After the event, we also got to enjoy some treats from the Tribe pack – a delivery of different delicious, nutrient-rich snacks and inspiration for runners – and I signed up to try a pack of my own. To fit in with their “Eat Natural, Run Free” ethos, each of their Tribe boxes feature only the highest quality, unrefined wholefoods with no refined sugars or sulphites. Each week, fortnight or month, depending on your subscription, you are sent a lovely box of five snacks that are tailored specifically for your training needs. As well as the healthy snacks, each box also comes with a Tribe Life magazine in which there are recipes, nutritional and training advice and a list of their upcoming running events. If that’s not enough to entice you, 10p from every Tribe box sold goes towards the Tribe for Good charity supporting fundraising projects and adventures by Tribe runners.
I was excited to open my box when it dropped through my letter box last week and was even more delighted when I saw this message from Chris McDougall (author of Born to Run) written about the legendary Tarahumara ultra-runners on the inside –
As a relatively new company I’m really impressed with Tribe so far and looking forward to seeing what new and exciting ideas and events they have planned in the future. In the upcoming months they have runs all around London again paired with some great healthy living brands including nut-butter-making-extraordinaires Pip and Nut, the geniuses at ClassPass, the lovely girls at Sweaty Betty and the one and only Rude Health. I’ll definitely be trying to fit in some of their lovely runs as part of my training, and the best part – they’re all FREE!
