The Power of Running

It's a daily goal and a life-long aspiration.

It's a physical act and an emotional journey.

It's a foundation of health and a pinnacle achievement.

It takes time. It gives you years. 

It moves you away and brings you closer.

It is empowering. It is humbling.

It creates interaction. It enables solitude.

It tears down insecurities. It builds communities.

It takes a lot, but gives so much.

It is The Power of Running!

You're invited to join us as we celebrate all that The Power of Running For Good, Together, For Fun, and To Inspire does in our community!

Check the National Leaderboard!

150 locations. 60 minutes. 1 goal. Log the most miles together and win!

Join us and select vendor partners as we raise money for a local charity over the course of nine consecutive weekends!

We're taking running back to the games you played at recess (with some slight updates).
