Many runners often go about their exercise alone given the somewhat independent nature of running, so the conceptual 'With' running accessory aims to change this experience with a connected aesthetic.

The running baton works by alerting friends when you're running to remind them to get out for a jog or as a way to help incite some healthy competition. This helps to connect those who might otherwise feel somewhat out of the loop with their friends who are on different schedules and can't run right alongside them each day.

The 'With' running accessory is the design work of Minki Kim and acknowledges the increasingly individual lifestyle of many consumers that is pushing many to seek out ways to stay connected to their friends.
