The doors were opened to the first ever Solebloc event last weekend and what a day it was!
As well as helping promote and set up the event along with the organisers, @G1runners and anyone else I went along to sell a few pairs and to enjoy the day. The lead up for most people involved got a little stressful although the day was a huge success where everyone had a great time meeting their peers and no one went home empty handed!
As usual the weather forecast prior to the event was looking bleak. Fortunately the sun made a lengthy appearance and everyone got to bust out their good trainers. A huge turn out including people from all over the country meant that there was quite a lot of competition in terms of who’s wearing what.
The event had so much to offer throughout the day including a massive collection of 250+ new balance trainers old and new which even got a mention on Complex!
Due to the success and joy orchestrated from the event I don’t think that will be the last one we see.
