We are Running Alliance Sport, and our motto is, "By Runners, For Runners."
We are a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit organization.
We have a Board, about twenty Committee members, and hundreds of volunteers, scattered over a fairly large geographical area.
Most of us work for a living at something else - we have full time jobs and do the work of producing these races - five a year at the moment - in our "spare" time.
We do this because we are runners, or have been runners when we are able to be. We love this community. That's how we know what aspects are important to runners when we organize a race and we put our hearts into creating, organizing, staffing and running these events.
Another project dear to our hearts is our Marathon Clubs for school kids - kids that run 26.2 miles or more during school year are eligible, and RAS provides t-shirt and a medal to every kid that qualifies.
We don't make any money from doing this - we give everything that isn't the cost of production to the charitable causes you see noted on our race websites. We feel good about that. You can too.
Thanks for running our races, and participating our events.
See you at the next one!
