Swap your trains for trainers this Friday (26 April) for the first global Run To Work Day. If you’re running to work in VIVOBAREFOOT shoes make sure you share you stories, photos and videos with us by posting on our Facebook Wall or tweeting us. You can run all or part of their daily commute, donating the money you would otherwise spend on travel and/or parking.
“Run To Work Day is not just an opportunity for runners around the world to ‘run for good’ it is also a chance for employers to encourage colleagues to create a healthy and active workplace. Further, we anticipate that many firms will agree to match-fund their employees’ charitable donations.” – Run to Work Day Organisers.
Here at VIVOBAREFOOT we’re all about education and passionate about teaching people how to run correctly and naturally. If you don’t run in VIVOBAREFOOT shoes already then have a read through our step-by-step guide to barefoot training. If you’re already got a lot of barefoot miles under your belt and are looking for a pair of running shoes? We have a wide range of running shoes – even if your office is on top of a mountain!
“Unlike other running events there is no fixed or minimum distance to cover. You can pick your own route, distance and time of day plus decide if you want to run solo or with a colleague. If you have a long work commute perhaps you could plan to run just part of your travel distance by committing to get off the bus, train or underground a stop or two earlier than usual.”
The charity of choice for the day is Right To Play – an international charity which uses the power of play to educate and empower children facing adversity.
