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 to celebrate runners of all body shapes. Each of our designs provide quality sportswear which will fit and flatter runners of all sizes when they are on the move. With every step you take, your CONTRA clothing will stretch and move with you.
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 all of our customers.
Paul’s ambition for CONTRA goes one gigantic step further, one that you will 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 hosted in 21 countries around the world stay free, for everyone, forever.
Thank you for your support
