Struggling to stick to a running routine? Perhaps you’re plateauing and need some motivation? Ready to smash that next PB and need a little help? Or maybe you’re just getting started and need to find your tribe? No matter your “why”, we know your “how”; the adidas Runners running club.
What Is adidas Runners?
It’s a free global community of passionate runners of all ages and abilities, united by an ambition to become better athletes through the power of sport, friendship, and commitment.
What began in Berlin has now grown into an international movement. There are now more than 70 adidas Runners communities around the world including in Johannesburg, Cape Town and Durban. What a win!
When Do They Meet?
The adidas Runners communities meet weekly to run the streets of their city and connect with fellow athletes.
Why Should I Join?
adidas Runners is driven by the transformational power of community. It’s completely free to join and in addition to your running goals being supported, you’ll also get access to expert advice on mindset, nutrition, recovery and gear.
Plus, the science supports you joining a running club. Studies have shown that being accountable to another person is a big factor in adhering to your training plan.
Researchers at Kansas State University found that people who exercised with someone they thought was better than them increased their workout intensity by as much as 200%. And thanks to adidas Runners you’ll not only be surrounded by a tribe of people just like you, you’ll also get access to people who’ve been there, done that and can give you all the tips and advice. Why yes, that is Gerda Steyn below.
