We invited a writer from Twin Cities Moms Blog to one of our classes. It was a cold, rainy spring Minnesota day — not exactly the best day for the first class of spring season. Billing herself as the "Only-Runs-On-The-Playground Lady," Maureen was a bit nervous and excited. But she was about to learn what makes Moms on the Run so different from other running groups.
"The accountability and the energy that came with the other moms at Moms on the Run was just what I needed to know that I could actually learn to run," Maureen writes. "I left that class not only with a boost of long lost confidence, but I also left the class feeling the need to return."

Moms on the Run was just named in Entrepreneur Magazine's list of 'Top 100 Franchises For Less Than $50,000.' The list features the top 100 franchises that can be started for less than $50k, ranked on the scores they received in the 2019 Franchise 500. Moms on the Run is proud to receive this recognition for our low investment business opportunity.
Based in the Minneapolis/St. Paul area, Moms on the Run began offering franchises in 2012 and just signed its 50th franchise in Louisiana. With the recent addition of new locations in Texas and Colorado, Moms on the Run is located in nine states. "The geographical expansion of our program is paramount to our mission," says Karissa Johnson, Founder & CEO. "We look forward to inspiring and transforming more women's live, as well as entire communities, with fitness, fun and friendship."
Johnson says the business opportunity is truly unique due to both the low investment risk and the high amount of flexibility provided to franchise owners. "Whether a mom is looking for a hobby coaching a few hours a week or a much larger opportunity overseeing multiple locations with a coaching staff, we have the resources in place to help support women who are self-motivated and serious about growing a business." For more information about our part-time opportunity for women, please see our franchise site.
