adidas Runners is an international community of people from all walks of life who run together, not against one another, with the ultimate goal being self-improvement.

It’s completely free to join the adidas Runners and what’s unique is their holistic approach to running, which is based on five pillars:

MOVEMENT: Move your body in ways that power your body and spark your mind with HIIT and full body workouts.

NUTRITION:  Charge your body and brain with the correct food and hydration for maximum energy

throughout your training.

MINDSET:      Generate positivity, flow and motivation for more focused runs.

RECOVERY:    Recover to enhance the benefits of your hard work, prepare yourself for new

challenges and strengthen your resilience to stress and injuries with yoga sessions.

GEAR:             Find the right running clothing, footwear and accessories to suit your style.

What can you expect?

Each adidas Runners is led by a Captain and supported by Boosters. These experienced runners will make sure everyone in the group is supported out on the road regardless of pace. No one gets left behind.

After successfully completing five adidas Runners events, you’ll receive your very own adidas Runners city t-shirt which proudly features the community you run with. There are also various other rewards to strive for as you progress on your running journey.

Meet the Captains and Boosters from your nearest adidas Runners community:
