What drives us is a belief that running is a natural and tribal form of movement and a profound source of pleasure and joy. Running allows to break from our urban lives and not only help to improve our mental & physical health but also contribute to our overall happiness.
By enabling more people to experience the wonders of being connected with nature, we hope to build greater respect for it and in turn protect it. We believe this is not just a way to enjoy life, but also helps our relationships, support the local economy and the community.
