Just Who Are We?

Just what is this Run Bum stuff all about? It's exactly as it looks. Think about a surf bum, or a snowboarding bum. Now you know what a Run Bum is...someone who just wants to travel the world and run.

Our goal
To promote running around the world by helping people realize running can be and is loads of fun! We want to recruit people to the Run Bum army. We want to show you guys first hand how hard one can push themselves and how great the reward can be. To take you places you’ve never heard of or seen through our videos, pictures, and recounts.

We hope to help create the spark in you that lights the fire that turns you into a Run Bum.

We don’t care if you run one mile or one thousand miles, we’re all runners under the same sun. So be a Run Bum with us!

How do I become a Run Bum?
Repeat after me...”I’m a Run Bum, I run for fun.” There...after admitting that to yourself, it’s’re a Run Bum. To make it really official, sign up for the forum and start posting away. Grab a Run Bum T-shirt and/or technical t-shirt and rock it on your runs!

Where have you guys run?
Hawaii, Oahu, Kauai, Costa Rica, France, Italy, Switzerland, England, Germany, Czech Republic, Samoa, French Polynesia, New Zealand, Australia, Fiji, British Columbia, Alberta, Alaska, St. Lucia, Bahamas, Martinique, St. Martin, St. John USVI, Colorado, Utah, California, Oregon, Washington, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Pennsylvania, Vermont (are you really going to make us list all the places?) and more to come.

So far we’ve got a whole slew of races in crazy places for 2011 but don’t worry we never forget where we came from. A hint or two...the world's highest mountain...back up to Canada for some mountain running? South America? Europe? You’ll just have to wait and find out.

Sean is a big ole run bum. He travels the world running it and bumming it. Chia has been around a bit longer but hasn't done nearly the traveling that Sean did. An interesting mix here and it certainly works. Read more.
