Specially designed to run together with your son, age 4 & up. In 9 weeks (or sooner!) you'll both be ready to run in a 5k road race together. But the memories you'll make will last forever.

This is where it starts. You & him. Best. Friends. Ever.

So you know that a terrific way to reconnect with your son is to spend quality one-on-one time together, but you’re facing one or more of the following problems:

Potential problems

  • You can’t think of great activities to try each week
  • You don’t have a big budget to buy equipment, or fishing licenses, or season tickets, etc.
  • Your schedule prevents you from traveling very far on a routine basis for your outings

I get it- and I don’t want any father-son relationship to suffer or stagnate because of these common obstacles from modern life. That’s why I feel a habit of running together is so powerful! Think about it:


  • Predictable, ongoing activity makes for a stable environment that will facilitate your conversations (we call them #Runversations)
  • Completely free sport that amateurs and pros alike have been enjoying for millennia! All you need are a good pair of sneakers and some active wear.
  • You can run practically anywhere, if you take proper road precautions, and you can usually find some public trails or other recreation areas that are completely traffic-free.

Bonus benefits

  • By working toward the common goal of training for a 5k road race, popular in hometowns all over the world, you can experience a sense of accomplishment together when you cross that finish line!
  • Great way to develop a heart-healthy fitness lifestyle at any age!
  • Combining full-sensory outdoor, active experiences while having conversations together can improve memory retention of the conversation dramatically!
