Martinus Evans has run over eight marathons since his doctor told him to “lose weight or die” in July 2012. Since then, he’s also coached hundreds of runners and founded the Slow AF Run Club, a community of over 10,000 members worldwide. He is also the author of the book Slow AF Run Club: The ultimate guide for anybody who wants to run. When he’s not running races around the world, he enjoys speaking passionately about issues related to size-inclusivity, mindset, DEI and mental health.
Martinus makes the case that everyone is a runner. As long as your legs are moving faster than when you’re walking, you are running. He rids audiences of preconceived notions of what a runner should look like, and provides plans and even journaling prompts that help the most hesitant runner take more confident steps out the door.

"Martinus makes the case that everyone is a runner. As long as your legs are moving faster than when you’re walking, you are running. He rids audiences of preconceived notions of what a runner should look like, and provides plans and even journaling prompts that help the most hesitant runner take more confident steps out the door.
Slow AF Run Club goes through form, gait, gear, nutrition, and everything readers didn’t think (or were too ashamed) to ask. Martinus fearlessly reveals how to defeat the “chafe monster,” how to deal with hecklers, and how to safely run while Black. Each chapter includes a tale from his own journey and follows with tips, tricks, and answered questions for any new, non-traditional runner."
Meet Martinus Evans
"In 2012, Martinus Evans was a 360-pound former football player with a bachelor’s degree in exercise science working at Men’s Wearhouse. During the evaluation for his persistent hip pain, his doctor dropped a bomb: “Mr. Evans, you’re fat. You can either lose weight or die.” But Martinus defiantly created a third option – taking his life into his own hands and proving his doctor, and everyone who ever doubted him, wrong by running a marathon.
Since then, Martinus has completed 8 marathons, including Boston, New York, and Berlin, and more than one hundred other long-distance races. He was the first plus-sized ambassador for Adidas and has been on the cover of Runner’s World. Using his experience, Martinus challenges the conventional narrative of what a runner looks like in his new book Slow AF Run Club"
