Posted in At the Races by Matt Ward on Wed 14 Aug '13


Calling all runners driven by a desire to push boundaries, inov-8 are offering one lucky MST reader the chance to take on the Royal Parks Foundation Ultra on October 6th 2013…

As the event’s official footwear partner, inov-8 are also throwing in a pair of their stripped-back, super-gripping shoes, designed for committed athletes wanting to run naturally fast on all terrains – perfect for the ultra, which covers road, towpaths and trail.


Around 700 runners are expected to take part in the ultra, now in its second year. The 50km course offers runners the chance to enjoy some of London’s most spectacular landmarks, including Buckingham Palace, the Houses of Parliament and five of the eight Royal Parks. The ultra finishes in historic Bushy Park, Henry VIII’s old hunting ground near Hampton Court.

For a chance to win simply go to our Twitter page and simply tweet an answer to the following question with the hashtag #inov8

Q. What drives you to push your body to the limit and go those extra miles?


We will announce the lucky winner on Friday the 16th of August via the MST website news page and Twitter feed.

Entries to the RPFU close on August 19th, so this is one of your last chances to take part! Enter today and don’t miss your chance to run 50km through some of London’s most beautiful landscapes, with footwear tested to the extreme so you can produce your ultimate performance.

    The feeling when you know its farther to turn back than it is to the finish line. Then when you get there your body and mind are in total shut down as you fill up with the emotion of what an amazing achievement you have done both mentally and physically, you hurt but you know its for an amazing reason.
