5 Reasons Why You Should Run in The United Relay of America

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock, you already know we’re deeply involved with The United Relay of America, the world’s first triple-route coast-to-coast running relay.

We got involved for a few reasons:

Brand awareness. We’re a business on a mission to grow, which’ll only happen if people know who we are! This event gives us national reach and is helping us reach more folks like you.

It feels good. Giving back helps us sleep at night and the breadth of charities that stand to benefit from this effort connected with us.

It just makes sense! Most organized runs take place on closed courses, but this one takes participants on roadside courses, during all hours and conditions. For those that can’t run without being plugged in to their phone and music, it’s just not safe to use traditional headphones that block out traffic and warnings. Our open ear concept ensures runners can remain aware of surroundings while they run. It was a no-brainer - we had to get involved!

But enough about us…
This is about why YOU should join us.

Here’s 5 reasons that are sure to convince you:

1. To get in shape.

Go ahead - eat as many Girl Scout Cookies as you want.

2. Because all the cool kids are doing it.

(Like us.) If you want to run with Kim, Caleigh, Chelsea or Mary, let us know in the comments. We’re already signed up to run multiple stages in Seattle, Syracuse and New York City, but if you’d like us to join you in your hometown, give us a shout! 

3. Netflix is down (again).

Nothing better to do.

4. Because... history.

Who doesn’t want to make history!? This is your only chance to be a part of the very first triple-route coast-to-coast running relay. Sign up now to change some lives. DO IT.


5. It's your good deed for the day!

100% of funds raised, from registration fees to personal and corporate donations, will go to the benefiting charities. Your efforts will be an important part of the estimated $1.5 million we intend to support the coalition of charities partnered with the We Are Here Movement and local children’s hospitals across the nation.

Well well well when asked #whyURrunning the answer like most of the awesome things I’ve done in my life is exactly the same, because I love life. Honestly I want to get the most out of the time we have here. I figure that motivating and inspiring others to do the same is the 2nd biggest factor. With two daughters 6 months and 20 months old, the recent transition into fatherhood has been my final kick in the pants to break out the running shoes, short shorts and running playlist to live the life I’ll soon be preaching to my two little angels.
