Kourtney Kardashian is happy to support Travis Barker.

The Lemme founder, 45, was by her husband's side on Saturday, July 6, as the rocker followed through on his goal to “get people outside” while hosting the inaugural "Run Travis Run" wellness event in Los Angeles.

Kardashian and Barker, 48, were photographed embracing at the event, as the mom of four paired a long-sleeve shirt with black leggings. Barker, meanwhile, donned a graphic T-shirt and shorts.

The Blink-182 drummer — who is scheduled to perform with his band at the Kia Forum after the event — was also captured running alongside other participants.

Barker told PEOPLE before the event, "I don't want it to be discouraging. It should just be fun."

"I feel like everyone can get out and do 5Ks. Even if they see this, and they don't run it, maybe it motivates them to get outside," he continued.

As for his own go-to exercises, Barker previously told PEOPLE he starts every day “by walking 30 minutes while I consume some sort of audiobook or podcast."

"And I do the same thing at night because I've always struggled with sleeping, especially after shows when I'm wound up and hyper," the star added. “I've just found wellness and working out is so critical for everything that I do."

Kardashian, for her part, previously told PEOPLE that she and Barker bonded by exercising together before their romance began.

"We would always work out together and run together or do stuff like that together before we were ever in a relationship — we were workout buddies forever," she explained.

Barker once shared on Instagram that his interest in health and wellness came following the 2008 plane crash that killed four people and left him and DJ AM (Adam Michael Goldstein), the sole survivors, in critical condition. (Goldstein died a year later from a prescription drug overdose.)

"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," the musician wrote.

"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. 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," he continued.

"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," Barker added.

"The running community is massive and it really inspired me to create Run Travis Run as a way to bring like minded people together," he then concluded. "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."
