The OE Runners Team is a staple among running groups in Northwest Indiana and this year will mark our 18th season as a team!

The runners on our team always say that it is a life-changing experience. Every dollar that you raise as one of our runners has a direct impact on our friends and neighbors with disabilities in Northwest Indiana.

How Does It Work?

Have you ever been interested in running a half-marathon or marathon? You’ve come to the right place! Joining the OE Runners team is life-changing for you and the OE client you run for. Sign up today to run the Valpo Half Marathon on Sunday, October 23, 2016, the Indianapolis Monumental Marathon or Half Marathon on Saturday, November 5, 2016 OR BOTH! After reading the important information below, you can click HERE to sign up today.

As an OE Runner, you have the option of two types of training methods: Galloway and Higdon. The type of method you choose will depend on your athletic experience and what you decide feels like the right fit. We have three trainers who are available to answer any questions you might have, and are eager to share information about their method of training. We encourage you to take the time to learn about each method before deciding.

The OE Runners Galloway Training season has begun! They will be meeting at the OE Main parking lot (2801 Evans. Ave, Valparaiso) at 8 a.m. on Saturdays. Higdon Training starts in July.
