What is Let Me Run?

Let Me Run inspires 4th -8th grade boys through the power of running to be courageous enough to be themselves, to build healthy relationships, and to live an active lifestyle. 

Using running as the vehicle to inspire, teach, and reach boys, Let Me Run's comprehensive curriculum breaks down destructive male stereotypes that often stand in the way of positive futures for boys. Twice per week for seven weeks, trained coaches guide their Teams through the program, designed to amplify confidence, self-expression, and respect for others. Each fall and spring season culminates in a 5k race that celebrates the boys' emotional, social, and physical growth.

Thrive operates the only Montana counsel of Let Me Run, a national organization with over 49 Teams across the country.
