Because Every Kid Deserves a Coach.


We've built Team Long Run on a few ideas.

In the words of one of our former athletes, running helps a kid “discover their own worth and capability.”  Running is one of the few remaining activities available to kids that unfailingly reward consistency and sacrifice.  Please re-read that last sentence and consider how important that is today.  Running has always been a refiner’s fire; the hotter it burns, the purer the gold.

Running is healthy and natural.  Given proper guidance and time, anyone can enjoy life-quality benefits from running… especially kids.  Improved concentration, time-management, confidence, fitness, sleep, nutrition, and pure grit are just a few of the rewards a runner earns, and should happily expect. 

Running provides a fool-proof opportunity to set goals and honestly assess progress.
