If you’re not familiar with the Challenges section of the Strava sports tracking app, it’s a great place to find some targets to shoot for in your running or cycling. Most of these challenges involve simply hitting a certain distance either in one go or over a week or a month, with the reward of a digital badge and a sense of achievement. That’s nice enough, but sometimes there are greater prizes on offer.
This is one of those times. In fact, we’d go as far as to say this is the best prize we’ve ever seen on a Strava challenge. If you log your fastest 5K of 2020 between 29th June and 19th July you will be in with a chance of winning Saucony’s new Endorphin collection of running shoes.
The star turn in the trio of shoes is the Endorphin Pro, which we rate as one of the very best racing shoes in the world, right up there with Nike’s Alphafly. Along with the Pro, you will win the Endorphin Speed, which is designed to be used for your fast training, but is also set to be a pretty great racing shoe in its own right. Finally, the Endorphin Shift will be yours too, which is a comfortable shoe best used for your easy runs.
In short, if you’re lucky enough to win the Endorphin line, you’ll own some of the very best shoes available for all your training and racing.

Assuming your interest is piqued, here’s what you need to do to be in with a chance to win. First, join the challenge on Strava (opens in new tab). Second, run a quick 5K between 29th June and 19th July. Your quickest of the year, at least as logged on Strava. We’re not sure how that’s going to be checked, but get out and do it. We believe in you.
Once you’ve run your 5K you’ll be sent a link by Strava to register for the prize draw. Then sit back and cross your fingers.
If you can’t wait for the results of the draw, the Endorphin Speed and Shift are set to be available from 1st July, costing £155 and £130 respectively. The Endorphin Pro (£190) has already had a limited release and sold out in next to no time, so if it’s also available on the 1st July move fast to avoid disappointment.
