Motivating Minnesotans to become stronger runners while living happier lives.
Becoming a stronger runner is something everyone can do. From elites to beginners, or those just happy to be out there - running gives us an opportunity to push ourselves faster or farther than we thought possible. It’s about a lifestyle of taking care of our physical, emotional, and social wellbeing.
When you Become a stronger runner, you Live a Happier Life.
Living a happier life is simply doing what you love to do with people you care about for causes that make an impact in the world. It’s about living with purpose and surrounding yourself with those who support that.
Happier looks different for everyone, but we believe, it starts by running. Taking that first step out the door or the last of a 26.2 mile journey - running provides a platform for building confidence that becomes the foundation of of a happier, more fulfilled life.
