Runnovation is really excited to shine a spotlight on an awesome organisation called Heart & Soles Running. Heart & Soles Running is comprised of Tara, the Director and 10 ambassadors which are located around Australia.
Heart & Soles Running is an amazing organisation because not only does it get people out walking or running through their virtual events, but it also donates thousands of dollars to Australian charities. Last year alone, Heart & Soles Running donated $20,000 to 2 families and 6 charities in need. What a wonderful way to make a positive impact on the Australian community!
For those of you who are unfamiliar with the concept of virtual running events, they are events with no specific geographical location or start time for completion. Therefore, participants all over Australia can participate at a time that works in with their lifestyle and at a place that is convenient for them.
Heart & Soles Running virtual events are designed to be inclusive - there is no requirement to exclusively run an event and there are a variety of distances offered. This means that individuals of all fitness levels can challenge themselves to an enjoyable event experience. Heart & Soles Running usually set up Facebook groups for particular events where other individuals participating in challenges chat and provide encouragement to one another - it has a lovely little community feel.
We at Runnovation have participated in many of Heart & Soles Running's virtual running events and it is very easy to get involved. All you have to do is complete the challenge while recording it on some kind of fitness tracker, shoot Tara an email with a picture of the completed challenge and then wait for some awesome event bling in the mail. The next Heart & Soles Running challenge the Runnovation crew are looking forward to participating in is a team 160km 'Ultra Boost' event in August which will raise money for research into Type 1 Diabetes.
Heart & Soles Running also have a membership program which offers a range of member benefits with various vendors. Runnovation is proud to be a part of this program.
We have included some photographs of the beautiful medallions Heart & Soles Running offer for completion of their virtual challenges. These medallions are showcased on our Runnovation Medallion Stand which can be found in our online shop.
