There’s a race coming up in two Saturday’s time that I would have loved to take part in: the Adidas TR24.
It’s a 24 hour cross country race for teams of up to eight over a 10km course. Basically, you always have to have one of your team running the course over the 24 hours. So you could do, say 20km (or two laps), let someone else go out for a lap or two, followed by someone else and when you have recovered, you can go again.
It’s all part of this new drive by Adidas for their new running community testadidas.co.uk and invited participants get the following:
– Free entry to TR24 to be part of the adidas team
– Free pair of Swoop 2 trail shoes
– Free running kit (tops and bottoms)
– Free catering / refreshments on the day
– Free massages
Unfortunately, I cant take part as it is the weekend of Laura’s sister’s wedding but the team publicising the event are looking for willing participants.
As it’s part of the ‘test adidas’ trial if you fancy a go, you would also have to take part in the community with some online reviews of kit and the like, it’s at www.testadidas.co.uk which goes live this week.

From a running perspective, I did another five miler today, heading out on what has now become a familiar route to the Virgin Active gym and back.
I’ve my first practical assessment in gym instructing this weekend which will get me the first part of my PT diploma and allow me to start training people in gyms if I wish so it was good to get some practice time in on equipment that will be used in the exam.
Miles today: 5
