Runs In the Family: This Month, We’re All For Running!


We like to say that one good run will lead to another. If you’re starting to run for the first time, welcome to the club! Beginning a training program is exciting and challenging, and your running shoes are a major tool to help you reach your goals. If you’re a seasoned runner, then welcome to the Canadian Footwear club, as well!

When looking for a fresh pair of running shoes, the options can get overwhelming. Over the coming month, we’re celebrating runners of all levels while providing some fun challenges, giveaways, and insights on the technical side of running shoes, that will keep you comfortable, motivated, and active for months to come.

Do you need a neutral or stability supported shoe? One with plush cushioning or a firmer midsole? Something light and responsive or something durable that will keep you comfortable through long runs? All of these questions – and more – we’ll be answering.

As of late, we have seen a growing number of virtual running formats in the form of apps. These challenges have ranged from 1km time trials to 100-mile events. An app that the Canadian Footwear team swears by and is active on, is Strava!

Join the Canadian Footwear Run Club!

We encourage you to join the Canadian Footwear Running Club on Strava where we have structured challenges with your mobility and drive in mind. We’ll help you stay on track, while providing a platform to create a sense of community and maybe even some friendly competition! Setting up challenges with a virtual running club can improve your performance in new ways, shake up your routine, and the incentive of someone seeing your results or comparing them with others amicably, we feel, is inspiring during these unprecedented times.

Here’s how to join the Canadian Footwear Strava Club:
