New Balance have opened the doors to its first ever Pub, ‘The Runaway’, where the currency used is miles run and logged on Strava.

New Balance and Strava have teamed up to launch four challenges, focused around marathon training milestones for runners taking on a Spring marathon. When runners join the Strava challenge, they’ll receive a Runaway Card, which they can add to the wallet on their phone. The card will automatically fill up with the miles they’ve run, and can be used to exchange miles for pints in the pub. Amazing.

The Runaway is located on Charing Cross road in London, and is part of New Balance Everybody’s Race campaign, supporting marathon runners through their training.

Upstairs at The Runaway, you’ll find a fully stocked bar and pub setting, yet if you want to also use this as a strength training session, downstairs, runners will find a gym and weights area to stretch and work out.
