Greeper laces support the Appeal

Over the past few years GREEPER® Laces have shown the Jane Tomlinson Appeal incredible support donating £1 from the sale of every pair of the Special edition 'Chrissie Greepers'.

Back in 2012 Greeper Laces launched a partnership with Appeal patron and four time World Ironman Champion Chrissie Wellington with the introduction of Chrissie's very own branded laces.

The laces carry Chrissie's motto "Live It, Love It" - along with a Chrissie smile!  When asked about the motto Chrissie said "anything is possible if you live and love life to the full!"

GREEPER® Laces, invented by entrepreneur Peter Greedy, are a patented lacing system that enables quick and easy release and fastening of the laces. The laces are made with highest quality 100% polyester laces (exactly the same as those supplied by the shoe manufacturers) and are not elastic. This is important for athletes: Edinburgh Sports Podiatrist Jacqui Baggaley notes "the use of regular non elastic laces ensures optimum shoe support for the feet during exercise and reduces the chance of injury".

Whether you are a runner, triathlete or an Ironman yourself, try out the 'Chrissie's Greeper' laces & support the Appeal in the process.


People visiting the Triathlon Show this weekend at Sandown Park will have the chance to buy 'Chirssies Greeper' laces for just £5 when they purchase a copy of Chrissie's Autobiography. Visit the Alton Sports stand to get your hands on a pair!
