In May 2023, lululemon announced the multi-year global FURTHER campaign to celebrate human possibility and how far women can go. As part of this FURTHER campaign, lululemon held the FURTHER Ultramarathon, the first-of-its-kind Women’s Ultramarathon from the brand. The six-day ultramarathon began on March 6, 2024, ahead of International Women’s Day, and culminated on March 12, 2024, at Lake Cahuilla in La Quinta, California. It featured 10 female athletes from its global ambassador collective, including Yoon Young Kang, an ultrarunner with Judo Black Belt from South Korea and Vriko Kwok, a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Athlete and entrepreneur from Hong Kong.

“Women have historically been overlooked and underserved in athletics, and as a brand committed to helping all people feel their best, we have a responsibility to create more equity for our communities by investing to close this gap,” said Nikki Neuburger, Chief Brand Officer, lululemon. “When supported with innovation and resources, we are confident women will continue to redefine the limits of what’s possible. This is the motivation and purpose behind our FURTHER initiative.”
