Legend of the Northwest  

Rugged Beauty

Old School Grit

Our mission is to develop and maintain a roster of competitive athletes that qualify for the USOT in the Marathon; while being competitive at other National Championships and prestigious races around the country. We take a holistic approach with our elites, and believe that in order to compete at a national level, it is important to develop not only the physical, but the mental side as well. Our mission is to give support to athletes who already live spartan like lives, in an effort to reach their full potential.  

Be progressive, and have a reason for everything that you do.
