Running is both a competition and a type of training for sports that have running or endurance components. As a sport, it is split into events divided by distance and sometimes includes permutations such as the obstacles in steeplechase and hurdles. Running races are contests to determine which of the competitors is able to run a certain distance in the shortest time. Today, competitive running events make up the core of the sport of athletics. Events are usually grouped into several classes, each requiring substantially different athletic strengths and involving different tactics, training methods, and types of competitors.

I have purchased and used Avia running shoes for 25 years and have always been satisfied. They provide the cushion I need and help my stride be straight & level. This pair of shoes is light and very comfortable.

I love hiking. When I saw this shoe, it looked like one which can be wore at Workplace and hikes alike. I bought it in Summer 2011 and the shoe looks in good shape to this date !It has survived wet/dry/cold/super-hot all kind of hikes in Yosemite, tahoe, beaches - sandy or rocky alike, apart from almost a year of wearing it at workplace. It is extremely stable on all surfaces due to good grip in soles. I use it in gym as well since I only do lifting inside the gym. Overall, a good buy.
