As mentioned in our previous post, our very first virtual run, the Pi Day 5K, was a big success! Before the event, we had a guess that our growing running community and other runners around the country would be jazzed up about three things:
The opportunity to run as part of a uniquely-connected online community
Being part of a fun-themed event with an impactful cause
Receiving awesome, exclusive merchandise mailed to their door!
Over 750 runners later, it was clearly true — the Pi Day 5K was a sweet, mathematical hit. Over the weekend of 3/12 to 3/15, runners across all but 5 states (as well as 3 Canadian provinces) submitted hundreds of photos on Instagram, finishing times for their well-earned miles, and received coveted Pi Day 5K swag and prizes.
We headed over to the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Seattle Expo today at CenturyLink Event Center and had a blast! As you’d expect, there were tons of great running-related brands in the house. We captured a lot of the action in our photo album from the event.
The star brand of the day: Brooks Running, which featured its traveling circus-themed “The Brooks Run Happy Cavalcade of Curiosities” and wide selection of gear branded specially for Rock ‘n’ Roll Seattle — shirts, socks, headbands… you name it and they had it.
