    Our Mission

    Teens Run DC empowers underserved youth to envision and work towards the achievement of personal goals through a youth mentoring and distance running program.

    During the year, students train alongside teachers and individual mentors who challenge and guide these youth to develop greater responsibility, discipline, perseverance, and goal-setting skills as they train for progressively longer distance races. They meet with teachers twice weekly at their home schools and on weekends as a larger community with their individual mentors. Mentors and mentees have regular contact throughout the week, and at least once monthly outside of practice for more social activities.

    “We want our youth to recognize that who they are is worth valuing.”

    Between teachers and mentors who serve as strong, positive role models, and peers working towards similar goals, Teens Run DC creates a thoughtful and supportive community fostering a sense of belonging for all participants, making the journey easier and more fun – whether training for a 5K race or a half marathon, attempting to lose 5 pounds or trying to find a healthier lifestyle.
