Nike meets the female running groups from around the world in this documentary.
All-girl running groups have been growing in popularity in recent years. For some it’s about having a strong set of friends to exercise with and for others it’s about visibly representing people from your background. In this doc, some of the women describe their running groups and tell us why they decided to start them. One of the girls started the all-Muslim running crew Asra. Running in public can be quite a daunting thing for some people, so having a set of friends to run alongside you is always a good idea.
These groups offer women a safe space to communicate with each other and support one another. Sport and fitness can be an excellent tool for people to come together over. Running crews form a vital part of many communities around the world and will likely continue to do so for the foreseeable future. Did you enjoy the video? Let us know down in the comments.
