This Saturday, @hokaoneone athletes have their eye on breaking the world record in the 100K 🏆, in the new Carbon X 2! You can follow along with the PROJECT CARBON X 2 tomorrow morning AND have a chance to win your OWN PAIR of these snazzy new racers! 👟 In stories, there is a QR code and link to a Guess The Pace entry form where you submit your estimate for @walmsleyruns’ average pace for the event. ❓ 🤔
🚨The challenge begins at 7:00 AM MST (5:00 AM AKST) January 23. You can watch the live stream on Hoka’s Facebook page. SRS will be streaming a re-run as well, for those of you not getting up 5 hours before the 🌞. At the first Project Carbon X in 2019, HOKA athletes attempted the 100K world record, with some attempting to break 6 hours - current record is 6:09:14 (men's) and 6:33:11 (women's). While unable to get the 100K record, Jim Walmsley set a new 50-mile world best of 4 hours, 50 minutes and 8 seconds. #timetofly

Did you set any run goals this year? While the most important part is just getting out there, here’s a few key items that can help you stay comfortable and maintain motivation 💪
❄️ Come in for a shoe fitting to find your perfect fit, and our employees can recommend some warm and waterproof layers that will help you get out all winter
🎉A basic gps watch is great for watching your progress and can sync to @strava so your family and friends can cheer you on
🧊 Add some traction with slip-on studs to go with your everyday run shoe and stay on your feet!
What does a shoe fitting entail and what can it do for you? 🤔 Our shoe fitting process is a personalized consultation focused on finding the right match specific to your needs, gait, and comfort. This can be used to find your first ever running or walking shoe, or to discover something new you want to try 👟
Come by for a personalized fitting with our experts who will examine your feet and running style to find the perfect fit!
These boots were made for walking, right on out of here with you! 👢❄️ 🛍 You can shop online as well through the Skinny Raven website!
Step into the new year in style with winter favorites like @karitraa, @vuoriclothing, and @indygena! ✨
5 tips for helping you have a successful running year! ⬇️
1. Increase running volume (miles or minutes) by approximately 10% from one week to the next.
2. Write down your workouts to see your progression and progress in 1, 2, 3 months.
3. Start with run/walks and work to increase the running portion and decrease walking duration over several weeks.
4. Find what motivates YOU! A virtual race/challenge, hiring a coach, a running friend, or the mental clarity it provides.
5. Get properly fitted for running shoes, so that your feet are comfortable and you don’t put yourself at risk for injury.

In a year like no other, we found that community and outdoor activity can be the best support system 💗 Some of our Ravens reflected back on how they made the most of 2020 and kept their spirits high! What helped you enjoy this year?
2020 was a bit more burly than anticipated. Lots of pivots. Lots of new ways of trying to do the same thing. Amidst it all, some really great reminders of what makes the Alaskan community so great. From SRS, thank you. Happy New Year Alaska!
It’s that time of the year when we start thinking about our goals/resolutions for the new year! ✨ Whether you want to become a better runner, get faster, run a PR, or challenge yourself to a new distance, our Raven Run Club coaches can help you get there. 💪🏽 Currently we offer one-on-one coaching for runners of all abilities, and we hope to be able to resume our in-person training in the near future. 🤗 Click the link in the bio for more information and to sign up for the @ravenrunclub ⬆️
