How To Claim Your Journey

Run Bimma

Run Bimma started the “Claim Your Journey” Brand as a personal training blog for a trail running series that took place throughout the state of Louisiana in 2011. He decided to compete in the series as part of a New Year’s resolution. What was the resolution? To start running again for the first time in years. Growing up an only child in a single parent home, running was always there for him.  He named the brand Claim Your Journey because he wanted it to be something inspiring. Together, the words are just that. While participating in the series, he wore a Run Louisiana t-shirt to the races. It became pretty popular and tons of runners began asking about the shirt. He started printing the shirts and selling them out of his 2004 Chevy pickup truck everywhere he went. In 2012, he decided to quit his job at LSU to pursue sharing his vision to inspire runners around the world through clothing. Run Bimma built a company through sharing his personal journey with incredible runners that inspire him everyday.
