Runners are getting smarter and more comfortable running shoes are becoming more practical.From running shoes that keep you on the ground and help keep you comfortable, to shoes that make running a little less dangerous, and finally to shoes with a little more traction, running shoes have all the modern conveniences you'd expect.But the shoes you actually wear and wear them with are still the same...
Jelle’s Marble Run, one of the country’s oldest running trails, is back after a three-year hiatus.
The run from Stone’s run in the city centre to the nearby river was completed last year, and was the first event organised in the run’s five-year history.
The running venue will be reopened in mid-January, with the same staff and facilities that were previously run by the Runners’ Welfare Trust.
It will also be hosting an annual run to benefit the Runways Trust in the Newbridge area, which was created to help runners who are in need of help and care.
“It’s an incredible opportunity for everyone to come together to celebrate the sport and get behind the running,” said Jelle.
“We hope to raise money for the Runaways Trust which supports runners in need across the country.
It’s a very touching event for everyone.”
Jelle’s ran in the same area as the 2012 World Championships, and is a favourite for runners who want to follow the same course.
It is one of several popular courses across the city, which have attracted thousands of runners for the past two years.
At the end of March, a group of runners from across the US will take part in the 100m final in the prestigious Long Beach Classic.
It will be followed by the 100 metres race at the World Championships in San Diego in April.
