Now present in 29 cities in across North America and Europe (Iceland and Serbia), the movement is using a simple sense of accountability (verbal) to motivate and encourage people of all ages, shapes, sizes and fitness levels to get out of their beds and get moving. Our members vary from Olympic medalists, professional athletes, marathoners, triathletes, current and former collegiate athletes all the way to complete fitness rookies and recent couch potatoes just looking to kick start their healthy life choices.

Simple… Just show up!

Along the way many friends are made and life lessons are learned. They hope to bring this enthusiasm to running to the mini-marathon course.
