Karhu ORIGINALS TOUR packs airstream for cross-country trip
Runners Chosen for Three-month Tour Kicking-off this Fall

Three guest runners (one Finnish, two American) will be on the sabbatical of a lifetime as they climb aboard the converted Airstream for a cross-country trip as part of the Karhu Originals Tour.

Is it possible to live out on the open road? They are soon to re-discover life as running nomads, like the iconic running legends of the 70s once did, stopping to run races and visit dealers along the way.

Starting in September, these amateur runners will pilot the vintage Airstream during a three-month, 4,000-mile tour of the United States. At each stop along the route running enthusiasts can revisit the glory days of running as they walk through this mobile exhibition showcasing the evolution of running footwear.

Wesley Berg (Dayton, Ohio), Jyrki Ruohomäki (Jyväskylä, Finland) and Joe Moore (Minneapolis, MN) were chosen from hundreds of applicants who responded to the “Runners Wanted” ad campaign Karhu kicked-off earlier this spring promising “long hours, tough conditions and minimal financial rewards.”

The Karhu Originals Tour will kick-off during the 16th Annual Chicago Half Marathon festivities on September 6-9. These new Karhu ambassadors will also be participating in at least three other half-marathons, including Boston (Sept. 16), Atlanta (Oct. 7), and Dallas (Oct. 27) all part of the 13.1 Marathon series that Karhu sponsors.

Additional tour stops at select retailers, with possible race events along the way, include Washington D.C.; Charlotte and Raleigh, N.C.; Birmingham, Ala.; San Antonio and Austin, Texas; Oklahoma City, Okla.; Kansas City, MO.; Des Moines, Iowa; Minneapolis and Northfield, Minn.; Madison, Wis.; Louisville, Ky.; Cincinnati, Columbus and Cleveland, Ohio; Rochester, Syracuse, and Albany, N.Y.

Saturday Palooza

What happens when you mix a bunch of people with food, sweat, music, 110% compression gear, Newton, and On-Cloud running shoes?  You get September 29 is what you get!

On Saturday, September 29th, beginning at 8am at our Stone Oak location, Soler’s Sports is excited to partner with LLS Hero-thon and several other businesses to host a HUGE community event to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society!

There is a new ½ marathon launching in San Antonio this year called the Hero-Thon ½ Marathon.  Put on by the Leukemia and Lymphoma society, this event is on a collision course to be named the top new race in San Antonio.  All proceeds go to research for prevention and cures of these deadly diseases.

We will be having sign-ups for the Hero-thon ½ marathon on this day, and those who sign-up on that day will receive a discount…but that’s not all!  We will also have a product wear-test-palooza (can we use that word?), and anyone who shows up will be able to test some of our newest and most unique products, including 110% compression gear, Newton shoes, and On Cloud running shoes.  You will be able to run around in the gear and test it out!

There’s going to be a cape contest.  A cape contest?  Yes, a cape contest.  Whoever shows up with the best cape, wins a free entry into the Hero-thon ½ marathon, and a $25 gift certificate from Soler’s Sports.

Speaking of capes, we will have some special “hero” guests to meet the kids, and we may even have a couple of local celebrities… (oh, who will it be?)

But that’s not all!  My Fit Foods will be bringing food, as well as the Corner Bakery and…drum roll please…Sushi Zushi!

And last…but not least…my tongue is dragging…in the store that day, we will have some BIG.  If you already know us, you know we don’t have a lot of “sales.”  But I gotta shoot you straight, this is going to be good, and it will be worth your time to stop by and pick up some new gear in time to get it broken in before race day.

So, what I’m saying is…we’re just having a really big party, so come on out, sign-up for an awesome new race, check out some new gear FREE, and come prepared to take advantage of some great deals…all the while helping the Leukemia and Lymphoma society raise funds to find cures!

They’re HERE!

I have been expecting her for weeks, and I was anxious to meet her. I had heard how she could improve my running, and I had seen pictures of her.  She is…oh how do I say this?… She is like beautiful physics in motion.  Physics you say?  Yes, the thrill of some sort of Newton(ion) physics.  Well, okay that’s a weird description, but that’s what she is.  Anyway, I’m getting distracted.

They told me she was going to be stopping by soon, and I’ve been waiting, and well, the time has come!  Look who just walked in the door!  She’s dark around the toes, on her sides and the heel, with a radiant pink complexion about her on her upper.  And her sole… oh her sole has the same radiant pink.  She’s beautiful!

Hey, wait a minute!  I thought she was the only one stopping by.  Who’s he?  What?!  You’re married?  He can help me too?!  What a great team you make!  Your husband, he’s dark around the toes on his sides and around his heels too, with green on his upper and sole.  You know they say it’s not easy being green, but…that’s a nice green.  Well, you make a beautiful…err…handsome couple.  This actually works out even better, because your husband and I can go run together, and you and my wife can go run together.

So, where do we start in all this?  Soler’s Sports you say?  Okay, well I’ll tell my friends to stop by our store to meet you.  Oh really?  You’re one of a kind?  There aren’t many of you around, and you can’t be reproduced?  Well, where all will you be going?  Awesome!  All 4 Soler’s locations, and you’ll be at all of them today, Wednesday, Aug. 21.  Okay, I’ll pass the word quickly

I gotta run, it’s nice to meet you Mr. and Mrs. Newton LE.  Oh, and I’ll tell my single friends that they don’t have to be married to meet you.  Oh, you have some single friends too?  Nice.

Pre-Buy Starting Today!

Soler’s Sportswill be receiving shipments at each location of these special edition Newton Gravity running shoes next week! These hot colors were only produced in limited quantities so once these shipments sell out, you won’t be able to get them again!
