The #RunForTheOceans event took place in Dubai last week, aiming to get people running to promote a life with less plastic - and to celebrate the launch of the new adidas X Parley UltraBOOST shoes (that are made from 11 recycled plastic bottles per pair).

Thousands of people came along to Nessnass Beach to celebrate, pledged to reduce their plastic usage - pledging to reduce their plastic usage and run for the oceans.

And it was AWESOME
