Our Initiatives

TCM’s Run Curious Series is free and open to anyone. Our goal is to make running accessible to all and provide new runners a solid foundation to start their journey.  

Development and Education

Our goal is to seek and build relationships with experts, community leaders and existing run clubs to lead programming and community unity. 

Social Programs

From Shakeout Runs to Marathon training, we will provide race training and education for runners of all backgrounds.
