One Running Movement & McLEAR partnership continues to evolve

One Running Movement’s partnership with Smart Ring pioneers McLEAR, which was officially announced in January this year, has been evolving over the last few months with both parties working together to drive the movement forwards and to increase regular physical activity for current and future generations to #MoveForLife

McLEAR is the pioneer of wearable payment technology for consumers and businesses, and every McLEAR Smart Ring purchased via this dedicated page contributes to generating free ballot places for movers through One Running Movement, for everyone from the age of 4 upwards.

McLEAR has also been confirmed as a partner on Run for Climate Change, which is the latest programme launched by One Running Movement. Run For Climate Change is a new annual event, with the first edition taking place virtually this year where runners don’t just get rewarded with a sustainably sourced medal but also get a tree planted in their name (or dedicated to a loved one) by Planet-U Energy at a Yorkshire location. Runners of all ages can sign up to run a chosen distance of 5K, 10K, Half Marathon or Marathon, with benefits for the planet, communities, charities and their own wellbeing.

In addition to the generation of free places through the purchase of a McLEAR Smart Ring via the dedicated page, McLEAR have also chosen a One Running Movement charity partner collaboration as one of the benefiting organisations for their new RingPay Giving feature.

The RingPay Giving feature, launched in partnership with Parsnip (getparsnip.com), allows Ring holders to automatically send a micro-sized donation to their chosen charity when they make a purchase using their Smart Ring. Ring holders control how much they give using monthly donation caps. Any donations made to One Running Movements’s preferred charity, DigiLearning Foundation will contribute to free technology education courses for children, young adults and adults.

Joe Williams and Rebecca Richardson, Founders of One Running Movement, said: “We enjoy working with McLEAR, who are pioneers in their industry like us and we love the new RingPay features. Evolution, education and technology are hugely important to us at One Running Movement, and we would like to thank McLEAR for their continued support”.

“Carrying payment on your fingers and removing the need for cash, payment cards or getting your phone out is more relevant than ever before – if you can contribute to getting children aged 4 to 16 active through purchasing or using your Smart Ring then that’s another bonus!“

Daniel Blondell, Chief Operating Officer said: “We are proud to be working with One Running Movement and helping all ages to #MoveForLife more”.

“The mission with RingPay is to improve the payment experience; making it faster, effortless and more rewarding. Whether commuting to work, picking up some essentials or off on your travels, RingPay by McLEAR gives you peace of mind knowing your finances are safely in-hand. Just kick back and fist pump your way to better spending and awesome rewards.” 

McLEAR invented the Smart Ring in 2012, which is designed and manufactured to be water and shock resistant and requires no battery; making it the ideal wearable payment device that fits seamlessly into any lifestyle. Ring holders can set rules and manage their Ring through a dedicated app, which also gives them access to numerous exclusive features and benefits.

National Pride and One Running Movement get children moving in East Ayrshire

One Running Movement (ORM), a collaborative evolution for movement and change #MoveForLife, is bringing Schools Half Marathon | The Barony supported by National Pride and Active Schools to East Ayrshire this autumn.

With COVID-19 related measures and restrictions in place across Scotland, the importance of movement to benefit both physical and mental health is more relevant than ever before.

National Pride, a Community Interest Company established in 2018, has recently purchased The Barony with the intention of creating an eco-therapy wellness centre on the site.
As part of their investment in the area and in line with their core values, National Pride has funded a number of places for school children in the surrounding area of The Barony to complete their own Schools Half Marathon The Barony this year.

Schools Half Marathon is organised by One Running Movement (ORM) which was established to help create more active communities and support the creation of healthy habits, utilising the power of sport to improve physical and health and mental health.

The 2020 Schools Half Marathon The Barony will be taking place virtually, with the children completing their own cumulative 13.1 miles at school or at home before the end of the year, supported by Active Schools East Ayrshire Council.

All young runners will receive a Schools Half Marathon Colour My Miles Tracker, a wall tracker, a 6 star wristband awarded on completion of six miles, a One Running Movement technical t-shirt and a special edition finisher’s medal. The special edition “The Barony A-Frame“ medal is based on the huge pit-head winding gear frame which is all that remains of the colliery, reflecting the area’s history and heritage.

Irene Bisset, Chair at National Pride, said, “The Barony is an exciting, new project for National Pride and we are delighted to support local ORM activities. These fit perfectly with our belief in the role of the natural environment in wellness, physical and mental health.

“We are very proud to fund free places for primary school aged children in East Ayrshire, working with One Running Movement and Active Schools to encourage the future generation to be active. Being outside and experiencing nature has never been more important.”

Joe Williams and Rebecca Richardson, Founders of One Running Movement, added: “One Running Movement is very much aligned with National Pride’s mission, ethos and core values. We enjoy working with the team and continue to make a difference to current and future generations through the power of sport and movement, with health and wellness at the forefront of everybody’s mind”.

“The Barony A-Frame is a symbol of local pride and hope, and we are sure that the special edition medals earned by the young movers will find a proud place in their homes.“

National Pride is one of the Foundation Partners and Powered by Partners working together with founders Rebecca Richardson and Joe Williams. Foundation Partners include Polar, Up & Running, New Balance, One Water, McLEAR and Planet-U Energy, UKRunChat, Women’s Running, Run Mummy Run, Social Run Group, Breathe Unity and Social Chain.
