Raleigh Distance Project is made up of six women who are committed to chasing their dreams. These athletes hold a common belief as they strive towards their goals: that the runners within the community will mirror their results. The Raleigh running community is sprinkled with runners of all levels of ability; a run through Raleigh exhibits the child just starting out at a local mile race, the brewery social run club runner, and the Olympic Trials Marathon qualifier. The team members devote time to train together and motivate the community regardless of their commitments to school and full-time jobs, even if that means running at 5 a.m. These athletes have seen the impact of how a positive and zealous mindset can enhance performance. They strive to instill the secret behind their successful running careers in all local runners: joy! They look to build the sport and unify all the city's resources while propelling their aspiring elites to a level beyond what seems possible.

Oiselle is thrilled to partner with the Raleigh Distance Project to support their mission: "helping aspiring elite distance runners reach their goals, creating enthusiasm for the sport and increasing the strength of the running community in Raleigh, the city we love."

Raleigh Distance Project: "Our team has seen what's possible when six women come together to support each other. We're excited to keep chasing big goals and building our community with thousands of women pushing us forward!"
