about us

Run Project is more than a series of race events

It is about bringing together those who love to race, those who want to give back and support, and those who want to keep it local. It’s cool, it’s hip, and it is good for the soul. Keeping it local is how we roll. All our community partners are local non-profits or local affiliates of nationwide charities and organizations and all monies raised will stay in the local area.

  • Our courses are marked 3 different ways, and the lead cyclists are our staff. “Run” assured you never have to worry about being led off the course.
