Last Sunday, Odense hosted a Color Run. You’ve probably heard of them (or even attended one), but if not, a Color Run is basically a fun 5k run where you start off wearing white, and get blasted with colorful cornstarch powder every time you run through a color station. We had our own run to go to that day in Copenhagen, so we were feeling a little blue that we couldn’t make it. Luckily, a few of our friends were able to go, so they captured some beautiful shots and shared their awesome experience with us! Read more

There was an idea floating around the office for some time now about getting together to go for a run with our community, to take social fitness even further. Sure, we go out running all the time with our colleagues and friends, but never with our users. You might be thinking “A running event? Those happen all the time, so what’s the big deal?” But for us, this one was special because we’ve always wanted an opportunity to meet the people that matter most to us: our users!
We finally got our chance by hosting our first-ever “EndoMeet” event this past Sunday, and we are happy to say that, despite a rainy forecast that had us worried, it was a success! We went for a great run, enjoyed sunny Copenhagen skies, and got to meet many of our fabulous local users. We set up our meeting point next to the gorgeous Lake Pavilion (Søpavillonen), split up into our pace groups and got ready to start at 3pm. Our special guest, Henrik Them joined us for the full 6.3k run around the Søerne (the Lakes).
He ran on the 4:30 pace group along with a few of the other intrepid runners. Henrik is one of Denmark’s fastest athletes, so it was a tall order to keep up with him! We managed to catch up with the group to snap a quick pic:
We also had a 5:00 pace group, a 6:00/5k group, and a walking group too:
Two of our lucky users won their own official Endomondo t-shirts, and a few participants won Premium subscriptions!
All in all, it was a perfect way to spend our Sunday, and we can’t wait for the next one! Thank you to all of you who joined us!
