Inspired by the 11:54.048 record set recently by one of Impi’s favourite Australian female sporting role models Genevieve LaCaze Gregson, we are excited to launch the Impi Sportswear Virtual 3.8km “Tan Challenge”.
Proudly brought to you by IMPI SPORTSWEAR and our friends GOODR sunglasses, LACE UP RUNNING and FITTER FUTURES.
