To bring running and fitness sports to everyone in the community irrespective of their backgrounds and to help each individual reach their potential in the truest sense. To create a new learning space that breaks the notion of a restricted area, physically or mentally, where anyone should learn.
Environment and Communities
All decisions and actions as a community will be made ensuring least or zero impact to the environment, constantly re-evaluating and improving our processes and systems.
We would strive to make ourselves better every time and consider it as disrespect to our members if we can't provide the same or better quality of experience.
Team and management
Our approach to building our team will be to find people who like what we do and are passionate about their interests. We would request members, who believe in values of the community, to join us and would strive to represent cultural, ethnic and gender diversity in the team.
"We don't exist to make a profit and a living. We make a profit and a living in order to exist”. Making a profit will be seen in perspective of making the community sustainable and providing a good quality of life for the members of our community.
Philanthropy will not be seen as an entity distinct from the Values, Functioning and Philosophy of the community. In every effort we are involved with, we will try and strive towards a more equal and just society.
Communication and transparency
We will maintain complete transparency within the team on the finances and functioning. We will follow an open door system where any member of the community can walk in and voice their opinion, complaint or suggestion without fear of being discriminated.

I joined Runner's High ten years ago and have been hooked since. RH has introduced me to a wonderful set of coaches and runners. Their training is very scientific and constantly improving. Everybody from a 10 k beginner to an ultra-runner is made to feel special. RH has helped me develop physical and mental fitness and maintain it all these years. Thanks RH!

Runner's High as a community shows enthusiasm and sincerity to a
cause they support. There have been many areas where RH has
gotten involved at Ananya –creating awareness about Ananya, fund
raising, finding volunteers to teach and mentor children,
networking with other NGOs, providing opportunities for the
children to interact with peers from other schools and to
participate in various events.
Children have become eager to stay fit and there is marked improvement in the health and stamina of the children. Long distance running has taught endurance, dedication and determination. It has played a major role in helping them cope with violence and abuse, and stay away from addictions and distractions that could have derailed their lives.
Ananya Trust, Partner Organization
When Santhosh uncle came to Ananya School to train the children, I was not keen initially as we had to wake up early run three days a week. But my friends started talking about it, I got interested and started running with them. Later I got to know more about RH and started running with other RH runners regularly. What I love about RH is that the whole community is like one family. It has greatly helped me get fit, run faster and motivated me in my studies and given me an opportunity to continue to meet my school friends. It has also helped me learn how to lead life independently. I really feel happy to be a part of this community.

I have been with RH for the last five years now. I have been training for half marathons for the last few years. RH to me is new life, new beginnings and lots of new learnings. And it is a family I will run to smile in health and in sickness. It is a group full of positivity. We as a group are all one unit. And will always have each other. It is one group full of positivity.

I have been running for six years with RH after my husband Manoj introduced me (he’s been with RH since 2011). Trained for 10 km, 21 hm and now do one full marathon a year. Thanks to RH I have found my fitness mantra. With running, I have been able to inspire those around me which gives me a profound sense of achievement. What is unique about RH is it lets you choose how involved you want to get, gently pushing to goals bigger than oneself!
