Saucony, the pioneer of running performance has announced the launch of their ‘You, But Faster’ Strava Challenge to celebrate the creation of the Saucony Endorphin collection.

The challenge which will run between the 29th June and 19th July, sees the brand ask runners to record a 2020 5km personal best to be in with a chance to win all three pairs of the all-new Endorphin Collection — Speed, Shift and Pro — shoes engineered by athletes and made for the everyday runner.

Upon completing their first 5k of the challenge, entrants will receive a link from Strava to register. All athletes must register in order for their fastest times to be considered.

Organised by the Saucony Run Club Strava Group, which has over 25,000 members, the challenge supports the launch of the Endorphin Collection – Saucony’s breakthrough new running shoe range, designed to make you go the distance.

Developed with 12 world class athletes who ran over 5,000 miles in 25 prototypes, the Endorphin Collection is a lineup of shoes that delivers a new feeling of fast for every kind of run.

Made up of the Endorphin Pro, the Endorphin Speed and the Endorphin Shift, Saucony has designed a collection that will offer a fast option for every kind of run: race day, speed day and every day.

Gareth Lloyd, Saucony UK & Ireland Marketing Manager comments: “The Endorphin Collection is all about developing speed as a runner and so we’re delighted to have teamed up with Strava for this challenge to put this to the test.

“As we hit the peak of summer the focus has changed to running fast over shorter distances making this the ideal distance for people wanting to challenge themselves in the coming weeks.

“We can’t wait to see all the fast times and PB’s recorded.”

The ‘You, But Faster’ with Saucony Challenge will take place between the 29th June – 19th July. To find out more please go to
