General Information


Our mission:  Runner2Runner provides school-based running programs for youth. 

We develop cross-country, track and field training and competition in a safe, positive and supportive environment.

  • Establish school teams comprised of boys and girls
  • Personalized, progressive workouts
  • Establish and build athleticism
  • Guide athletes through competition
  • Instill confidence to excel at life’s challenges and embrace leadership roles.
