The 9th edition of the 24h Conti Thunder Run was held on the weekend of 22 & 23 July 2017 at its regular venue Catton Park, Walton on Trent.
Conti Thunder Run is an off-road relay race against the clock. The event, already tough and mentally challenging in good conditions, was made all the harder by torrential rain, but it was an experience not to be missed.
Since 2010, Continental have provided rubber soles to help adidas improve the grip on their high performance trainers. The Continental rubber gives the shoes up to 30 percent more grip than other soles. In 2014, around 3.5 million pairs of running shoes and 650,000 pairs of outdoor shoes were sold with a Continental rubber compound sole. Today there are more than 115 different adidas running and trekking shoes for men and women available.
