The concept is developed by artist Thierry Geoffroy and the purpose is to train the awareness muscle by discussing a topic while running. Distances are relatively short and participants are often dressed in normal shoes and clothes.
Topics discussed so far include: "Does art has an impact in political decisions" and "optimism at the age of global war".
Critical Run has taken place in New York, London, Istanbul, Athènes, Paris, Siberia, Copenhagen, Moskow, Napoli and den Haag.
