Last week, after plenty of Facebook fan anticipation, Saucony revealed the details of their Find Your Strong Project. Inspired by the idea that we all get stronger when we run and share what motivates us, Saucony is encouraging people to share photos and videos that capture their “strong.” Community votes determine the best submissions, and winners will receive Saucony footwear.
In the first part of the project, Saucony calls on fans to submit close-ups of their “strong face” either before, during, or after a workout. Saucony hopes that the project will provide inspiration or a challenge for runners everywhere. View some of the early entries here.
Perhaps no event requires runners to find their strong more than The Boston Marathon. Saucony invites you to kick off the marathon this weekend with an evening of running inspiration. An all-star panel of athletes including Bill Rodgers, Mark Herzlich, and Karen Smyers will share stories of finding their strong against seemingly insurmountable odds. Are you going to be in town for the race? If so, the event takes place at The Boston Center for the Arts on Friday, April 13th at 6:30pm. Registration closes Thursday, April 12th.
