HOKA & TomTom Demo Evening

22nd June 2015

Front Runner - Hoka - Tom Tom


HOKA One One & Tom Tom Demo Evening at Front Runner

On Monday 22nd June we're happy to welcome both HOKA One One and Tom Tom to Front Runner for a Demo Event.

HOKA One One & TomTom have both introduced some unique technology to the running scene in the recent past. HOKA were the brand behind the maximal running trend, introducing 'Over-sized' cushioning and 'Meta-Rocker' technology to give the most cushioned and smooth running experience.

HOKAs are different and when things are different we're often unsure, this evening will be a great chance for any sceptics or die-hard HOKA fans to try several different models, road and trail. You'll be able to take them from Front Runner around Endcliffe Park. This will give you the opportunity to test the shoes on tarmac and some technical trails. HOKA's tech rep will also be present to answer any questions you have about the brand and technology. Shoes that will be available to try on the night are:

Road - Clifton, Hoaka, Conquest

Trail - Rapa Nui Trail, Mafate Speed

(Mens & Womens)

Tom Tom burst onto the running watch scene a few years ago and were one of the first brands to introduce watch strap integrated heart rate monitors. Using optical technology located in the watch strap optical light sensors view down into the capillaries to read your heart rate. This method of measurement requires no heart rate strap around the chest and therefore no irritation.

On top of this the functionality of the Tom Tom Cardio and GPS units is brilliant. They're intuitive and very easy to use but not short of functions and technical feedback.

For your chance to use both the units, go for a run and review you session please come and join us on Monday 22nd.
