A letter from Olivier Bernhard

From tough tests to strong starts. A message from our Co-Founder.


Dear runner,


As an athlete, it's during the toughest challenges that you learn, and grow, the most.


2020 was a tough test, but it was inspiring to be part of a global On community that found new ways to adapt, evolve and perform.


We gained new knowledge. New perspectives. New strength. Many of us gained a new appreciation for the power of running. Many discovered the power of running for the first time.


In a time of uncertainty, the simple act of putting one foot in front of the other became a much-needed constant.


We start this new year stronger for everything we learned from the last. And as we learned in 2020, you don't always need a finish line to keep running.


Whether you found running forever ago or running just found you, we're here to support you on your runner's journey.


Dear runner, let's make this our year. Let's dedicate 2021 to the run.



Olivier Bernhard
