Founder’s Vision:

Mark Kennedy, founder of None to Run and a Certified Distance Running Coach, reflects on the journey and looks ahead: “Four years ago, we embarked on a mission to make running more accessible and enjoyable for those looking to access its joys and benefits. As we celebrate this milestone, our commitment to supporting new runners throughout their running journey continues to guide us.”

What App Subscribers Are Saying:

“After lots of false starts, trying many other apps/programs, and even hiring a coach (without success), I’d given up hope of running. I’m so grateful to have stumbled across None to Run. For the first time, I feel capable and have actually been looking forward to my walk/runs. I absolutely recommend this app — uncomplicated, affordable, convenient, and totally doable.”

“Using N2R to get me back to distance running after back to back surgeries (herniated disc and then ACL reconstruction 7 months later). I’ve taken it slowly, repeating a few weeks here and there, but feeling great. N2R uses a realistic progression format that is actually attainable, unlike any other “start running” program I’ve tried. I’m confident I will be able to get back to 5k and then 10k with no issues.”

Looking Ahead:

Stepping into their fifth year, None to Run is doubling down on helping even more people get started and experience the joy of running with a planned rollout of new app features, deeper community engagement and impactful partnerships that empower beginner runners through their journey as runners.
