This Monday: the Salomon XR Crossmax Tour visits Rock/Creek

Have you tried the Salomon XR Crossmax yet? Well, if you haven’t, Salomon is coming to your town to make sure you have the chance. I’ve been running in mine for a couple of months, and this shoe definitely delivers lightweight, mixed-surface performance without feeling too minimal or flimsy.

Salomon will arrive at 11:30 AM and be here all afternoon on Monday, July 18, at our 2 North Shore location with a “mobile showroom,” clinics and giveaways. Afterward, we’ll head over to Stringer’s Ridge for a 5:30 PM trail run that includes some sections of old road so you can check out how seamlessly the XR Crossmax Neutral transitions between the two surfaces.

The Salomon XR Crossmax is a “high-mileage training shoe” meant for trail runners who spend some time on pavement now and again, on the way to a trailhead or between trails. This shoe won the Runner’s World “best debut” award for trail runners this spring. We’ve had them at Rock/Creek for some time now, but this will be a great chance to learn more and try out the shoes.

We’re not sure just what the giveaways are — Salomon is playing this one close to the vest — but some participants will be taking goodies home with them…

…and that’s pretty much all we know. See you Monday!
