The most important product when it comes to running is shoes and this is why we are ecstatic to announce that the Athlete's Foot Bendigo will be a sponsor of the O'Keefe Half Marathon event.
In our basic training plan on our event website we highlight the importance of being fitted correctly for shoes from a recommendation of a podiatrist, or experienced staff that have means to correctly fit you.
You wouldn't put the tyres of a mini on a 4WD as it would end in tears. Wearing the wrong shoes will end in tears with the heavy training required for long distance running. Having the correct shoes fitted assists to prevent injury and also makes your running experience all the more enjoyable.
Go into the local Bendigo Store of the Athlete's Foot and see Graham Beet and his staff.
I just got fitted by Athlete's Foot Bendigo with an amazing pair of the New Balance 1260V5 after doing just under 1000km's in my last pair of these shoes without any issues at all. Got that bounce back again and only if I was running in the marathon instead of organising these shoes would be perfect for the race.
Instead of supporting overseas sports stores or big department chains, let's support local traders and franchisees that provide our local community with jobs. When you need a new pair of running shoes go in and see Graham and the team at the Athlete's Foot Bendigo.
