Patta Running Team was founded in 2010 by Patta co-founder, Edson Sabajo, as a way to motivate his friends and family to train, chill, laugh and party together. Initially a small band of Amsterdam based creatives and casual runners, Edson has captained the team as it has expanded and even added a second Rotterdam based chapter.
Now the team consists of people from many different backgrounds and a wide variety of events in terms of running pace and intensity. Whilst each runner’s objective may differ from person to person, the overall team is not too focused on having an extremely healthy lifestyle. For Patta, it’s primarily about coming together as a group, dragging each other over the finish line, seeing different places together, and most importantly, having fun.
