Keep your eyes on the horizon this summer as Salomon launch their new Salomon Sunset Series.
What? Each of the four events in the Sunset Series involves a gentle 10km run on a scenic route while chasing a British sunset. Each run will end at a viewpoint where, weather permitting, you’ll be able to watch the sun setting before ending the evening enjoying the event village.
Visitors can speak to Salomon experts, view the latest trail running kit, watch running videos on the big screen, join the Salomon community and learn how to find your local trails. There’ll even be a Kids Trail Run workshop to keep all the family occupied.
Lookout for the Salomon Sunset Series Trailer popping up in town during the week before each event.
When? The series will be stretching its sunny rays to Leeds (20th May), Edinburgh (3rd June), London (24th June) and Bristol (8th July). A pop up Salomon Sunset Series trailer will be visiting these towns in the week before each event and will offer yoga and Indoboard sessions, talks and workshops.
Why? In a society where stress is at a record high, people take less time to play and truly connect with the outdoors. In a survey carried out by Salomon, 60% of road runners say they’d like to try trail running but weren’t sure what it entailed. Trail running gives you the space to breathe fresh air and the opportunity to truly zone out whilst you navigate tree roots, hop over obstacles and choose your own path.
The Sunset Series aims to reconnect runners with the sights, sounds and smells of nature and introduce new runners to fun of the trails.
Why sunsets? Sunsets signify the end of a working day. It’s time to take the path less trodden. It’s time to play.
