XTERRA and Ironman Champion Lesley Paterson to run On clouds

The 2-time XTERRA World Champion will wear the On shoes exclusively through 2014.

 “We welcome Lesley to the On team that includes an impressive line-up of world champions,” says Olivier Bernhard, a former 3x World Duathlon Champion, 6-time Ironman Champion and Co-Founder of On. “Like the dozens of champions and thousands of runners worldwide who have experienced the unique On running sensation, Lesley will find running in the On more fun.”

Known as “The Scottish Rocket,” this native of Scotland may be small but she packs a mean punch. Not only does she dominate in XTERRA races, but she’s also an accomplished Ironman triathlete, as demonstrated by her victory at Mooseman 70.3 in 2011. Lesley is scheduled to compete in 14 XTERRA races, triathlons and Ironman 70.3 events in the 2013 season. 

“As soon as I put these running shoes on I was blown away,“ says Lesley. “They are responsive and a smooth ride. They transfer power nicely off the ground yet are very light. I’m excited to throw down some great run times with them on and off-road.“
