This blog has a lot of purposes… but one of the ultimate reasons why it exists is so I can share information with you.
So I have a secret to share with you…
Something NEW is happening in the running community starting June 1st.
Something HUGE… and ¬†guess what? YOU can be apart of it.
We are runners. We change our shoes on average every 400 miles, some sooner if they are natural barefoot running shoes.¬†What do you do with your old running shoes?¬†Most end up in the trash and then a landfill, where it could take up to 100 years for those shoes to biodegrade.
Well this no longer has to be the case. ¬†Instead you have a better option then throwing out your old running shoes. You now have the amazing opportunity to donate them to Kindrunner.
So let me introduce you…
Kindrunner.com is scheduled to launch in the US marketplace June 1st. (Yep, that is right, you are the first to know!) It is the only place on the web where you can donate your retired running shoes, along with all the shoe packaging materials ¬†– this helps lower the running community’s impact on the environment.
Kindrunner makes it easy, by covering all shipping costs, recycling all shipping materials,¬†repurposing footwear, and donating them to Soles 4 Souls and/or¬†the More Foundation Group.¬†You receive Kindness Cash Rewards for every pair of shoes donated, and¬†your shoes find a new home with someone who desperately needs them.¬†
Kindrunner.com¬†also is your new online informative platform.¬†¬†Along with bettering the environment they want to better you, as a runner. With the¬†focus on expert shoe fitting and product guidance online, they are¬†offering the best performing and highest rated running products, including Newton,¬†Saucony, Brooks, Mizuno, Asics, Innov-8, and ¬†Pearl Izumi. Yes, thats right, they have Newtons!!
A little note from Kindrunner…
“We stretch a single carbon foot print to its maximum potential. We believe that thoughtful and educated runners all over the country will relate to our movement and want to be a Kindrunner.”
If this is you, and you want to be a Kindrunner…
Start by visiting their¬†initial homage, ¬†www.kindrunner.com¬†, and enter the”Win Free Running Shoes for a Year!” contest. ¬†If you and a running partner both register (just enter your email address and confirm it’s yours) you both are signed up to win. If either one of you is selected to win the contest both of you will win free running shoes for a whole year (three pairs each!).”
