PROJECT CARBON X2

23 January 2021

WATCH OUR RECAP

Congratulations to all the athletes who participated in Project Carbon X 2.

ABOUT PROJECT CARBON X

At the first Project Carbon X in 2019, HOKA athletes attempted to run 100K (62 miles) in under six hours – far faster than the existing world record. Along the way, Jim Walmsley set a new 50-mile word best of 4 hours, 50 minutes and 8 seconds. Set the bar to impossible, they said; you never know how high you’ll get when you reach for it.
 
On 23 Jan, a new bar will be set for Project Carbon X 2, when HOKA athletes will again take on the 100K world record wearing this new shoe. The event will have a new look this year, as the world continues to adapt to COVID-19, but you can still join us to watch the event live as athletes across an ocean celebrate movement and compete against each other, the clock, and themselves.
