    On 03/26/1987, the first sneaker with the legendary visible Air cushioning revolutionized the sneaker market. Tinker Hatfield's Air Max 1 appeared and is still making history 35 years later.

    Since 2014, Nike and the sneaker community have celebrated the brand's most successful and arguably iconic line on this day. The Air Max Day stands for community and was created for the community - we want to use this association and cohesion this year: together we run for a good cause.

    With the current wars going on in our world, everything else in our everyday life seems so insignificant. Millions of people are currently fleeing war zones. We look to the East, but also to the other conflicts and refugee flows, which have not only existed in our world since yesterday and donate per kilometer run on 26.03.22, 1€ to the Support PRO ASYL. PRO ASYL campaigns for the rights of refugees and migrants in Germany and Europe.

    Run with us, set a sign & show solidarity.


    There are two ways to participate: Digitally or live on site. On Saturday, March 26, at 2:00 p.m., our local community will meet at Herrngarten-Café (Restaurant Leyli ) in Darmstadt. You are invited to be there and run with us!
