The organiser of the popular Windsor Running Festival, which includes the Windsor Half Marathon and the Running4Women Windsor 10K, has confirmed HOKA ONE ONE® as the Official Sportswear Partner for 2016.
HOKA ONE ONE® is the world’s fastest-growing, premium running shoe brand. It was launched in 2009 by two life-long runners who had spent years handcrafting and shaping lightweight shoes with extra-thick midsoles. Initially embraced by ultra-runners due to their enhanced cushioning and inherent stability, HOKA now offers shoes for all types of athletes who enjoy the unique feel the shoes provide.
The Running4Women Windsor 10K takes place on Saturday 24th September and the Windsor Half Marathon on Sunday 25th September 2016. Both races take place in the prestigious, iconic location of Windsor Great Park with the start and finish on The Long Walk, attracting thousands of runners from near and far each year.
HOKA ONE ONE® will be providing prizes for both races and will have a presence in the race village over the race weekend. Every Running4Women Windsor 10K finisher will also receive a HOKA ONE ONE t-shirt.
The Running4Women Windsor 10K is an all-inclusive event for runners of all levels from club runners and seasoned athletes through to charity runners and beginners.
The Windsor Half Marathon is in its 34th year, which makes it one of the longest established running events in the UK. Boasting one of the most picturesque courses in the world, the race is set in stunning surroundings and features stunning views of Windsor Castle.
For the first time this year the Macdonald Windsor Hotel WHM Corporate Challenge takes place as part of the main event, giving businesses and their guests the opportunity to compete in Windsor Great Park, whilst encouraging fitness in the workplace and raising money for local charities.
Race Director Peter Hier commented, “We are proud to confirm HOKA ONE ONE as our Official Sportswear Partner for the Windsor Running Festival. HOKA is a brand that is committed to creating the very best footwear for runners, and it is a perfect partner for our half marathon and 10K races that count among the most prestigious events in the British sporting calendar. We are looking forward to welcoming HOKA ONE ONE in the race village, during what is set to be fantastic weekend of sporting achievement.”
Gill Daljiat, Head of Marketing at HOKA ONE ONE, confirmed, “The Windsor Running Festival is a great race weekend in a wonderful setting and it’s with this in mind that we are extremely happy to partner with the organisation. Together we hope to build upon the activation of this event and to make the experience memorable for all participants, both now and for the future.”
