Get Ireland Running – There’s a run in #allofus – Campaign Introduction

Get Ireland Running is a national campaign that aims to increase awareness and encourage widespread participation in running for health, wellbeing and fitness. Athletics Ireland in coordination with Intersport Elverys and Irish Runner Magazine will be offering up free tips and advice on transforming your life by being physically active. All three partners are enthusiastic about inspiring and helping more people to enjoy the physical and emotional wellbeing benefits of running, and share the belief that there is a run in all of us.

Exercise helps with not only your physical health but also your mental health, and the simplicity and accessibly of running makes it the perfect form of exercise to be enjoyed throughout life. And don’t worry if you’re just starting out, over 300,000 people in Ireland run on a regular basis already so won’t have to go it alone – Through 360 Athletics Clubs, Nationwide Fit4Life Groups, and 660 affiliated schools, Athletics Ireland continues to support people from the ages of 8 to 80 staying active, fit and healthy.

The hardest part is making that first step but there are number of ways to get started, the most common of which is to reach out to your local athletics club, each of which cater for a range of ages and abilities. You can find a full list of the Athletics Clubs throughout Ireland here.

At Intersport Elverys we are a destination for all things running covering everything from footwear, technical clothing and accessories to nutrition, supports and tech.  On top of our partnership with Athletics Ireland we have been working closely with Brooks and Asics, two of the most well recognized brands in the running community right now.

Brooks as a running brand believe their purpose is to inspire everyone to run and be active, they believe a run can flat out change a day, a life, the world. Asics was founded on the belief that the way to create a healthy and happy lifestyle is to promote total health and fitness. These are key messages that we strive to get across to runners on a daily basis in store and online.

Our goal is to bring this campaign to life with the help of Athletics Ireland, Brooks and Asics through informative content and tips as well as providing runners with the right running gear to suit every need. We have over 50 stores across Ireland with excellent running advisers working in each of them, all with the same belief that the runner always comes first. This is something that our partners and the brands that we are working with on Get Ireland Running all have in common.

At Intersport Elverys we know that every runner is different and getting the right footwear is an important process for any runner. We provide unique techniques along with the latest technologies in store to make sure every running shoe meets your needs. Our team will take you through a series of steps to figure out your foot type with the first step always being getting to know you as a runner. The beauty of running is it starts right outside your front door and Get Ireland Running is a celebration of that simple fact.

If you aren’t ready to get involved in club life just yet, then our Get Ireland Running Blog will provide the perfect resource to get you up and running!

We look forward to supporting you on the journey.
