GPR is all about people, culture and running. We love stories and photography that inspire, motivate, move and connect to runners, whether it’s a tale from an elite or a complete beginner. We are also looking for more business partners who feel the same way.
The GPR collective is central to the operations of Good People Run, but nothing would be achievable without the help and support of the running community.
At the end of the day we are all equal as runners and GPR wants to celebrate the special ‘essence’ of what we love.
At GPR we love to blog about stories from every type of runner, about everything that makes them a runner. We are always looking for stories that capture the challenging and emotional aspects of running and personal, genuine and honest writings from runners to inspire others.
What can we offer to you as a writer or photographer?
At this stage of GPR’s development we can’t pay contributing writers or photographers as currently we are only covering our overheads as a profit free project. What we can do is send you a truckers cap, goodie pack with GPR stickers and some limited edition artwork, and offer you regular editorials/ contributions knowing that it is being seen and enjoyed all over the world. The GPR platform is a perfect way to build your brand or skills– so please feel free to get in touch about any ideas or questions you may have as a writer or photographer.
What we can offer you as a businesses or athlete?
Are you a running centric business or athlete? Do you want to market your amazing products or skills? Good People Run offers a great platform for you to talk to your audience and can be as simple as exchanging regular articles in return for a platform to share your AWESOME and engage with a captive readers! Please feel free to get in touch to ‘talk business’ and how can work together.
What we can offer you as a brand ambassador?
We just LOVE seeing our gear out in the wild- on the trail, track, road or coffee shop!
