Travis Barker has announced two health and fitness experiences in Los Angeles and New York this summer.

The blink-182 drum icon is putting on a pair of ‘world-class wellness experiences’, dubbed Run Travis Run, on July 6 and July 21 – and it sounds like it’s very much just the beginning of his plans for the fitness world…

“After my accident in 2008, more than 70 per cent of my body was burnt,” Travis explains. “I was told by doctors that I may never be able to walk or drum again, so I set out to prove everybody wrong, including myself.

“What started with short walks turned into short runs every day. This past year I ran my first half marathon and participated in a few 5Ks,” he continues. “The running community is massive and I loved how everyone from all walks of life ran together and supported one another.

“This is what Run Travis Run was built off of and we’re only getting started.”

Taking place at the Kia Forum and Queens’ Citi Field respectively, each Run Travis Run event will include a morning run (obviously) at 9am, after which you’ll also get a limited-edition shirt and medal. The wellness segment includes fitness classes and workshops, and Travis will also be doing a ‘day-in-the-life’ experience, where you can participate in his ‘pre-concert routine centred around running, health and wellness’.
