Our mission is simple: Strengthen your Body, Strengthen your Soul.
Here’s the story of how it came to be:
We are three moms who love walking for exercise. In 2009 we decided to train for the Columbus Half Marathon. Our team walks took place on Saturday mornings and we often talked about how wonderful it was to take time for ourselves. Each week we prayed a rosary together and as our devotion to the Blessed Mother grew our hearts became filled with peace and we felt a closer connection to our Lord. We began to fully appreciate and understand the phrase “To Jesus through Mary”. With increased endurance and enriched faith we completed the Columbus Half Marathon and called ourselves “Mamas Movin’ With Mary”.
It is now our goal to inspire others to take time for themselves and “Get Movin’ With Mary”.
Run the Race Club was founded by Rachel Muha in memory of her son, Brian Muha, a Franciscan University of Steubenville student who was murdered in May of 1999. Brian was a devout Catholic with a strong devotion to our Blessed Mother.
Run The Race Club gathers children together on the west side of Columbus for free after-school and Saturday programs. They offer the children stories, crafts, games, sports, tutoring and snacks, helping them develop academically, physically, morally and spiritually so that, through hard work, prayer and determination, they make a difference in their own lives, the lives of their families and then, in the world.
