A New Balance pub exclusively for runners – where the only currency accepted was miles run.

Tapping into the growing popularity of the post-run beer culture, The Runaway Pub was launched to engage runners and enable them to participate with the brand in a unique and authentic way. By setting regular challenges and tracking how many miles they had run using the Strava app, we encouraged social sharing to create noise for New Balance within the highly-targeted running community.
