Streets of Gold 5K Virtual Race

Grant Brown 2006 - 2013

Grant Brown 2006 – 2013

Just like you, Grant Brown loved to run. Two summers ago, Grant was attending a supervised day camp for kids his age where swimming was part of the schedule and the unthinkable happened.

Grant is now running on Streets of Gold and a scholarship for New Covenant School in Arlington, Massachusetts (where he would have been a first-grader) has been established in his name.

The Grant Brown Scholarship is in place to help those students and their families who may be distracted by financial worry to focus more on learning, serving and building integrity.

Virtual 5k this Saturday Continue Reading →

Thank you @maritihart and the great team at Greatist.com!

Runner Sportsmanship

postracefoodfrenzyThe recent display of greed at a Cincinnati road race shouldn’t indict all runners. We have our issues but good sportsmanship regularly prevails.

By Henry Howard

I was appalled to learn of the food looting perpetrated by some of the 15,000 runners in the recent Thanksgiving Day Race in Cincinnati. There seemed to be plenty of energy bars, fruit, drinks and other recovery fuel on hand.

But that wasn’t enough for some of the runners who readily ignored giving thanks for the day, and instead greedily filled their boxes with food. Not only did a local food bank not receive an influx of leftovers, many of the runners were left without snacks after the 10K race.

“There were people jumping in dumpsters to find bigger boxes,” race director Julie Isphording told the Cincinnati Enquirer. “I couldn’t believe it. People brought bags of their own just so they could stuff them full.” Continue Reading →

Runner Academy Apologizes to MTA

You might have come here looking for the post “Runner Academy is Plagiarizing Our Content”. You can find it here.

Matt Johnson has offered the following apology.

I take responsibility for my actions. While I did not steal your content word for word I did structure it too similar. I modeled too much of what you did
and did add a substantial portion of my own spin to it. I could have done
better. Everyone deserves better. I let myself get too caught up in winning
and competition and I made some poor decisions. -Matt Johnson

While the evidence does show that Matt copied some of our content word for word, I am willing to accept this apology, and be done with this whole ordeal.

My hope is that we never have to deal with this again and can get back to helping people reach their running potential.

I appreciate all the support MTA has received over the last two days. You guys are awesome!

Happy Running,

Trevor
