Leveraging Running Culture to unite diverse communities

Read More

What's good?! My name is Sidney Baptista and I am on a mission to bring running to everyBODY!

What started as a goal to reach communities of color and people in low income neighborhoods, has become a mission to unite diverse communities through the sport of running.

"Running is a powerful connector and I believe we can use our sport to elevate voices, create community, and champion change."

My experience in running started in high-school where I broke school records in the 100m (10.8) and 200m (22.7) meter races and took our team to the 2005 Penn Relays to compete in the 4x400M relay race. I remember sitting at an all-school assembly and being congratulated by the Athletic Director as "the fastest man in Williston history."

Fun fact: 200m Olympic Bronze Medalist Gabby Thomas and I went to the same high-school, albeit 10 years apart. We had some of the same track coaches. And yes, she's the homie!

I started distance running in 2014 with Nike Run Club, in part to help manage the stress and moments of self-doubt I was feeling after quitting a comfortable career at PricewaterhouseCoopers to chase my dreams of creating a music festival. High-school, College, PwC, there was always a path. And suddenly there wasn’t.

The early days were hard but I got competitive. Coming from a sprinting background, I could not comprehend why anyone would run more than 1 lap on a track!
