How did the idea develop?

Florens von der Decken, the founder of RUN TO DISCOVER, developed the idea of this new platform while writing a new post for his former personal blog in March 2016. He moved a lot due to his studies and so he decided to write some posts with the title "Run To Discover" about running in the various cities he lived in.

Chatting to a friend about the new "city guides" the idea of a platform, on which other runners can present their cities, came up. Right after the chat the first steps to develop "RUN TO DISCOVER - The Runner's Travel Guide" had been taken. 


Behind RUN TO DISCOVER are many runners from all over the world! Without the contribution of all of you, this platform wouldn't be possible! Thank you!


The platform is managed by Florens von der Decken the founder of RUN TO DISCOVER - a 29 year old sports enthusiast - who decided in 2012 to run his first single race: the Berlin-Marathon! Since then running is his big passion. So is traveling! Whenever he is on the go, his running shoes are with him to discover unknown places by running.
