Only two days after its launch, RunnerSquare is hitting the ground running due to its sponsorship of a race organized by Hewlett Packard (HP) which took place on Oct. 23.
On a warm and sunny day in the city of Barcelona, HP and RunnerSquare united their strengths to celebrate a very special day.
For the North American multinational corporation, today was the ninth annual celebration of their solidarity event, a race called GaS, which took place within Charity Week. HP also celebrated its 75th anniversary. At the same time, for RunnerSquare, today represented the starting point of a social network that will spark much conversation.
RunnerSquare gifted every participating runner with a hat and a flyer introducing itself as a social network created by runners and for runners.
The race, which consisted of 7.5 kilometers and started at 1 p.m., attracted more than 600 participants, a record breaking number.
Many stopped by since 11:30 a.m. to pick up their race shirts and the special gift of the race, a RunnerSquare technical runner’s hat.
The winner of the race completed the course in just a little over 28 minutes, an impressing time considering the demanding profile of the terrain.
Outside of the race course, there were countless curious people who asked about the new RunnerSquare application and showed real excitement and interest after discovering some of its unique and distinguishing features such as Runners Around and Travel Running.
We encourage you to check out our application and, more than anything, enjoy running!
