2015 FALKE TRAIL RUN SERIES (Trilogy Trail Run – Warwick)

Following the success of the inaugural FALKE Trail Run Series in 2014, keen outdoor enthusiasts should diarise the exciting schedule of runs set for 2015. Last year saw hundreds of trail adventurers flocking to wine farms in the Simonsberg Conservancy to participate in this seasonal trail run series and the 2015 schedule promises greater variety, new venues and unbelievable scenic beauty.

The Winter Trail Run will take place at Uitkyk on Sunday, 23 August, while trail runners can celebrate spring at L’Avenir on Sunday, 18 October. The series will wrap up with FALKE’s Summer Trail Run on 13 December at Warwick Wine Estate.

According to FALKE marketing manager Carol Stent, this trail run series is a perfect fit for the FALKE brand and allows runners to benefit from the technical and functional advantages of FALKE’s Advance Performance range.

The range offers a variety of advanced performance running socks, which have been specifically engineered to suit the South African climate and terrain. The sport-specific socks feature FALKE’s trademark Drynamix Moisture Management System, hand-linked and seamless toe construction as well as strategically placed cushioning to protect feet in critical high strain areas. In addition, the socks offer gentle elastic arch support, reinforced heel and toes and distinctive cushioning to ensure lasting durability.

The FALKE Hidden Cool Trail Run socks are available from the Dirtopia Trail Centre and leading sports retailers. Retailing from R55,95, this sock remains one of FALKE’s top sellers with great ventilation, wearer comfort and superb moisture management properties.

The shorter 5km and 7,5km routes have been designed to encourage newcomers, family and friends to enjoy the bounty of Mother Nature, while the longer 12.5km and 15km distances feature great, flowing single-track with magnificent views of the winelands and Table Mountain in the distance rewarding participants.
