As part of the running community, we at Sportsshoes strive to set an example of helping to support our UK charities.
We are calling on the Strava community to join together and run as many miles as possible to support the UK based charity ‘A Mile in Her Shoes’ in our FURTHER THAN 500 challenge.
Inspired by the benefits of running, A Mile in Her Shoes uses physical activity as a tool to empower women, including those affected by homelessness, by providing a means of exercising, socialising, boosting confidence and raising self-esteem.
500 miles is the optimum lifespan of a running shoe, and just one pair of shoes can make a big difference to the life of a vulnerable person. That’s why, in partnership with ASICS, we are committed to donating a pair of ASICS running shoes for every 500 miles that we collectively run as a club.
Run or walk as many miles as you can, anytime from September 14th – 21st 2020.
Join us in helping to raise money and awareness for a great cause.
It’s FREE to take part, simply JOIN THE STRAVA CLUB now and start running some miles. We’ll do the rest!
Get involved and help change lives through sport.
This challenge is open to all members of the Sportshoes.com Run Club.
All participants who contribute to the challenge will also\ receive a 10% discount code for Sportsshoes.com.

At this time, all runners should protect their health and safety and that of others by social distancing while running. Please stay up-to-date on the latest news and guidelines from the CDC, WHO, and your local and national authorities.
