Cooper Court Running Club
Cooper Court Running Club is a running program developed in 2019 for guests staying at Interfaith. This group was inspired by the documentary, Skid Row Marathon, where a federal judge from LA starts a club for a shelter in Skid Row. What happens once they find the gift of running is remarkable. We want to bring that gift to our population so we have created The Cooper Court Running Club right here in Boise, ID.
Here’s how it works. Our guests signed up to start training in April with a group of mentor runners developed through our partnership with Boise Area Runners – The BAR. CCRC offers training runs 4 days a week – Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday – with the ultimate goal of being fit enough to compete in St Luke’s FitOne in September. Eric Stride, the Executive Director of Fit One will be offering scholarships to our participants to be a part of this amazing event.
