Our Moms on the Run story is quite special: What started in a park with a group of moms just wanting to run a simple 5K has transformed into a nationally franchised running company with 50 locations in nine states. We have helped transform thousands of women's lives, and in turn, the lives of their families. Welcome to Moms on the Run. If you've been searching for the motivation to get your start as a runner, this program is for you! And if you've been running for years and want additional challenge and motivation, we have advanced training for you, as well.
Watch our story, then find a location near you to join us! We welcome women of all ages and all levels — and, you don't have to be a mom! If you're a bit hesitant to try us, we have a great opportunity for you. Many of our franchises nationwide will be offering a new variety of trial programs or trial classes this month, so check out our locations page to contact the franchise nearest you. If you don't see one, why not contact us about starting up a Moms on the Run in your community?

West Fargo Moms on the Run coach Kayla Hiedeman says her West Fargo group is the reason she is who she is today. "MOTR has been a blessing in my life! These ladies — and running — have gotten me through some of the toughest times of my life and MOTR has been there to celebrate the highlights."
In her nomination, West Fargo owner Eileen Pruis shares, "Kayla's ability to be encouraging and always smiling makes her a great inspiration to those she runs with." That's why Kayla is our most inspiring member for December. Join in on our conversation to find out a little more about Kayla.
