Superior Running Co. promotes a welcoming, supportive running community. We are embracing of all paces and all distances. Leading the pack to back-of-the-pack, one mile or 100 miles – you inspire. You inspire us. You inspire yourself, your spouse, your children, your family and friends, and strangers alike. And we, inspire one another. Running provides us with countless opportunities to be unsure of ourselves, and then prove to ourselves that we are indeed capable; and damn, that’s empowering. When supporting others in doing the same, their sense of accomplishment is palpable; it’s inspiring and invigorating, and it brings out the best in us.

We are invested in the running community because it has enriched our lives in ways we never expected. Without the support of others, we acknowledge that our own accomplishments would have never happened. Race directors, volunteers, trail organizations, fellow runners, the list truly goes on and on. We appreciate you and in turn we promote a welcoming, supportive running community. Through coaching, community involvement, and volunteerism, we are committed to not only celebrating our own successes, but also supporting one another and the natural spaces we love to explore.

No need to purchase coaching to be part of our community. If you embrace our mission, we want you on board! You’re always welcome to join us in person for a group run or to volunteer; or, tag us on social media (#superiorrunningco & #greatlakesgrit) and we’ll feature you – let’s promote positivity and support!

In further support of this, we offer discounts on coaching for volunteering. We believe that with all of us pitching in, access will be maintained and protected for all of us to enjoy and our welcoming, supportive community will continue to grow.
