THE footrace fever in the country remains high as all roads lead to the south of the metro with RUNNR formally opening its doors in Alabang Town Center on Saturday.
RUNNR, the country’s first world class running specialty store, and Ayala Mallâ€™s Store of the Year in 2010,Â brings state-of-the-art technology and a complete selection of Â running brands to the premier business and residential area south of Manila, which has recently become the new favorite venue for running and other endurance events.
The revolutionary Footworx system –a combination of Footprint Analysis, High-speed Video Gait Analysis and Custom Insole Moulding services–has benefited a huge number of athletes since RUNNR brought the technology to the Philippines three years ago. Now with the new RUNNR at ATC, more running enthusiasts will get the help they need for improved performance and injury prevention.
The custom fitting system helps runners identify the best shoe to match their foot type and stride, which helps them run longer and more confortably.
RUNNR carries several top notch brands including Newton shoes–the choice of some of the world’s best triathletes–and CW-X compression wear. RUNNR also offers other world-class brands such as Brooks, Adidas, Nike, Vibram Five Fingers and New Balance.
All the guesswork in picking and fitting the proper shoes are eliminated by the Footworx system and RUNNRâ€™s highly-trained staff. Another huge plus is that everything that a runner needs, from sophisticated heart rate monitors to hydration equipment, are available at all RUNNR outlets.
“We want to inspire people to get into the running lifestyle by helping them find the right gear and teaching them the basics that will help them become better runners.â€ť
RUNNR is staffed by dedicated and skilled staff who are runners themselves. They can help find the right shoe for each personâ€™s specific Footype and even teach proper running form and training methods.
Also available at RUNNR are world-class running gear and accessories from Polar, Smith Optics, Fuelbelt, Nathan, GU, CEP, Spenco and Equipe.
