The ZENRUN is a 5K & 10K run as well as a virtual race that will take place on November 17th, 2018 at the Historic Virginia Key Beach Park in Miami. Physically, that is. Participants can run on site, or participate from wherever they are worldwide, whether it's running around their neighborhood, through a forest, or on a treadmill as a virtual runner.
Meanwhile, participants who choose to do so listen to a guided meditation technique that serves as a tool to help runners improve their posture, focus their minds, and optimize breath work for improved performance with the ZENRUN APP. Or simply follow the course signs, which were designed to keep your mind focused on pleasant thoughts. What sets ZENRUN apart from other races is the intent. ZENRUN participants run contemplating joy, because keeping your mind pleasant you are better at everything you choose to be and do.
“Running can be a support for meditation, and meditation can be a support for running. Running is a natural form of exercise, for it is simply an extension of walking. When we run, we strengthen our heart, remove stagnant air, revitalize our nervous system, and increase our aerobic capacity. It helps us develop a positive attitude. It creates exertion and stamina and gives us a way to deal with pain. It helps us relax."
“With running, we call it being in the zone; with meditation it is the gap. In both, it’s that place where we are flowing through our experience. Our mind is calm, our body is relaxed, and our breath is effortless. We connect to the space between our thoughts, the space where every thought arises. It is a space of pure potential that we bring back with us after our run and meditation. There is a sense of confidence coupled with clarity and peace that allows people to face life with faith, optimism, and passion.”
