Shoe Updates and New Colors. Time for New Shoes!!

Its that time of year again when shoes are updated and some of your favorite shoes are available in new colors!!

The Asics neutral shoes the Nimbus and Cumulus have both been updated.

The Nimbus 12 (the Men's color option shown above), continues on as a very cushioned stable neutral shoe, now with even more cushion in the forefoot. The Nimbus 12 also now contains a wider Guidance Line, which stills give added support and now allows a little more flexibility in the forefoot. The Nimbus 12 also now has a Discreet Eye-stay construction for an even more personal fit.

The Cumulus 12 (the women's color option shown above) has a new upper to help fit the forefoot a little better. They have now made the forefoot cushioning gender specific, with the women's version slightly less dense. Lastly they added Asics' ComforDry sockliner to provide extra cushion and antimicrobial properties to keep your feet cooler and drier.

The latest high stability shoe from Asics for the 3000s series has also arrived at RRRC. The 3020 (the women's color option shown above) still offers great support for excessive over-pronators and late stage over-pronators with its Dynamic Forefoot Cradle. It now has a discreet heel unit, which works with the Impact Guidance System, giving more shock attenuation in the heel and added stability. Asics have also enhanced the personal fit with discreet eyelets.

From Saucony, the Hurricane 12, the updated Hurricane 11, still remains a cushioned stability shoe. It now has a longer medial post and expanded heel crash pad to give more support and shock attenuation. The Hurricane 12 is also built on a new last, the same last as Saucony's Ride and Guide, giving the shoe a better forefoot fit.

The season change brings new color options to some of your favorite running shoes.

From Asics the 2150 and Kayano 16 are now available in new colors for both men and women.

Ambulace Chasers 10k/5k

Last Saturday, June 19th, RRRC hosted the first annual Ambulace Chasers 10k/5k/1 mile fun run, put on by the Cooper Castle Law Firm. There were more than 200 people that came out and ran/walked and helped raise money for the Habitat for Humanity and the Legal Aid of Southern Nevada.

Stephen Morgan and Matt Wiltse, members of the RRRC race team, took first and second for the 10k.

RRRC's Leslie Wills ran the 5k, less than two weeks after running her first marathon in San Diego! All the RRRC staff came to work that morning for a special side walk sale just for the race.

Thanks to all the race coordinators for putting on such a fun event and to all those who came out and participated making this year's race a success!! Results and pictures for the event can be found on the Ambulace Chasers website.Share/Save/Bookmark
