Buddha You Run started in November, 2015. Po Lin Monastery aims at encouraging people to take up running as part of their everyday life. Running promotes physical fitness and trains one’s mind and will. It also helps runners pursue self-betterment, and generate positive energies for themselves, their friends and families and the community.
