SGB Outdoor - PT-1000 review

Former SGB Editor takes on marathon challenge

Former SGB editor Jon Bruford is running the 2011 London Marathon in aid of local charity Severn Hospice. Jon, 36, a keen but not particularly good runner, is enthusiastic about the challenge: "I've wanted to run a marathon for some time now, but niggles and work always got in the way. This time though, because I'm running for such a fantastic charity, I'll get to the end by hook or crook."

Jon has been training in UK Gear's new PT-1000 running shoes, and is impressed. He said: "They're a lot lighter than I imagined they would be, and they're very responsive; I walked about nine miles in them before my first run, as UK Gear always say their shoes need a few miles to bed in. From the first run though, I have been very, very impressed with the shoe. Who knows, the PT-1000's might even take me all the way to the finish line!"
