Race Kred Review/Giveaway


What better way to celebrate my 3 year Runniversary than to have a giveaway?!

Whether it’s a 5k or an ultra-marathon, when you’ve trained hard for a race and completed it, you want to tell people about it! What better way to do that than to wear it on the shoes that got you across the finish line?

Lane from Race-Kred contacted me and offered to send me a 26.2 charm of my own and then graciously offered to give another one away (winner’s choice) to one lucky Slow is the New Fast reader!  I thought the packaging was smart and allowed you to be able to see right away how your charm will look on your shoes. I found it simple to put on and I think the silver color works great with any color shoes.


Cute packaging!

Here are a few frequently asked questions from the Race-Kred site: 

Q. How big is the Race-Kred shoe swag? Will it feel heavy on my shoe?

Answer: Race-Kred is very small. It weighs 5.5 grams (about the same as 2 dimes) and is 20mm wide and 17mm tall. You won’t be able to feel the bead on your shoe. As you can see from this picture, they are small enough to fit multiple Race-Kreds on one shoe.


Q. What is Race-Kred made of?

Answer: Race-Kred is made of 100% Zinc Alloy and it is nickel free. It is finished with antique silver plating.


Q. Can I order custom Race-Kred shoe swag for a specific race?

Answer: Custom beads can be ordered with a specific race logo engraved (space permitting). Minimum order quantity is 250. Bulk pricing discounts are also available starting with quantities of 250. Please contact us at info@race-kred.com for more details.


Q. Do you wholesale Race-Kred?

Answer:  Yes.  Race-Kred is sold in several running, triathlon and wellness stores.  Please contact us for more information if you are interested in carrying Race-Kred in your stores.  Info@race-kred.com.


Q. I don’t see a Race-Kred for my event? (i.e. 3-day walk, 150 Miles, etc)

Answer: Please let us know what other Race-Kred you would like to see available on our site. We are certainly open to adding to our product line. Please contact us at info@race-kred.com.

    If they have a 10k one then I would love that as my goal this year is to do a sub45 10km. If not then the 13.1 to remind me of all the half marathons I have done.

  33. The 13.1 for sure. When I did my first half I was terrified. Now I’m planning on doing 6 this year.

  34. 13.1! it’s a beautiful number!
