Berkshire, United Kingdom (21st February, 2013) – Mizuno, a world leader in running shoes, football boots and other types of sporting footwear, will sponsor two high-profile races throughout March: the Eco Trail de Paris and the Reading Half-Marathon.
The Eco Trail de Paris Twin Santé® will take place on the 16th and 17th of March, beginning at the Domaine national de Saint-Cloud and ending at the Eiffel Tower; unlike the other courses available in the Eco Trail de Paris, the 18km Twin Santé® is not considered a race but more an enjoyable exploration of natural surroundings. As the non-timed event is designed to be accessible to everyone, it is open to runners and walkers of all abilities—in teams of two—for the entire 18km course.
The Reading Half-Marathon has become recognised as one of the world’s fastest half-marathon courses, with a route designed to take in many of the city’s highlights, including the university campus, Abbey Gate, Prospect Park and the Madejski Stadium. Mizuno is the headline sponsor for the event, which has remained unchanged since the first race in 1982; the course culminates at the Madejski stadium, with 15,000 spectators cheering runners on to the end—this has become known as ‘the unbelievable finish’ amongst participants.
A spokesperson for Mizuno said: “The Reading half-marathon and the Eco Trail de Paris are both fantastic events which encourage participants to have fun, explore their surroundings and boost their fitness. As a proud sponsor, we hope that everyone who takes part has fun, and we wish them all luck!”
