currexSole Athlete Alice Hector Wins Her First Ironman 70.3 Title


The unbeaten ultra runner gets the win in Germany to secure a spot in Kona

Ruegen, Germany (September 27, 2016)--currexSole athlete Alice Hector took her first Ironman 70.3 title this month in Reugen, Germany. Alice won the race leading from the front to secure the win by over 6 minutes and secured a position on the start line at the Kona Ironman World Championships this October. A former undefeated ultra marathoner, Alice took to triathlon in 2013. The win in Germany comes after a difficult 2015 season where she faced a big DNF and questioning her place in the sport. Alice’s worlds after this victory were a well deserved, “Finally!”

To stay healthy and perform at her best Alice relies on currexSole, Europe’s leading insole brand, to enhance the comfort of her cycling (BIKEPRO) and running (RUNPRO) shoes. Post-race she shared, “This was my first Ironman 70.3 win on Sunday and it could not have been done without the support of currexSole.”

Look for Alice to compete for an Ironman World Championships podium spot in Kona on October 8th. Lutz Klein, currexSole Americas CEO and MD is pleased with the form of the currexSole athletes heading towards the World Championships, “Alice joins our incredibly strong currexSole racing team in Kona which includes fellow Ironman champions Caroline Steffen and Nils Frommhold. We are pleased to have three exceptional currexSole athletes compete for top spots in the Ironman World Championships in Kona next month.”
