RunSync believes in true synchronisation, of the mind, the body and the soul. We wish to help people ace the art of syncing through effective running. Our logo demonstrates our philosophy too. The RED represents the aggression and the power of the body, the BLUE
demonstrates the state of calm and tranquility of the mind and the SPIKES demonstrate the heartbeat. Once all of the three are in perfect synchronisation, you experience what everyone calls “Runner’s High” and what we call as the state of “One.” RunSync believes in harmony in all the aspects of life and feels that the destination to achieving all things good start by feeling good.
