Our Mission

Students Run Philly Style transforms students’ lives through mentorship over miles of long distance running and achievement.

Student Spotlight



“At mile 21, one of my running leaders offered me snacks, words of encouragement, and emotional support. For the first time ever in my running career, I cried during a race. With that, I pushed through the marathon and PR’ed! My 2019 marathon was one of the most emotional races I’ve ever run and I’ll never forget it.”
