Willempje & Leonieke, founders of FigureRunning, here to run for you. In line with this year’s theme Urban Futures, we’re excited to introduce you to a new creative tech sport called FigureRunning!

Let other people run for you at PICNIC Festival 2011  ...
FigureRunning encourages you to get creative, go outside and discover new places while running and getting fit. The competition is not about your running speed or distance, it’s all about drawing. Using GPS in your smartphone, you can draw images while you are running. A line follows the actual route your run and you yourself are the pencil creating the artwork.

YEAH YEAH, HOW CAN I MAKE THEM RUN?

Every day, the best, funniest, most retweeted or most original request will be selected and run by Willempje and Leonieke. The drawings will be shown at the round-up of PICNIC11 on Friday afternoon, and, of course, you will get your FigureRun digitally.
