Sole Train, a program of Trinity Boston Connects, is a free community-building and mentoring program that uses running as a vehicle for setting and achieving seemingly impossible goals. As a supportive community of caring adults and peers, Sole Train champions young people as they realize their capacity for greatness. Students (Young Soles), grades 5-8, and adult volunteers (Old Soles) at Boston area public schools and community centers practice at their site 1-2 times a week and participate in community building events and races, leading up to Sole Train’s culminating goal: Boston’s Run to Remember, a 5 mile or half marathon race, that takes place Memorial Day Weekend.We are a diverse, non-competitive, and inclusive running community. Running experience is not required. All are welcome.
