“Sole Train is about believing in yourself and never giving up. I learned that running isn’t about winning; it’s about trying your best and always following your dreams.” – Julie T., youth participant

Sole Train: Boston Runs Together

Sole Train: Boston Runs Together is a community-building and mentoring program that uses running as a vehicle for setting and achieving seemingly impossible goals. As a supportive community of caring adults and peers, Sole Train champions young people as they realize their capacity for greatness.

From its first iteration in 2009, Sole Train has expanded from a 16-person program to a 20-site program with over 250 Young Soles (youth participants) and over 100 Old Soles (adult participants) at Boston area public schools. Sole Train teams practice on-site twice a week and come together for community building events and races throughout the year, leading up to Sole Train’s culminating goal race: Boston’s Run to Remember, a five-mile race or half marathon.

We are always looking for dedicated volunteers to join Sole Train or support our Sole Train 5K. To learn more, visit Volunteer Opportunities.
