All About Us
Founder of Runners who Rock Kayleigh says:
"I’ve always struggled with my weight and the motivation to exercise. A couple of years ago I stumbled across virtual racing and it instantly appealed to me. I found myself in the gym at weekends, and even on Boxing Day just to complete the target miles/km for that month to receive my medal! It was a huge part in keeping me motivated and I have always recommended them to people.
I started Runners who Rock because I found that all the medals were related to films, books or whatever was in fashion at the time. There was nothing for music and for me, that’s a huge part of my everyday life – I listen to music at work, in the car and when I exercise.
Rock music inspires me whatever mood I am in and I wanted to make medals to reflect that. All our medals will be inspired by a band or a famous song – artists like AC/DC, Fleetwood Mac, Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi.
I really hope that I can build a community, and introduce people to new rock songs they haven’t heard with our playlists – most of the bands I like I either grew up with or through a song I liked at a festival."
Runners who Rock offers medals for people who run, swim, cycle & walk and who also love great rock music. All our medals are inspired by rock songs with playlists for each month.
Medals are completed in real time distances then submitted online for a virtual racing experience.
As our community grows, we will start a leaderboard for each medal - watch this space!
