We’re delighted to announce that Salming Sports will be a sponsor of parkrun Nordics in 2018.
Salming Sports have a well-established history across a range of indoor sports, leading the way for footwear for squash, floorball, handball and badminton. It wasn’t until 2012 that the journey began in their running shoe range and they have quickly established themselves as an innovative and progressive brand in the running industry, with a range of shoes to suit all distances and terrain. And their funky, home-grown designs bring a bit of colour to your running. You can read all about their shoes here.
Salming appreciate what parkrun does and what it stands for, bringing people together to enjoy a Saturday morning 5km in the great outdoors. They will be helping to promote parkrun in their social media channels, bringing parkrun events to a wider audience wherever they are. And occasionally you may even get the chance to try on a pair of brand new Salming shoes for your Saturday morning parkrun when the Salming Switcher Tour makes a guest appearance at your local event.
“From a both national and global perspective, teaming up with parkrun adds even more fuel to the quick development of our brand” says Joakim Sandin, International Sales Manager of Salming.

Since 2011, my mother (Who now has 250+ runs) tried to persuade me to run parkrun with her, she knew I enjoyed running. Sadly I was working every Saturday morning, and was therefore unable to participate. However in 2014 I changed jobs and was able to try it out. Obviously I loved it……
