an open-weight time of 1:17 to a current pro-weight PB of 1:13. I have competed and podiumed in women doubles and mixed doubles too, and I hold the current APAC record for HYROX women doubles with Clare Cheung. I'm also an ambassador for HYROX Hong Kong for the 24/25 season."

 ........and these are her impressive list of achievements in the sport.

HYROX Personal Bests (PBs):
Women Open: 1h17 (Hong Kong 2022)
Women Pro: 1h13 (World Championships 2024)
Doubles Mixed: 1h04 (Taiwan 2024)
Doubles Women: 1h02 (Hong Kong 2023, APAC record)

 

We will be inviting Claire into the shop from time to time, especially as we will be pulling together training advice up to the Hong Kong HYROX competition 23rd - 24th November 2024.
