The Long Run
A tribute to female athletes.
The achievements of women in the most varied sports are a symbol of evolution and empowerment in a world originally restrict to men.
The Long Run collection honors the female athletes who have opened doors to women’s sports, those who have traveled the first kilometers towards gender equality in sports. We still haven’t reached the finish line, but we’re continuing our journey to complete this marathon.
