Travel Portland and Delta Air Lines have come on board as official partners of adidas City Runs – 1 Hour, organisers CSM Active have announced.
Travel Portland and Delta Air Lines join adidas, Continental, Grenade, Vita Coco and Chipotle, among others, as official partners of London’s most innovative running event following a very successful first edition of the closed-road running event in 2018.
The creative capital of Oregon is teaming up with adidas City Runs to give UK athletes and fitness fanatics alike a taste of Portland’s great outdoors during the ‘one city, one hour’ race.
Portland, also known as the city among the trees, is bringing an immersive pop-up to the City Runs event village on Sunday April 7th to celebrate the return of Delta Air Lines’ daily non-stop flight from London Heathrow to Portland International.
What is the one-hour challenge? To run as far as you can in 60 minutes on a route that passes some of London’s iconic landmarks, such as St Pauls Cathedral, and test your fitness level as a measure of distance over time.
Stop by the event village to find out more about Portland’s running scene and what the great city has to offer beyond adventure, exploration and a multitude of outdoor activities, all surrounded by spectacular natural beauty.
Visitors will also be able to relax and rejuvenate in the Portland-inspired hub with opportunities to talk, taste and learn more about the city; with a sampling of Portland-brewed Kombucha and the opportunity to see the city through the lenses of a Portland local with VR headsets.
