Spring Running Extravaganza

“In spring, at the end of the day, you should smell like dirt.”

Margaret Atwood

DEKA is kicking off the first weekend in March (4/5th) with a Spring Running Extravaganza!

If you run with your dog or have thought about giving it a go then our Spring Extravaganza weekend is for you! With harnesses to buy and trial, intro runs to take part in, trail shoes and more, we can help you get going or make your canicross running better.

Training for a spring marathon or half? Visit us during our Spring Extravaganza for a chance to try before you buy on marathon shoes from Saucony, try out the latest GPS watches from TomTom, sort out custom insoles from Superfeet to relieve aches and pains and get advice on fuelling your PB.

We really hope you can come along and help us make this event a success. If you want to know more you can email hello@wearedeka.com call us for a chat on 01373 464889 or follow us on Facebook!

Here’s what’s going to be happening:

K9 Trail Time

Emily from K9 Trail Time will be joining us at DEKA all day on Saturday 4th March. She will be available to advise and fit the perfect canicross harness and line for you and your dog.

Give canicross a try

Would you like to try out a canicross run (running with your dog)? Then why not meet us at Heaven’s Gate car park, borrow harnesses for humans and hounds if needed and give it a go. Wessex Canicross are our local canicross running group and will take you on short trail run through the beautiful Longleat Forest. Just turn up any time on Saturday 4th March between 10:30 and 12:30 and you can give it a go!

Superfeet Custom Moulded Insoles

Do you have foot pain when running? Or maybe you use insoles already? We’ll have the Superfeet Custom Fit insoles available in-store at our event. The insoles are heated and then moulded to your foot using Superfeet’s patented Bio-Vac system. The result is a truly personalised fit to the specific shape of your foot. We will have a variety of types available plus some great deals on our standard Superfeet range.


We’ll have a great selection of the latest shoes from Saucony available all weekend so you can try before you buy, including the NEW Guide 10, Triumph ISO 3 and Omni 15. So whatever your running style, come in, get fitted and take them for a run! A great chance to sort your spring racing shoes.

Get set, go!

Fuel your runs! Get ready for spring races with workshops on fuelling with Torq. Running a marathon or half and thinking about gels? Think they all taste disgusting? Come and join Laura for a 30 minute interactive session on fuelling your training and racing with Torq – we think they taste great. Sessions take place at 2:30pm on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th March in the Frome shop. Plus tasters and samples in store all weekend.

TomTom Watches

Test out a TomTom Runner 3 or Adventurer. Ever fancied a GPS watch to track your activities? We’ll have demo watches for you to take for a run (with a pair of Saucony shoes, so wear your running kit!) and a great range of special deals, inlcuding the Runner 3 starting at just £99.99, available all weekend.
