The North Face celebrates the Chicago running community with a fun run followed by a presentation and book signing with November Project founders Brogan Graham and Bojan Mandaric on Friday, October 7.
As part of The North Face Never Stop Exploring Speaker Series, the 2.65 mile run will start at The North Face Store on Michigan Avenue and end at the Navy Pier Rooftop Terrace. In their presentation, Graham and Mandaric will share how two Bostonians started the global fitness movement, called The November Project, which changed the status quo of training.
In 2011, former collegiate athletes Brogan Graham and Bojan Mandaric were looking for a way to stay fit through the tough New England winter. They missed the camaraderie and accountability of their team rowing days, so they made a pact to each other and began inviting friends and then strangers to join them in their high-octane workouts. They met in random Boston locations to do calisthenics and run stairs or hills. Five years later the free fitness movement called The November Project has spread to over 25 cities across North America (plus Finland and Serbia), it helped inspire The North Face Mountain Athletics workouts and now it has inspired now book.
Join The North Face and experience the passion and dedication of two guys who inspired thousands across the globe to ‘get fit’.
