I probably would have been another “couch potato” just sleeping around and doing nothing interesting with my life.

There are kids here who never thought they could run a mile. … RBO has given my two kids a sense of accomplishment that they can do hard things. And they do it because we all do it together.
— Brittany Walker Pettigrew, RBO mom

Many Thanks to our sponsors who are providing RBO practice snacks

Another way to fundraise for RBO

Do you shop Amazon?

if you do… you can select RBO as the charity to reward when you shop via

(Here is the deal: Amazon donates 0.5% of the price of your eligible AmazonSmile purchases to the charitable organization of your choice. AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know. Same products, same prices, same service.).

Thanks for considering….

I pushed my boundaries by doing things other teenagers around me weren’t doing

A quick snapshot of RBO Spring 18 season!

If you participated in the Spring 18 season, this will bring sweet memories. If you did not, you'll wish you had been there and we hope you'll join us for the Fall 2018 training and races.

I love how RBO, unlike many other running groups, has a warm, supportive, and encouraging atmosphere. It makes a difference when nobody is left behind, no matter how slow one is

RBO creates a great sense of community by bringing everyone together for running. Everyone is here rain or shine, and we all celebrate together when we finish
— Susan Fuentes, RBO mom & Volunteer



To build a tolerant, healthy and prosperous community by empowering students, parents and volunteers, creating new relationships, trust, and self-esteem through the discipline and rigors of a structured running program.


My son likes to exercise with his friends around, and my daughter is shy, but running with others opens her up. They love RBO
