This year, we celebrate the ten years of the Saucony Kinvara. This story wouldn’t be complete without Saucony Triathlete, Linsey Corbin and the many other athletes and their desire for something different and new. With their insight and inspiration, the Saucony product team worked to develop a lightweight shoe that packed a heavyweight punch.
This story begins in 2009. Linsey was preparing for her biggest race of the year. She was handed the a prototype for the new running shoe and took it out on a short part of the course for a test run. She knew at that moment that she had the trust and confidence in these new shoes to wear them four days later at the Ironman World Championships. Needless to say, the new Kinvara did not disappoint. Linsey finished on the podium in the top ten in the Ironman World Championships and the rest is history.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of this iconic shoe, the Saucony team invited Linsey along with 5 other Kinvara advocates to the namesake of this iconic shoe. Watch as they start in the coastal town of Kinvara and end at the famed Cliffs of Moher in Ireland for the test of a lifetime.
Follow along as Linsey and the Saucony team travel back to Kinvara, Ireland to take the 10th edition of this iconic shoe for the test of a lifetime.
