KARHU IKONI 2.0 "DUNE TRAINING"

This fall, the KARHU Ikoni 2.0 collection features a special edition Dune Training Pack inspired by Arthur Lydiard’s invitation from the Finnish Track & Field Association to coach the national team. While Lydiard’s coaching stint may have been short, it had lasting effects that were later adapted by legendary Finnish coach Kari Sinkkonen.

ARTHUR LYDIARD’S DUNE WORKOUTS

Prior to Lydiard’s arrival, interval training was the cornerstone of Finnish running. When Lydiard was younger, he noticed how tired he felt after running relatively short distances. He began experimenting with his training, which involved daily efforts at a steady pace to increase fitness. Once fit, he built up strength and power by running over sand dunes where the unstable surface forced a focus on proper form.

FINNISH DUNES

KARHU is excited to reimagine the art of dune running with this limited-edition pack. The pack's photoshoot was conducted on Finnish dunes at Yyteri Beach with runner's training for fall marathons. To complete the concept, KARHU has designed a training journal in collaboration with The Pill Outdoor magazine, highlighting memorable quotes from some of Finland's most notable runners. The Dune Training journal is available at selected retailers worldwide.
