A cool project starts today. In order to promote running (and not just trail running), Sport LAB challenged running community to run in one month 7864 kilometers (not individually, but all together :)), which is the length of land border of Croatia (hence, “run around Croatia”).
A challenge was created on Endomondo that will track how many kilometers have we run. Sport LAB committed to provide prizes through lottery every week and after the end of the challenge. For every circle around Croatia (i.e. every 7864km) additional prize will be given to one lucky runner. There are no limitations about runners and runs, you can be from Croatia or not, run in Croatia or not, it’s just important that you join the challenge and log your kilometers.
A project kick-off is today at 19:00 in front of Sport LAB store in Zagreb (Radnička 40-5) so if you re in Zagreb, join us for a nice run and chat. Additional events and gatherings will be organized during the next 30 days (e.g. Full Moon Run, more info soon…). You can also follow the project and ask for any questions on official Facebook event page.
I am happy I have joined the Sport LAB team that will promote the project and the brands that are offered in the store (most importantly: Inov-8 and Vibram FiveFingers). My personal goal in the project is to promote trail running, meet new people and share my story of travelling and racing, combining those two, meeting foreigner runners and joining running communities (all that :)).
Don’t hesitate. Every kilometer counts. It doesn’t matter if you contribute with 1, 10 or 100 kilometers. Let’s see how many circles around Croatia can we make! 🙂
