Click have explored three standout campaigns that are a great example of how brands can inspire health and wellness for their target audience!

In May 2023, Adidas launched a “Run for The Oceans” campaign, with the goal to help end plastic waste.

Between the 23rd May and the 8th June 2023, Adidas and Parley would clean up the equivalent of 10 plastic bottles from beach and ocean areas for every kilometre run and logged onto the Adidas running app.

The campaign generated huge amounts of positive publicity and media coverage for Adidas – especially since it aligns with current trends and societal concerns surrounding sustainability and climate change. This has increased brand visibility, attracted attention from consumers, influencers, and media outlets, all whilst making a healthy impact for both participants, and the planet.

Lululemon launched their FURTHER initiative in March 2023, a groundbreaking event with the goal of demonstrating the distance women can go when they receive the same products and resources as men. The event which began on 6th March 2024 consisted of a 6-day Ultra marathon, where 10 female athletes challenged themselves to run FURTHER than they had before, with some hoping to break a number of world records in the process.

To aid them in their goals, Lululemon conducted female-specific research to understand sex-specific differences, countering the years of research that had been conducted solely on men, to support female athletes’ to reach full potential. This research, which monitored blood oxygen and nutrition amongst other elements, not only aided the FURTHER athletes in achieving their goals but also provided valuable scientific data for future women’s sporting endeavours.

During the event they unveiled a new range of 36 different products that were developed to address the unique needs of female athletes, offering situational and always-on functions crucial for a multi-day race. Key innovations include:

  • The Beyondfeel Women’s Running Shoe, featuring a unique last shaped by the female foot and new supercritical foam for enhanced comfort and support
  • The Support Code Bra, which offers high-support with a minimalist design and chafe-free construction
  • The Runsie combines performance and aesthetic with features such as 360-degree waistband storage and legwear split for range of motion
  • Cooling apparel and accessories were also introduced to prioritise cooling functionality and elevate performance during endurance runs

All of the women achieved huge accomplishments during the event, with many surpassing personal milestones and outdoing previous performances. Notably, the event saw athlete Camille Herron breaking multiple world records, including the Women’s Six Day World Record and several other distance-related records, highlighting the incredible achievements possible when women are supported and provided with innovative resources.
