UNRUN is a high-end sustainable activewear brand, founded and designed by Olympic Champions with an eye for detail and an impeccable fit. As hands-on experts, we have an unrivaled knowledge of how sportswear must feel, move, breathe, and look. Additionally, all pieces are tested and approved by a group of elite female athletes, making them a true testament to craftsmanship.
From a sweat at the gym to the drill of daily life, we’re on a continuous quest to create the most versatile garments, withstanding every workout.
In 2008, the seemingly impossible became reality. We won a gold medal at the Beijing Olympics in the 4x100 relay in Track and Field in 42 seconds 54 hundreds.
We were sponsored athletes our entire career. Having lived the life of professional athletes ourselves, we experienced clothes getting better, more technical and performance driven. And with that evolution, the fashion aspect faded into the background.
While there still is a strong need for self-expression on the track today. Women wear make-up, paint their nails and wear jewelry that make them feel special and strong. We look up to inspiring women like the late Florence Joyner Griffith and Jackie Joyner Kersee. Athletes who did not only stand out by their extraordinary performance, but also by their sense of fashion and style on the track.
It’s amazing to experience that our edgy, true to sports garments and sporty ready-to-wear pieces surprise sports enthusiasts and lure fashion lovers into activewear.

Alongside her high level sports career, Elodie graduates as a journalist before joining the editorial department of ELLE Belgium.

JOIN THE MOVEMENT
DON'T LET THEM STOP YOU
As women, we’re facing many obstacles. Inequalities.
We’ve reached unparallelled milestones in our athletic careers, but part of our journey is still unrun.
Female athletes constantly set and break records, and push the boundaries of gender inequality. They're raising the bar, for what we ever thought was possible in athletics.
We never wanted to launch just an activewear brand. We want to create a community of women that inspire and support each other. A community that’s more conscious, activist, driven and righteous than ever before.
