Would you like to be rewarded every time you go for a run? Become a Running Hero and you will be!

A little bit of appreciation can go a long way. Remember back in your primary school days how proud gold stars would make you feel? Didn’t those gold shiny stickers make you feel on top of the world; like you could achieve anything you set your mind to? You’re so much more likely to push yourself and work harder when you know that all of your efforts will pay off with a gesture or, even better, a prize in the end.  Lucky for you, that’s exactly what Running Heroes is all about!

Running Heroes, an innovative online community, is a startup that was founded in France in 2014 by sports enthusiasts Boris Pourreau and Jean-Charles Touzalin. Every time you go for a run, Running Heroes will track your progress and reward you with points that can go towards prizes and exciting offers. What better motivation to go for a run than some well-earned goodies waiting for you at the finish line!

To get involved, first you register on then, you link your preferred running app or GPS watch to the website. From then on, every time you go for a run, you will automatically earn points that you can then redeem for rewards. Running Heroes has partnered with awesome brands, such as Adidas, Reebok, Uber and Nike, so you can be sure that the rewards you receive will be well worth the run!

Running is a fantastic and simple way to stay fit and healthy. There’s no need for any equipment and you can go running wherever you are in the world. In recent years, running has become increasingly popular as it’s been proven to help with health concerns such as obesity, diabetes and mental health issues. What’s even more amazing about Running Heroes, is that you don’t have to go running on your own. By registering on its website, you’ll become part of an international online community that currently has over 230,000 members in France, the UK and Australia and is still growing every day!

If that doesn’t impress you, wait until you hear the stats. So far, the entire Running Heroes community has run a distance equal to a four-time run around the globe. On average, each member runs around 5.6 miles per session and every runner spends approximately two hours a week out running and improving their fitness. Impressive!
