Run Local is a lifestyle. Our roots extend deep into the soil of the running culture with a lifetime in training, competition and producing endurance events. However, this expanded to an ethos and mission of using movement as a vehicle for community improvement. We believe in the power of local. Taking care of yourself, your family and your team. Looking after your neighborhood, your community, and your city. We find value in the pride and prejudice of supporting the pillars in your periphery. You know what it needs and you know your worth. Run Local is about making sure the kids on your block are staying safe and that you’re supporting that mom and pop coffee shop. Both and always. Together Run Local is a fabric of threads combining story and optimism and hard work and celebration.
As a brand, we produce events, apparel, and digital media. Our focus is to support, motivate and learn about local communities. Through running we want to know about you, your toils and your town. And how can we help? Sometimes it’s just knowing and shining a light on that special place you call home.
The Run Local Podcasts are hosted by a team of semi-professionals including Josh Muxen (the voice of Run Local Events), and J.T. Service (the founder of Run Local Events).
Simon Freeman: Co-Founder of Like the Wind Magazine
Simon Freeman is a former pub loving, cigarette smoking London lad that changed his life through the sport of running. While the athlete journey took him to a 2:30'something marathon p.b., the real story is told through the stories he now tells. Simon and his wife Julie are the co-founders of Like the Wind magazine. This publication is running rag like no other. Bespoke art, printed on matte paper, stories of the spirit of running, and never thrown away. Simon joins Josh and J.T. on the Run Local podcast to share his journey, entertains everyone with a recount of an infamous interview with Lance Armstrong, and regales the audience with an overflowing goblet of British humour. That's humour with a U. And U... will love it.
Early Call Time: JT gets put in the Hot seat
This week we'll be airing a special episode of the Run Local podcast. A few of our running industry friends at the Early Call Podcast invited our founder J.T. Service onto their podcast and dove into the history of Soul Focus Sports, Run Local and Silverback Pacific. The hosts try to figure out how J.T. has time to manage three companies, ask him for stories about his days representing professional athletes, and then they blindside him with a surprise guest. That surprise guest tells embarrassing stories about J.T., which admittingly isn't too difficult. We thought it would be fun to mix up the show and we'll be back into original content in the next episode. Check it out it's a pretty good listen.
