We will leave no stone unturned in our quest to find out why runners are at their happiest when they are hurting the most. This journey is a marathon and not a sprint and we intend to ask the experts, quiz the academics and test the elites until we find an answer. But we can’t do it without you, the runners sharing your stories.

What Moves You?

We want to know  whatever it is that gets you out of bed at 5am on an icy morning to hit the pavement or the trail. Whether you’re running from heartbreak or searching for love. Fighting your demons or for a cause, we want to know about it. You never know, we might just pick you to be a part of this exciting project. All stories are reviewed and curated before being posted on line.

Post Your Story

If there’s one thing we’ve learned its that every runner has a story. Share it with us and we’ll share it with the world. WRITE POST

Share Your Selfie

Snap a photo with a placard showing what moves you and we’ll post it to the blog and our social media sites.

Upload Your Video

The most creative 30-second video selfie about why you run might just make it into the film. You never know.
