This idea came out of two shoes that I don’t currently use and therefore wanted to donate to a dedicated runner in need.
Many a times we come across a promising runner who cannot afford expensive running shoes or gear. Much of our own gear is changed while it still quite usable.
I have hosted a “Virtual Running Shoe & Gear Bank” on a Facebook event site. If you have a running shoe or gear you can give away for free then please add the details to this spreadsheet.
If you know someone in need you can recommend a shoe/gear from the list and get the owner and recipient to connect (phone, FB, email,etc).
If you don’t want to go to the trouble of going to Facebook or face problems in accessing the spreadsheet, just leave the details of your donation in a comment below and I will take care of the rest.
I have two pairs of shoes. Both almost brand new which came to me for testing. One is a Reebok ONE Cushion (Size UK 10) and the other a Puma Mobium Elite (Size UK 9). I am not using these shoes so want to give them away to someone needy (dedicated HM/FM runner who cannot afford expensive shoes).
I would request you (especially the coaches out there) to please recommend who these shoes should go to.
The Reebok ONE Cushion will work best for a heavier runner (75+kgs) who has a low to flat foot arch. The Mobium Elite will work best for a light and fast runner with a high foot arch.
Please comment or message me with your recommendations. I want to give these away asap so the runner can also train in them for ADHM14 or SCMM15.
I will ship them for free anywhere in India.
