Who We Are

We are a faith-driven community dedicated to guiding individuals in effectively preparing for and running marathons according to God’s guidance, relying solely on the direction received from the Holy Spirit.

How We Run With Purpose

How We Run with Purpose

Our aim is to instruct individuals in the art of effectively preparing for and running a Marathon in alignment with God’s will, relying completely on the guidance received from the Holy Spirit. Through our program, participants are not only equipped with the physical training necessary for the marathon journey but are also nurtured spiritually, learning to discern and follow the divine direction in their running endeavors.

We believe that the principles learned in this journey extend far beyond the realm of running. By relying on the wisdom and guidance imparted by the Holy Spirit during their marathon preparation, participants are empowered to apply these teachings to other areas of their lives. These principles become a foundation for decision-making, goal-setting, and overcoming challenges in various aspects of life, fostering a deeper connection with God and a more purposeful existence.
