Black Trail Runners on why they do what they do
In partnership with adidas Terrex — Members of Black Trail Runners share some of their reasons to run as part of #UnitedBySummits, a campaign that looks to uncover transformative power of the outdoors.

“Trail running allows me to create my own space in a city of eight million people,” says Jazmin from Black Trail Runners. “It’s the ultimate form of escapism.”

She’s talking in a new video that forms part of adidas Terrex’s United by Summits campaign. Along with fellow BTR member Deo, she dives into the reasons she runs, and how the transformative power of the outdoors has impacted her.

Watch the video below.
