In 2015, Run Mindful was created as an avenue to share our values of mindfulness, running and healthy living. As we have connected with runners from around the world during the Run Mindful retreats, we’ve seen how a strong voice in a community can influence how people think about mindfulness. As the Run Mindful team cannot visit every city to speak about our journey to mindfulness, we’ve decided to identify runners who embody the mindful virtues we value and empower them to be the voice of mindfulness within their community.
Run Mindful started as a passion project. We believe in mindfulness as key to healthy living and want this message to reach as vast an audience as possible. Thus, it is with great excitement that we are launching the Run Mindful Ambassador program. The Ambassador program will help further connections between our running communities and highlight the amazing people who are already spreading these positive messages.
Please Note: The 2019 Run Mindful Ambassadors have been selected. Feel free to apply online here for the 2020 Run Mindful Ambassador program and we will get in touch with you at the end of this year as we begin the 2020 ambassador program application process.
