Welcome to an exciting new day for the running community of Michigan as we are pleased to announce the creation of the RunMichigan Foundation. The nonprofit RunMichigan Foundation was created by the same team that has brought you RunMichigan.com for the past 26 years.
RunMichigan.com opened it’s online doors May of 1996, bringing the runners of Michigan a wealth of information, photos and race coverage never seen before.
This new nonprofit organization will not only help continue the original RunMichigan.com mission of providing support and coverage of Michigan’s best runners and top events, but will work to document and preserve all of the state of Michigan’s rich running history.
With so much history being made each year by so many great road race, track and field, and cross country athletes from the State of Michigan, the staff at RunMichigan.com realized there needs to be a way to make sure that all this great history is preserved. Photos, results, race stories and interviews, along with new never before seen artifacts and historical documents, need to have a permanent, secure home so they aren’t lost forever.
Also, new and exciting projects will look to be created as we look to preserve all elements of Michigan’s running history – from team photos, race stories and much more. So many great running athletes have come from Michigan, including Olympians, Boston Marathon winners and NCAA Champions. The RunMichigan Foundation looks to promote and preserve all of this history.
Not only does The RunMichigan Foundation want to preserve all the great history being made by runners from our state, we know that we need to continue to document this history. We want to continue to cover as many events as possible, especially all the major events where runners of Michigan compete at the highest levels. From high school cross country and track state meets within Michigan, to NCAA or other national level events around the country, RunMichigan wants to be there.
