What other events have you organised?

We’ve pioneered relay running since 2013. We connected thousands of people in the first non-stop mass participation running relay across America, we’ve crossed continents by trainer-power alone and broken world records. If you want to see what we’re capable of, check out One Run Global, One Run for Boston, The London Relay and Project Awesome as examples.

We also have a geeky side too - using cutting edge research to help organisations to increase participation and diversity in sport and organise sell-out events like The Women's Trad Festival.
