Make Trails at the 4th Merrell Adventure Run with the M-Connect Series

The pioneer in adventure trail running, the Merrell Adventure Run is slated on April 27, 2013, 4am at the spectacular Mt. Sinai in Bukawe, San Mateo, Rizal.  Expect another challenging event packed with dirt roads, flowing streams, river crossings, rock scrambling, and uphill & downhill paths.  

Now on its fourth year, the all-terrain Merrell Adventure Run has gained a vast following from trail runners who seek a new adventure and want to push themselves to the limit. The race will have 3 categories: 5k, 10k, and 21k for hardcore trail-runners.

To best prepare for this thrilling and dynamic event, coming in your proper gear is definitely a must, especially the shoes you have on. Being an outside athlete, it’s time to connect to Merrell’s M-Connect series with Its 4 key collections - Barefoot, Bare Access, Mix Master and Proterra.

The M-Connect series takes the benefits of minimal footwear and addresses the needs of the user and demands of the outside activity. These intuitive shoes are designed to enable good ground connection, but are built on different platforms.
Merrell Barefoot gets a major update with heightened ground feel and new upper design for running. The Barefoot Trail Glove 2 is great for races with its secure fit and microfiber and breathable air mesh material.  On the other hand, Bare Access is ideal for running and training with its M Bound cushioning.

For multi-run use, Mix Master is the best given its flexibility and light built. For running, opt for Mix Master Move. It gives the user a closer experience to barefoot stride with its sticky rubber sole grips. There’s also the Mix Master Tuff, a minimalist hiking shoe that allows better ground feel.  It is lightweight and has shock absorption plate to protect the feet. Meanwhile, if you are looking for a durable and waterproof shoe, get Mix Master 2, which is great for multiple adventures.

For those who go for multi-run and multi-hike activities, Proterra has the latest Stratafuse technology for lightweight fit and natural movement.

The M-Connect series perfectly reflects Merrell’s mission of inspiring the outside athlete in everyone through products that allow people to feel their surroundings.
