The 5K water bottle and belt are designed specifically for a mid/short distance run around 5 kilometers long. The bottle can be clipped to the belt, or on the user's clothes. It is designed to use with a single hand easily during a run. The optional belt holds the essentials (phones, keys, etc.) with an elastic and adjustable strap that fit more body types.
I started off with a team of 4 other designers to research the exercisers at Blackstone Boulevard, a casual runners' street/park. We researched the area, created infographics from observations, as well as surveyed the runners (in exchange of free lemonade!)
The specific question below caught my attention, and I realized that most people are not staying hydrated as they should on a run.
I explored many possibilities during the initial concept generation. I even thought about attaching something to the trees that could give runners access to water (didn't actually go with that idea).
