Description

Join the We Run Happy Summer Running Virtual Series 2020 and make a positive impact by running or walking while supporting your favorite cause during this difficult time.  

We want you to keep healthy, safe and moving during summer and we have designed the coolest technical shirt as a reward for all your efforts! We wanted to reward you with more than a medal, something that you can wear during your runs or walks, something useful you can use again and again, and save the space in your medal hanger for when live run events come back again, something to look forward to! We are also runners so we know the feeling!

We have created different challenges to help you push your limits! Choose the goal that will make you feel challenged and inspired!

During your runs or walks find those small moments and things that you are grateful for. Practicing gratitude invites joy into our lives.
