Think you can keep up with Olympic silver medalist and Austin runner Leo Manzano?

Manzano, who is sponsored by Hoka OneOne, maker of those crazy-looking thick-soled running shoes, will lead a social run starting from Texas Running Company Austin, 1011 West Fifth Street, at 6:30 p.m. Thursday. Hoka OneOne will have demo footwear on hand for those who want to try it themselves.

Hoka OneOne is known for its thick-soled running shoes.

Parking is free in the garage. Show up early; the run will depart promptly. More details here.


Hoka OneOne is also hosting the 2014 Hoka One One 2-Mile High School Postal Nationals – South from 4-7 p.m. Tuesday at Nelson Field, 7400 Berkman Drive near Reagan High School.

Top local high school club teams will compete in the 2-mile distance, record the cumulative time of their top five runners, and have the opportunity to compare it against the nation.

Race day registration is $15 per individual or $75 per team. For more information go here.
