"Fleet are the feet, serene in the spirit of the runner."

– Fleet Feet co-founder Sally Edwards

Created first in 1976 by Fleet Feet co-founders Elizabeth Jansen (left) and Sally Edwards (right), Fleet Feet Running Club defined a group of people associated together not by how fast or far they ran, but by the spirit and passion they displayed in doing so. 


Fleet Feet Running Club is back for everyone. No matter where you are on your running journey, there's a program that is:

  • Led by passionate and knowledgeable coaches
  • Championed by dedicated and magnetic mentors
  • Guided by the most relevant safety standards
  • Supported by the coolest partners and brands
  • Fueled by the determination of its participants

No matter where you are on your running journey, we have a program and group to run with you.

NEW FOR 2018


The beauty of running is that it can be done in a variety of places, by people of all abilities, at distances both short and long. The programs available through Fleet Feet Running Club reflect that, covering all levels, every surface, and any distance. 


We believe all your hard work and effort deserve a symbol of achievement, which is why all Fleet Feet Running Club members will earn a badge after completion of any of our programs. Adorned with the current year, each badge features an original design specific to that program.

No Boundaries 5k FINISH Program ($95):  Our iconic beginner program for those new to running – especially those looking to get off the couch and start moving.

5K FAST Program ($45): For those runners looking to challenge their previous best and cross the finish line faster than ever before. This option is built around improving your personal pace, with interval training, dynamic stretching, visualization and strength-training incorporated into a progressive workout schedule to keep your body and mind on track.

The 5k Fast Program is designed by Scott Wojnarowicz who as coach of Capital Preparatory High School developed 4:12 milers as well as the city’s first XC team to win a state championship. Program is more an independent training guide, but the group will be encouraged to meet-up on Saturday mornings at 8:30am for motivation, instruction and advice from Coach W.

Bolton 5-Mile Program ($95): For those ready to expand beyond the 5k and challenge themselves to a new distance. This fully coached program will increase your endurance and make your stronger as you learn to love running hills in preparation for running THE HILL at the Bolton Road Race.

Distance Project (TBD): For those looking to PR a half or full marathon, we are teaming up with some of the area’s best high school and college coaches to offer a wholistic program that develops strength and endurance via a unique combination of cross-training (weights plus other modalities like rowing), mobility and running. Registration & more details coming soon.

UCAN Change Challenge: If your New Years Resolutions include losing a few pounds or even just eating cleaner (but you really don't want to diet), this might be the challenge for you! We ran a mini version of this challenge last spring and had some incredible results with the majority of active participants dropping a2-3% body fat in just 6-weeks. The challenge is simple, have a UCAN protein shake for breakfast and replace one afternoon snack with a UCAN bar - eat normally the rest of the time. UCAN nutritionists will help conduct the challenge and there will be discounts on UCAN for participants. Registration & more details coming soon.
