Travis Barker & Kourtney Kardashian Recreate Iconic Forrest Gump Scene To Launch His New Wellness Project!

Travis Barker & Kourtney Kardashian Transform Into Forrest Gump Characters To Launch His New Wellness Project

Travis Barker just launched a new project, and he did so by channeling his inner Forrest Gump! He even enlisted the help of his wife, Kourtney Kardashian!

In a video posted to Instagram on Tuesday, the musician recreated the famous scene from the 1994 flick. The clip shows Travis putting on a red cap — similar to the one Tom Hanks‘ character wore in the movie — before getting off a bench and starting to jog across the grass. We then see the Blink-182 drummer running on a dirt path with trees and yellow flowers around him. Eventually, Kourt appears on the side of the road — dressed as Jenny — to yell out a rendition of the iconic line from the film:

“Run Travis, run!”

So, what’s the whole purpose of this reenactment? Travis is apparently launching a “run and wellness experience” called Run Travis Run! He wrote in the caption:

“I JUST FELT LIKE RUNNING Come run with me!!! Introducing Los Angeles (7/6) & Queens (7/21). Register now for the first-ever Run Travis Run events at and save with early bird registration through tomorrow night (6/19).”

Wow! Check out the post (below):

According to the website, the inspiration behind the running events stemmed from his plane crash back in 2008 – which killed four people. Meanwhile, Travis was left with third-degree burns on more than half of his body. While recovering from the traumatic experience, he took up running. He said:

“After my accident in 2008 more than 70% of my body was burnt and I was told by doctors that I may never be able to walk or play drums the same again. I was never athletic and I never played sports but I immediately had this urge to prove everyone wrong including myself. It started off with short walks and then that turned into short runs everyday. I felt this sense of calmness and a rush of dopamine every time I ran.”

Running helped him a lot. And ever since then, Trav’s kept up with the activity. Now, he wants to gather “like minded people together” to run. They’ll get a chance to jog with him and take fitness classes and mindfulness workshops as well.  He continued:

“I’ve kept this up for years now, and I always start my day with it. I even run 3 miles everyday before my shows when I’m on tour. This past year I ran my first half marathon and participated in a few 5k’s. I loved how everyone from all walks of life ran together and supported one another. The running community is massive and it really inspired me to create Run Travis Run as a way to bring like minded people together. I wanna motivate people to get outside and walk or run for a few hours, as well as make healthy decisions and create healthy habits.”

It’s sounds like Travis is very passionate about this new project! Reactions, Perezcious readers? Let us know in the comments below!
