We have been settling in well with our Roxborough
store. It is the biggest shop in the Amphibian King network and along
with the store in Oranmore we will continue to bring you the service,
shoes and accessories that you deserve.
For many, Autumn is marathon season. The final stretch in a long season of 5k, 10k and half marathon races culumnating in conquering the 26.2miles.
your goal, whichever your race or whatever your distance, put some
Spring into tired legs with new shoes to keep you going the distance.
Don't leave off changing your marathon shoes until the last minute, it
is too late by then. You need time to adjust.
Our Intermediate Marathon Runners
are currently on Week 13 of a 16 week plan, there may be some ideas
there that work for you, you can dip in and out using some of the
sessions to suit your own running.
For the past 2 years, each January, we've organised a #Zero25k group from our shop in Oranmore.
This has served as an introduction to
running for so many people over the past two years and there is such
demand for it we are going again!!
Have a read about the group here
and you will hopefully be motivated to join us or invite your friends
to join us as we go about setting up a new group. Some of our runners
have gone on to join local clubs, others have gone onto running
Marathons, its up to you where your running brings you.
Starting the 26th of October we will be hosting our #Zero25k program in two locations, completing just before Christmas:
#AKGalway - based from our store in Oranmore, Galway
#AKLimerick - based from our store in Roxborough, Limerick
All we ask for is that you are
committed to following your fitness development for 9 weeks
trust our trainers to guide you correctly (no jumping ahead in the program!!)
reasonably healthy and injury free (if in any doubt get your Doctor's advice)
There is no online registration for this season, you must call into the
relevant store in person to register and it is of course, FREE of CHARGE!!
Our cool brands have provided us with some FREE Goodies to give away with shoe purchases.
We will also be
developing demo nights where we will host our specialist brands, giving
you a chance to product test new shoes as part of a run and avail of
special discounts on purchases.
Stay tuned to our Newsletter for updates on this and other items.
Naturally at this stage of the year you are going to need more outerwear suited to the elements.
As identified above, visibility has to be
your friend so don't be put off by strong, vibrant colours, embrace
them, they keep you safe!!
Below is a selection of products we have
selected as perfect for Autumn running. Featuring wind proof materials
to prefect body chill they also have breathable fabrices to help
regulate body temperatures. Pop in and try them on.
