Conti Running Series 2016

24h Thunder Run & 12h Lightning Run 2016

We are delighted to add the renowned 24h Thunder Run to our race series as part of our shoes sole partnership with adidas. The 24h Conti Thunder Run will be held on the weekend of 23rd & 24th July 2016 at its regular venue Catton Park, Walton on Trent. Thunder Run joins the 12h Conti Lightning Run which will take place on Sunday 1st May, 2016 in a different field at Catton Park. Testing yourself in the 12h race first gives you a great opportunity to see if you are ready for the 24h race. But with just under three months between them you will still have plenty of time to get ready for the main event.

Both events are off road-relay against the clock. You will find them tough, mentally challenging but they are an experience not to be missed as previous participants will tell you.

Why Continental Tyres?Why Continental?

Since 2010 Continental has provided rubber soles to help adidas improve the grip on its 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 with Continental Compound were sold. Today there are more than 80 different adidas running and trekking shoes for men and women on the shelves.
