Welcome aboard to our latest Run Forrest sponors…Hoka One One Shoes and Hammer Nutrition.

Hoka One One

Hoka One One is the brainchild of two gravity sports enthusiasts, Jean-Luc Diard and Nicolas Mermoud. Both men have been adventuring for as long as they can remember, and their trail running experiences have taken them across the globe. Both Jean-Luc and Nicolas are committed to the values of freedom and enjoyment and feel that this is integral to the running experience whether running on the trail or in the city. With this in mind, they started to look at the variables that affected the performance of different types of runners.

Because fatigue, impact and muscle strain were challenges that all runners deal with every day, a shoe was designed to help to alleviate these problems — so that freedom and enjoyment could be guaranteed every time you go running! The word Hoka One One is derived from the ancient Maori language and roughly translates to “now it is time to fly”. That’s just how it feels to run in a pair of Hoka One One shoes. With each and every step your foot takes flight.

Today, runners from around the world are having fun and benefiting from Hoka One One running shoes. They are worn by athletes running all distances from 5Ks to half-marathons as well as ultra distances from 50 mile, 100 mile and even 2000+ miles.

Hammer Nutrition

David Williams was introduced to the Hammer Nutrition range in late 2004 and instantly recognised the success formula for athletes and the whole philosophy behind the range of products.

“I was the original distributor for PowerBar in Australia from 1993 until 2003. Having developed the PowerBar business in Australia to be the best outside the USA. So with the business experience gained we started “Hammer Nutrition Australia”

As Sports Nutrition consumers in Australia are aware, there is untold amount of products on the shop floor! Walk into any shop and you will be confronted with up to 15 different products.

Being fully aware of the market and its short comings, I adopted the USA philosophy and further built on this to offer the consumer a totally different approach to Sports Nutrition in Australia.

Australian consumers have never been fully educated on how and what to consume during Endurance events. Sure, there is lots of information floating around, how good it is, is anyone’s guess.
