What we're about

Whether you are just getting off the couch or a seasoned competitor, our training Blue Crews will help you prepare for a successful event. All fitness levels are welcome and encouraged to join us!

Our vision is to give every child the chance to live a healthy life. Our goal is to have those who can, TRAIN FOR KIDS and encourage them to RUN BECAUSE YOU CAN.

Our unique model raises funds to host our after school Youth Fitness Program through membership fees from our R4R Blue Crew (https://www.meetup.com/Runnin-for-Rhett-Blue-Crew-Train-for-more-than-yourself/) adult training program, supplemented with events (http://www.runninforrhett.org/events/) we host and generous corporate and individual sponsors (http://www.runninforrhett.org/sponsors/).

So when you train with R4R’s Blue Crew, you are training not only for yourself but for the youth of our community. Every two months you are a member of the Blue Crew you enable another student to participate in the R4R Youth Fitness Program. 1 year of your training = enables 6 youth to move into life.

Our R4R Blue Crew is designed to offer a wide array of training options to our members. Beginner to veteran, slow to fast, young to old – we’ve a program for you, in your community, at convenient times/days in almost every possible topic: walking to 5K racing, trail running to cycling, social to competitive. Check out all our training Crews here (https://www.meetup.com/Runnin-for-Rhett-Blue-Crew-Train-for-more-than-yourself/messages/boards/) and come join us. Your membership affords you unlimited access to all and as many Crews as you like plus a baby blue R4R Blue Crew technical t-shirt.
