“Gone For A Run” – Running Store’s Questionable Practices Exposed

On Thursday, Dorothy Beal (@mileposts) fired off a tweet aimed at the running website GoneforaRUN.com.

This website very clearly took Dorothy’s words and used those words (and the design) on one of their products.

They did not deny this, and offered an apology.

Runner’s World Editor, Kit Fox summed up their reply perfectly:

Maybe this was an honest oversight? They say they have strict instructions relating to the creation of their designs.

However, Dorothy pointed out more examples of brands she says GoneforaRUN.com has ripped off.

I found these running shorts. Very clearly a knockoff of The BAA’s and Boston Marathon’s iconic unicorn symbol.

Also, for $35 you can run their Virtual races, which features a familiar theme. Why run at Disney when you can run a virtual, knockoff version?

It would seem very clear that taking Dorothy’s words and design from her post was not a simple oversight. It appears that what Dorothy discovered represents a pattern with GoneforaRUN.
