Thurs Evening Fun Run + Running Shoe Innovations Talk
June 6 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join us at 6 p.m., Thursday, June 6th for a free fun run from the store followed by a talk about running shoe innovations with Stan Hockerson. All paces and ability levels are welcome and no one gets left behind! Afterward, enjoy tasty pizza from Savory Cuisines Catering, beer from Avery Brewing Co. (for runners 21 and older) and other cold beverages.
Hockerson has spent his career examining, innovating and selling running shoes. After running competitively and studying kinesiology in college, Hockerson worked in some of the first running shops in California in the mid-1970s and started looking at shoe designs with a critical eye. He began sketching ways to improve the functionality of shoes and received his first of many running shoe patents in 1979 at the age of 24. The Albuquerque, N.M., resident has worked for several brands and continues to consult with shoe companies while also owning several running stores.
The run starts at 6 p.m., while the post-run talk will begin at about 7 p.m.
