Don’t miss On’s free four-day celebration of the London Marathon between 30 September – 3 October
We’re all gearing up for one of the greatest running events in the world, the London Marathon! Whether you’re braving the run yourself, on the sidelines cheering or just soaking up the atmosphere it brings to our city – there’s something for everyone to enjoy. And how better to celebrate than with sportswear brand On’s free marathon-inspired event? Point 2 is an unmissable experience inspired by the mind-blowing physiological stages that hit your mind and body in the last 0.2 miles of a marathon!
Head to Protein Studios on marathon weekend to discover a celebration of the marathon mindset, running culture and artistic creativity. Explore an experimental art installation by Lucy Hardcastle, engaging activities and events, all hosted by local runners and creatives. Think – Highsnobiety and Reprezent Radio, Trippin, Blok Studios and Athene Club. Sounds epic, right? Whether you’re a runner or not, if you enjoy seeking out adventure in your city and pushing yourself to the limits of exploration, then this event is seriously up your street!
A marathon is not 26 miles. Or 42 kilometres. It’s 26.2. And 42.2. Truth be told, to some, that “Point 2” might seem teeny weeny compared with the whopping 42 miles on your tail… But every seasoned marathon runner will tell you that the physiological extremes your mind and body go through in the last 0.2 miles of a marathon are quite frankly insane.
Point 2 is a chance for anyone to experience the visuals, lights and textures of the climactic final stages of a marathon! Featuring a mesmerising sensory art installation by Lucy Hardcastle where the endorphin-filled exhilaration of running the full distance will be brought to life through immersive displays. Whether you’re a seasoned marathon pro, or more of a Couch to 5k in lockdown kind of character, this event is edge-of-your-seat kind of stuff, we have to say…
Upon entering Point 2 you can explore On’s inspiring origins story. You’ll find a brand space showcasing selected sportswear products. This will include the brand’s most anticipated sustainable sportswear, Cyclon, featuring trainers made of beans. Yes, you heard us right! Beans. Then why not grab your mates and venture over to the café or take part in one of the impressive events listed below…
Plotted around Point 2 are plenty of enticing activities, all organised by local wellness and creativity pioneers. We’re talking movement classes led by the renowned Blok Studios, to mindset and manifestation classes by Kira Matthews – there’s literally something for everyone to enjoy, whatever your fitness level! Go on an outdoor adventure with Athene Club’s workshop or dance the evening away with an epic opening night hosted by Highsnobiety and Reprezent Radio. If these names haven’t got you excited we don’t know what will.
Finally, let’s not forget that Sunday is fully dedicated to the London marathon with a live screening of the race and finisher rewards, so you can keep up with all the action. And if you need more inspiration! The team behind Paris-based running store Distance will run all the way from Paris to Point 2 in London, so you can run into some real running aficionados!
