The Ironman® Run Trainer™: Simple and Effective

Timex® Ironman® Run Trainer™ was designed for runners who want to keep things simple and effective. Forget repetitive loops, complicated mapping and over-planning. Part of the beauty of distance running is that you can break free of the grind. And Timex understands that the most important technology – the only machine you really want to worry about – is you. Your legs, your lungs, your determination.

The Ironman Run Trainer was designed with this simple but essential functionality in mind.

With a large, easy-to-read, customizable display, you can see exactly what you want during a workout. Plus the 8-hour battery life and water resistance give you the reliability you need from a training tool. Check it out at the Pfizer Health and Fitness Expo at Tamarack Homes Ottawa Race Weekend, or to pick one up for training ahead of time, click here.

Look good, feel good, run good.

That’s why Tamarack Homes Ottawa Race Weekend has you covered – literally. We’re offering personalized technical shirts that can be worn in place of the normal paper bib. Not only do these beauties wick moisture and prevent chafing, they’re built to last and make excellent race weekend souvenirs. To order your Run Ottawa technical shirt, click here.
