McLEAR announced as Foundation Partner for One Running Movement
The organisers of One Running Movement, a collaborative evolution for movement and change, have announced McLEAR as a Foundation Partner.
The partnership will see British technology company McLEAR supporting One Running Movement across its event portfolio for 2020 and beyond, whilst contributing to its mission to inspire current and future generations to embrace regular physical activity and #MoveForLife.
One Running Movement offers non-competitive, virtual and live cumulative running events for schools at both the half marathon and marathon distance, which are part of Schools Running Movement, as well as virtual and live Direct Entry events across the UK for all from age 13+. The live events bring everyone together to run the last 1.1 (Half Marathon) or 1.2 (Marathon) mile at a track or venue, where the runners receive their medal and a carton of water at the finish whilst experiencing the thrill and atmosphere of a full-scale running event.
By encouraging school pupils, siblings and families to get active and rewarding them along the way, One Running Movement is playing an important part in encouraging both youngsters and adults to develop healthy habits to exercise regularly, improve wellbeing, reduce screen time and build confidence through sport.
The leader in Smart Ring Payments, McLEAR is highlighting how wearable technology is changing the way people can make payments. The McLEAR Smart Ring is a small, lightweight device that allows the user to make fast and secure contactless payments by simply tapping their hand – removing the need for bank cards and phones and enabling a quick and seamless transaction. The technology offers a high-quality user experience and puts McLEAR at the forefront of the manufacture of electronic smart rings and security systems.
With technology an increasingly important part of One Running Movement, the top tier partnership with McLEAR is an exciting step that will help to drive the movement forwards alongside other Foundation Partners.
Every McLEAR Smart Ring purchased via https://mclear.com/one contributes to generating places for primary school children in the Schools Half Marathon or Schools Marathon.
