One of the greatest things about running is it's ability for athletes of all ages and abilities to enjoy the same event.

Not many sports are equally accessible to world class athletes as well as first timers, in the exact same race! That's rare and special.
Here are the events Sole Experience will be participating in, volunteering, coaching and or cheering. Join us!

Whatever the goal and from wherever you are starting we have a way to help you get there. Find Your Fit here.



One day my husband and I were discussing how, when we were younger, we wanted to be sprinters but never got the chance. So we decided why not give it a try now? We heard about Sole Experience Running Company through several friends of ours and decided to contact Eric. He got back to us right away and was enthusiastic about helping us reach our goal. Eric is very supportive, personable and always has a smile on his face. We wanted to learn all the technical aspects of the sport and he does an excellent job breaking down the mechanics of sprinting into easily achievable exercises. It is clear that Eric lives and breathes running! With Eric's encouragement and guidance, I ran my first 100 m race after just a few lessons. Eric's coaching enabled me to put my nervousness aside and run for my own enjoyment. Now, every week my husband and I look forward to hitting the track together and are thankful to have Eric help us make sprinting our Sole Experience!
