EMU RUNS TRAIL RACE

August 11, 2015

EMU RUNS TRAIL RACE

Mt Misery isn’t the most optimistically named place for a trail running event, but when it comes to picturesque Australian trails, it’s right on the money.

 

 

As a race sponsor, we were proud to be involved, and despite the cool conditions on the day, runners would have been anything but miserable if they’d been running in one of our lightweight ioMerino layers. (And we spotted at least a few out there staying warm in their ioMerino!)

One ‘runner’ who ran without any layers at all was an unusually friendly emu who joined in for an extended trot. Sadly, there were calls for him to be disqualified for not having an official race number.

 

 

The course itself, nestled in the Adelaide Hills, a short distance from ioMerino HQ in South Australia, makes its way through some classic Australian scrubland, includes bagging the peak of Mt Misery along the way, and takes in more than 1,200m of elevation along the 24km course.

 

 

By all accounts, a good time was had by all on race day which, despite being cool, was an otherwise perfect Winter’s day.

The Men’s 24km race was taken out by Matt McCabe in a cracking time of just 2:08 while Kazu Kuwata took out first place in the women’s 24km race in 2:29.

Like a lot of people, Stevi-Lee wasn’t convinced our clothes were good value. So naturally we figured she would be the perfect person to reviewer them. If we could convert her, perhaps other customers would believe her rather than the usual claims all companies make about how good their products are. Did we change this ioMerino sceptic into a believer?

Our products are priced based on many factors, and we’re happy to be totally up front about it. If you’ve ever wondered why our clothes cost what they do, or why we often discount less than other companies, you may might find this quite interesting.
