We are very proud to be sponsored by below companies and brands, that all contribute to making our tours as enjoyable and fun as possible, by providing world class footwear, running clothes, energy and hydration packs.
The single most important thing for us at Running Copenhagen is to stay injury free. We run lots and lots of kilometers and if we get injured, its game over for a while in terms of our small sightrunning business. Needless to say our footwear is of utmost importance and an area we do not compromise in any aspect. The shoes that we wear year round and that keep us injury free are Altra running shoes. These are zero drop shoes and with a wide toe box, so that we can run as naturally as possible but still with good cushioning. We run in all their shoes ranging from the trail shoe Lone Peak in the winter to the One2 and Provision during the other seasons.
Lena has written a blogpost about our Altra sponsorship and why we are so extremely happy with it. It is not only about the shoes it is also about having the pleasure to work with Niels Kim. Read the blog post about our Altra Running sponsorship here
Newline is one of Denmark’s leading manufacturer of running clothes, and we have the pleasure of wearing clothes from the Imotion, Iconic and Base range. In Copenhagen we get all four seasons, which means that depending on time of year, we need clothes that keep us cool in the summer as well as keeping us warm in the very cold Danish winters. The Newline range does just that and the Newline orange t-shirts have quickly become our trademark in the city landscape, ensuring that the guides are visible both to the runners and the traffic.
Newline was established in 1981 by Helge Petersen, who at the time was an elite soldier in the Danish army. He decided to make functional and technically superior sportswear for all seasons, and Newline has since then grown to become one of Denmark’s leading running clothes manufacturer. We are very proud to be wearing the Newline running clothes and the Imotion range continues to impress us.
Running Copenhagen is also sponsored by Camelbak, which provides us with the latest hydration packs and running rucksacks. With Camelbak as a partner, it means that we can comfortably carry supplies, camera, phone and our guests’ keys, cameras etc, while of course also remaining hydrated during our runs. Having to cover many kilometers in Copenhagen city while also doing a significant amount of speaking, makes liquid a must, and with Camelbak we are able to take in liquid without interrupting our tours or carrying water bottles with us.
32GI provides energy products to Running Copenhagen. The days where we run several tours a day or we are guiding our 15+ tours, are the days where we look to 32GI to keep us going. One thing is keeping running for 1-3 hours, the other thing is being able to mentally alert to provide an unforgettable running experience for our guests (every time) and also to be able to guide guests safely through the Copenhagen traffic. 32GI is just down our alley as their products do not provide a huge sugar kick but instead they provide a slow release of energy which lasts longer and prevents us from experiencing the sugar lows. Lena personally eats a low carb diet to ensure both the physical and mental endurance for the many tours and 32GI superbly compliments this diet.
