UNDER ARMOUR FLOW STATE CHALLENGE Sports Under Armour United States
The We Are Social U.S. team was tasked with developing a social campaign supporting Under Armour’s biggest run release of 2021: the Flow Velociti Wind – igniting brand excitement and resonance with runners in a year where they’ve had nothing to train for.
Runners had two key challenges to overcome during the Pandemic:
- As we all did, runners entered a longing dream-like state to combat a year devoid of travel.
- They have also had to rely on their thirst for personal achievement at a time when competition has ceased to exist.
We launched the Flow State Challenge on UA’s running app MapMyRun, to help runners escape what the world has thrown their way and an opportunity to enter their Flow State, with 3 winners who logged 30 miles in 30 days rewarded with a trip to take their dream run around the world.
To kick off the challenge, we produced a remote launch video that saw 12 elite runners from around the world come together to push the running community to participate in the challenge and unlock their Flow State.
We developed an influencer playbook for UA’s regional teams, informing each market on how to activate talent and support the campaign locally. We also launched an Instagram AR filter for runners to create content with to bring to life the moment on your run when you step through that threshold and enter into another place—a place where you’re lighter, focused, and faster—your Flow State.
