PHOENIX Wings – Introducing our unique loyalty ‘Shoe Bling’
There are some things you just can’t buy; some things have to be earned the hard way with blood, sweat, tears and fun….
What are PHOENIX Wings?
PHOENIX wings are a completely new concept in what we’re calling our ‘shoe bling’. Simply slip your trainer laces through the specially designed holes and adorn your running shoes with their very own ‘bling’.
But, dare we say it – PHOENIX wings are more than just bling – these are not our usual, epic, in-your-face, outrageously awesome medals – these are subtle symbols of your accomplishments. Wear them on your running shoes with pride, knowing that most people won’t even notice them and those that do are the ones that know…..
So how do you earn your PHOENIX Wings?
Just keep on running with us and when you’ve done 10 events (of any distance) simply email us your list – please title your email ‘PHOENIX Wings’ and send to firstname.lastname@example.org and the very next time we see you we’ll give you your ‘Bronze Wings’.
The more events you do the more sets of wings you earn……
……….that we’ve added a recessed 15mm magnet to the back so if you don’t want them on your shoes, they’re also a handy fridge magnet.
So how does it all work then?
Just keep running with us and you’ll earn your wings – these can’t be bought, you need to do the events to get these – no exceptions and no shortcuts I’m afraid.
What counts as an event?
It’s pretty straight forward – if you appear in the results then you completed an event with us.
Yes, it does need to be PHOENIX event.
Wings are earned on event volume, I.E the number of PHOENIX events you complete – not the mileage or distance you do at each event. If you run 5km in one of our timed events and then complete 40km in another, these each count as one event.
What if I DNF an event?
If you DNF it doesn’t count.
For example -If you are running one of our marathon distance only events and you don’t finish the whole distance then this wont’ count.
It’s pretty tough to DNF one of our timed events – although it is possible if you drop out without completing the first lap and under this circumstance that event wouldn’t count.
And how do I get them when I’ve done the running bit?
All you need to do is email us a list of your PHOENIX events when you have completed the required number – title your email ‘PHOENIX Wings’ – send to email@example.com
Just the event title and date will do – here’s an example of what to send us.

You can do this in advance if you know when your 10th / 25th / 50th or 100th PHOENIX event will be and then we can give you your wings at the end of that event. Or simply wait till after you’ve done the event and then will give you your wings next time we see you.
Can I include historical PHOENIX events, even ones I did a while ago?
Yes, all PHOENIX events count.
Why do I need to submit a list via email – can’t I just have them – please?
This is important stuff – we want to record it for all posterity and for all to see. We want to know who has earned their wings and which ones and when. We’ll keep a master list which you can add to as you move through the ranks.
