Eugene Marathon & Bloomsday 12k
For most of us, the warm weather heralds peak racing season. Here in the Pacific NW of the US, home of SKORA headquarters, the list of local races seems endless. We are very excited to announce our presence at two great events: The Eugene Marathon and the Lilac Bloomsday 12k. The organizers of both events each host an expo in the days preceding their respective race.
The 2012 Eugene Marathon is held on Sunday April 29th. Last year nearly 7,000 athletes crossed the finish lines of the 5k, half marathon, and full marathon. During the two days before the marathon (April 27th-28th), packet pickup takes place at the Health and Fitness Expo. Here you can get a massage, pick up some freebies from vendors, learn about new products, and enjoy a great discount on SKORA shoes at our booth. We’ll also be giving away a free pair of SKORA shoes to one lucky runner, so be sure to visit the booth!
Bloomsday is a very unique event. Boasting over 50,000 finishers, it is a 12k taking place in Spokane, WA on May 6th. The race is the largest event to be given a “green” certification by the Council for Responsible Sport. Bloomsday also hosts one of the largest fitness, health, and running expos in the country. It is free to the public May 4th and 5th. SKORA will also be attending this trade show, offering a great discount on SKORA footwear. We will also be giving away a free pair of shoes at our booth! If you will not be at the Eugene event, we hope to see you at Bloomsday!
If you will be attending either of these two events, visit us! This is a great chance to meet the team (and for us to meet you!), ask any questions you may have, and try the shoes.
We hope to see you there! Run Real.
