Husband and wife, Pete and Sam, have always wanted to ‘start a business’, so combining Pete’s love of running and Sam’s passion for brands (alongside her when-she-feels-like-it ‘passion’ for running), they launched a fun new running clothing brand which inspires happy running and happy minds.

“Who isn’t happy during and when they finish a run?” says Pete. “It helps me with all areas in my life including mental health and wellbeing and when I finish a training run or race, ! feel pumped for life.”

“After reading ‘Shoe Dog’, Phil Knight’s book on how he launched Nike,” Pete explains, “It got me feeling inspired to consider opportunities in the market for running clothing. A few days after, I ran a local race and noticed a lot of boring black shorts… including my own!”

Happystride was then born, specialising in a fun range of running and activewear products. Their unisex shorts include bananas, avocados, flamingos + leopard print designs. Whether you’re running races, training, or pounding the pavements, you’ll be sure to stand out with happystride!

Running keeps Pete and Sam happy and they appreciate how running and fitness helps lots of people keep happy minds, especially during lockdown. Happystride is all about happy minds and so each sale supports a mental health charity – this year happystride’s chosen charity is My Black Dog.

Happystride specialises in shorts, leggings and socks.
