Wreak havoc on the competition 

There are three things that make the Saucony Havoc XC 3 a force to be reckoned with in the race—traction, lightness, and snappiness.

Saucony Havok XC 3 Tongue

With the shoe's arrow-shaped outsole design, it bites its way through any terrain. Thanks to its flexible spike plate, the shoe creates a spring-like effect that pushes the runner forward.

Saucony Havok XC 3 Insole

All these features are loaded in an extremely light package. This makes the Havoc XC 3 a full-fledged speedster.

I race distances between 800 meters and 10K whether it be on the track, the roads, or on cross country courses. My typical training consists of easy days, long days, workouts (fartleks, tempos, interval training, etc.). My typical training paces range from 7’30 a mile on easy days to sub-5 minutes a mile on fast interval days, and with many paces in between. I run anywhere from 40-60 miles a week. My personal bests are 2:00 for 800m, 4:30 for 1600m, 9:50 for 3200m, 15:57 for 5K, and 34:10 for 10K.
