The mission of YouTooCanRun is :
1. To Promote Running for Good Health.
YouTooCanRun is aimed at the recreational runner, who has a vocation elsewhere, but pursues a passion of running as a recreational activity. The recreational runner does not pursue this passion for prize money or rewards though snagging a Personal Best is a nice bonus.
By Promote we intend to carry out various initiatives to further the cause of recreational running and to encourage more and more non-runners to take up running as an desirable activity.
The purpose of doing this is to promote Good Health of the recreational runners. Health is distinguished from fitness. For examnple a body builder can be fit but unhealthy since his Lipids are high. Besides Good Health, as defined by various medical parameters, we include a holistic definition to include the practice of mental health and clean lifestyle
2. Going forward
The action plans and various initiatives that YouTooCanRun can pursue is still developing and various opportunities are being identified. However we are clear that we will not do some of the following as part of our mission.
– We will not own either directly or indirectly any running events.- We will not take up training activities.
YouTooCanRun’s philosophy will be to align itself with the existing players in the country and act as their collaborators and facilitators rather than competitors. To that extent YouTooCanRun will further facilitate the eco-system of recreational running in the country.
