Brooks Green Silence $100

Brooks Green Silence $100
The Green Silence is Brooks’ first new racing shoe in a decade.  

The shoe demonstrates that performance and sustainability are compatible; many of the components are made from recycled plastics and the shoe is built with water-based adhesives and uses soy-based inks. The new midsole geometry provides flexibility and cushioning, with just enough outersole for traction and durability. The upper is open mesh with a nicely cushioned tongue that opens only on the lateral side in order to provide extra medial support. The shoes have a unique appearance, as the contrasting red and yellow colors are transposed, so the shoes aren’t identical, and the midsole of the right is red, while the left is yellow. The curved shape favors the higher-arched feet, however the roomy forefoot may allow enough wiggle room for lowerarched feet to find an acceptable fit.

  • Sizes: men 4–12,13,14 (unisex)
  • Weight: 8.0 oz. (men’s 11)
  • Shape: semi-curved to curved
  • Fit: snug heel, wide forefoot For: medium- to high-arched feet with neutral biomechanics
  • Range: efficient runners - up to a marathon; heavy strikers - up to 20K or just beyond

Newton Gravitas=Gravity $175

Newton Gravitas=Gravity $175
Newton’s neutral trainer Gravitas=Gravity (Gravitas is Latin for gravity) has reached the second round, with some improvements. The upper continues with the same stretchy airmesh as before, but has altered the overlays to provide the saddle-like support with a bit more open forefoot.  

The midsole features a denser foam throughout, both for durability and improved responsiveness. The heel has been slightly reshaped to aid in transition—yes, you’re expected to land on your midfoot or forefoot, but it takes some getting used to—as does the aforementioned reshaped heel. The outersole has a tougher rubber compound on the actuator lugs, blown rubber beneath the toes, and carbon rubber in the heel. Bottom line? The shoe has been upgraded, adding value to a well-designed, high-end shoe.

NEUTRAL PERFORMANCE

Sizes: Men 6.5–13,14; Women 5–12

Weight: 11.2 oz. (men’s 11); 8.9 oz. (women’s 8)

Shape: semi-curved

For: medium- to high-arched feet with neutral biomechanics

Vasque Transistor FS $100

Vasque Transistor FS $100
Here Vasque takes a different approach to construction and improves performance in the process. Using a new, better-fitting last that’s contoured to represent the bottom of your feet (most other lasts are fairly flat-bottomed), the construction merges the Strobel board and innersole for the first time in a trail shoe.  

Vasque’s Foot Sync uses its Integrated Custom Footbed over a Flux Foam Strobel board (similar to other EVA boards) to allow the midsole and upper to fit together a bit better. Since the fit elements are distributed between both the upper and the midsole, rather than all in the upper as in most shoes, the shoes fit a bit differently. Generally, medium- to high-arched feet will be best served here, but since it has good volume, it can accommodate a foot that’s bit on the fuller side, as well. A hollow space under heel gives the ride both a more responsive and stable feel. The tread has a grippy traction, the large zigzag lugs flexing well with the sole. For its performance, fit, and innovation, the Transistor FS earned our Best Trail Shoe award.

La Crosse Fitness Festival

Running a marathon is not something that anyone should ever take lightly. Running 26.2 miles puts huge stress on a person's feet, knees, hips, back, joints, and tendons. Toughening one's body to handle this level of stress without incurring injuries requires at least a year of consistent training to build up to it. To put it bluntly, if you are not already running at least 15 to 20 miles per week as part of your regular fitness regimen, then you should not be considering running the La Crosse Marathon.Below is a 24-week plan that is intended to get a healthy reasonably fit runner into physical condition so that he or she can complete a marathon with a minimum of difficulty. The plan is deliberately conservative: some individuals or more experienced runners may find that they are able to progress faster than this schedule indicates; if so, they can increase the distances, frequency, or the intensity of their runs. On the other hand, if someone finds that he or she cannot progress at the rate the schedule calls for, he or she is advised to switch to the half marathon for this year.

The Series consists of a USAT&F certified marathon, a 22-mile Euro Cross-Country marathon on the famous Lake Geneva path, Half Marathon, 10K, and 5K road races, and a marathon walk. The course is a challenging and picturesque route around the perimeter of Geneva Lake. The scenic views and unbelievable hills combined with a final run on an ancient Indian trail set the stage for a very memorable marathon. The marathon will be both demanding for the best runners and an opportunity not to be missed for those runners looking for the ultimate marathon challenge.

The start AND finish for the 2010 Madison Marathon will be held on Madison's Capitol Square! We've listened to your comments and agree: There is no more beautiful place in Madison than the Capitol. There are more access points to the Capitol Square so cars will not be backed up getting to the start the way they were at the Alliant Energy Center. More hotel rooms are located downtown so many participants can walk to the start/finish

Wisconsin Marathon

The Wisconsin Marathon was created to fill the need for a quality, spring time, long distance running event in the Midwest, specifically, the Chicago area. The idea was to create an event with a fun-filled atmosphere that was more about the joy of running, than the stress of competition. With the help of the Kenosha Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, a race location was found, and the Wisconsin Marathon was born.The Owners and Directors of the Wisconsin Marathon have been heavily involved in the Running Industry since 1987. Runners and endurance athletes themselves, they know what it's like to train and race, and they know what participants are looking for before, during, and after the race.
