We are student-athletes looking to give back to our local communities by providing team-focused running practices and races to kids of all ability levels. Run Your City is a completely free program to increase accessibility for families of all backgrounds.
Run Your City is a non-profit organization that aims to build an inclusive community around the sport of running. We aim to foster children’s growth into healthy, confident, and inspired individuals.
Within a year and a half of becoming an official 501(c)3 non-profit, we have acquired the participation of over 300 kids, 70 student-athlete volunteers, and professional athletes. We have also been featured in local Charlottesville newspapers, UVA Today, NBC, CBS, and the ACC Network. Run Charlottesville is a growing movement, and this spring we are proud to officially launch our pilot expansion program: Run Harrisonburg.
Build a future where collegiate athletes join with local communities to ensure team sports are accessible to all kids regardless of socioeconomic factors.
