Running footwear and apparel brand, Saucony UK, has announced a partnership with five-time Olympian Jo Pavey as she joins the elite Saucony Hurricane Racing Team for the remainder of 2018.
The partnership will also see Pavey sporting the latest Saucony kit and supporting the brand at events, races and product launches.
On the partnership, Pavey added: “I’ve had a long career and have focused on looking after my body with careful analysis of training, good nutrition, regular massage and stretching.
“I have also become very selective about what I put on my feet. With the amount of years I’ve been competing I have amassed so much experience regarding what feels right for optimal performance and for this reason I’m very excited to be partnering with Saucony.
“I was very impressed when testing the shoes as they provide the perfect balance of flexibility and support. Looking after my feet is one of the most valuable things I’ve learned over the years. Getting the right shoe is so important to enable the feet to function properly.”
Saucony Hurricane Team Manager, Nick Hardy said: “At Saucony UK we’re delighted to have someone of Jo’s calibre join the team and feel that she completely encompasses the brand messages.
“Jo’s fun, varied lifestyle represents our ‘Run Your World’ philosophy perfectly and she’ll help us to pass this message onto a wider audience whilst providing valuable experience to the Saucony Hurricane Racing Team.”
Talking on the shoes, Jo states she will wear the brand’s best-selling Ride 10 shoes. The athlete’s racing and travelling experience provides invaluable messaging inline with the brand’s #RUNYOURWORLD Campaign, which encourages all runners to showcase their running world.
