Learn about being a Pacer!

What is the Pacers Project?

At its core, this project is about support. We don’t call it an ambassadorship because it isn’t solely about you supporting us. For the Run is a company founded on supporting others and we aim to support those who decide to support us.

How do you support Pacers?

Support has many forms. It is encouragement in the midst of rough patches and celebrating those breakthroughs. It is promoting how amazing you are to others by telling your story through social media, our website, or even being a guest on our podcast! It can also be in the form of giving back to a cause that is important to you, or in some cases designing apparel inspired by you and being able to donate a portion of our profits from those items.

Why should I become a member of the Pacers Project?

Signing up to become a Pacer means you support our efforts to support others, give back to important causes, and expand. Because we donate a large portion of our profits, we have to be more creative and calculated with our growth decisions.

What am I obligated to do?

We don't have strict regulations on engagement! Life certainly comes at us in waves and we don’t aim to add friction to yours! When you are able to promote us, tag yourself in our apparel, share why you’re a Pacer, shop with us, or sign up for one of our contributor openings when those come up, we are grateful for you making the effort to do so!

What will contributors do?

We are a small team, which means we spend most of our days playing task whack-a-mole. From time to time we may seek help in product promotion, developing marketing materials to use in upcoming launches, seeking a few voices to help us decide our next moves, or being a part of podcast episodes or live social media events. We wouldn't be surprised if a few other things may pop up along the way!

While we won’t be able to compensate our contributors for these services, we will offer incentives in the form of larger discounts, even earlier access to new items, along with a few other options! These benefits will exist for the duration of your time as a contributor.
