June 5th marked a special day in the lululemon Run Club calendar – Global Running Day. Our typical Tuesday meetup boasts a group of about 30-50 runners, but for such a special occasion, we had to do a little something extra. So, in partnership with lululemon, we invited our favorite wellness-focused brand partners, expanded the event capacity, and dreamt up a custom cocktail for the day with True Food Kitchen called the “Nosotros Recovery” – Reposado with orange, pineapple, coconut water, and honey.
We even designed limited edition bags and tees to gift those ambitious enough to be amongst the first 80 sign-ups. The custom graphic on our tees were created specially for Running Day, but you can shop the original here. Within an hour of posting the event, we ran out of tickets.
With a turnout of 200+ friends and over a dozen incredible vendors, Global Running Day was nothing short of memorable. Run club vets Dylan Efron, Demi Harman, Joe and Drew Murphy, Kevin Reyes, Ryan Haake and PJ Dwyer led the pack on our signature 3-mile run on Woodchip Trail.
For cool down, we enjoyed bites and beverages from some of the best brands on the West side along with a yoga recovery session with lululemon Ambassador, Sam Wyman. Big thanks to our friends at Normatec, Theragun, Be More Fit, Health-Ade Kombucha, The Solution, Earth Medicine, KOIA, Liquid IV, and Harmless Harvest for the good time. We speak for the whole club when we say the day wouldn’t have been the same without you.
Overall, the day accomplished exactly what the lululemon Run Club was created for – bringing together an active community that embodies the holistic lifestyles of Nosotros and lululemon.
