We are Runners with a Mission

Still I Run is a community of runners and mental health warriors determined to take control of our physical and mental health while also breaking the stigma surrounding people that live with a mental illness.


Our Mission

Still I Run is the country’s only non-profit running community that works to promote the benefits of running for mental health while also working to defeat the stigma, raise awareness around the topic, and help others get started running for their mental health.

1 in 5
Americans will experience a mental health condition in a given year.

Mental illness is prevalent throughout our society and the COVID-19 pandemic has only made it worse. Chances are that if you don’t have a mental illness, you know someone who does. It's a disease that does not discriminate. It can affect anyone and it cannot be prevented. And yet — there is a ton of stigma around it.


Through various programs we offer, we hope to educate others about running for mental health, raise mental health awareness, provide encouragement to others, and help people experiencing hardship get started in their running journey.
