People can face any number of barriers in their attempt to be a runner:

So it is now our goal to eliminate one of them; the cost. Proper running shoes, apparel, race entry fees, and training programs are expensive; as runners we are well aware of this which is why we have created the Not So Normal Run Fund.

The mission of the fund is to eliminate the financial barrier to entry for prospective or current runners. The fund will buy shoes and apparel at Fleet Feet who has generously offered us a 50% discount, cover the cost of race entry fees to any race you choose, and pay for any Fleet Feet Training Program. We are just starting out so we have a few rules that we will tweak as we grow.


  1. Please send a message to Jay including your name, contact information, what you need, and a little about yourself. He will contact you as quickly as possible and set a time talk.
  2. All footwear, apparel, and training programs are bought/paid for through Fleet Feet only.
  3. If you need a race entry fee it can be any race you wish, not just a Not So Normal one.
  4. The fund is available to people of all ages but kids 13 and under will have their needs met first.

If you would like to support the fund please contact Jay to discuss, he LOVES those inquiries. So let’s all come together and get more people running!
