Why Did We Create Pacers?

We started For the Run with the mission of helping the running community by giving back to causes and individuals who may need it. Shortly after we got started we received messages asking how you could get involved. Many of those messages suggested we open up an ambassador program.

We have thought about this ever since that first message. A lot.

While we think ambassador programs for other businesses makes sense, it doesn't align with our primary mission. Since day one, we set out to be an extension of the running community and we think Pacers is the best way to do that!

Like race pacers, the role of being a Pacer with For the Run is to
help us realize and achieve our goals. In this case, we hope you can take us to new heights so we may pursue larger objectives that without you would we would never be able to accomplish. And while you will be our Pacers, we also plan to support our team and the causes that matter
to you! We have been about #runners4runners since day one, and with this program we don't plan on changing that!
