Thanks for joining us!
We are really excited about launching our brand to the world.
It is early days but we can already see that CONTRA is being appreciated for doing things differently.
CONTRA is the creation of Paul Sinton-Hewitt, the founder of parkrun. Paul’s ambition has been to create a sportswear brand that truly supports and encourages movement for everyone whilst ensuring all sourcing of CONTRA’s range meets the highest ethical manufacturing standards.
For us to live up to these aims we have deliberately set CONTRA on a different track to other traditional sports brands. Our range is available in 10 sizes for both men and women; in big, bold, refreshing colours; made with top quality technical fabrics sourced within Europe; manufactured in European factories where workers are guaranteed good working conditions and a fair wage by law. All this whilst maintaining affordable prices for our customers.
Paul’s ambition for CONTRA goes one gigantic step further, one that you’ll love. A huge benefit of CONTRA is that the profit from sales of the brand’s sportswear goes directly to supporting parkrun, helping to ensure these inspiring and inclusive community events stay free, for everyone, forever.
Thank you for your support
