About Students Run the Streets

Students Run the Streets was created in 2016 after realizing the need for community based programming in Hampton Roads. We saw a void in youth programs that use fitness to reach students. With our passion for running and community, Students Run the Streets was born.

We believe that running has the power to change lives, and we use running as a tool to reach and connect with our students. We invite you to join us on this journey as we influence lives in our community!


The Mission of Students Run the Streets is to engage, mentor and influence youth ages 11-18 through distance running, while equipping them with the necessary tools to reach their personal best in all aspects of life.
