We’re all about running and racing… and we are also about supporting the young runners in our community!

Since 2002 New Basin Blues has sponsored the annual XC Shoe Program to provide running shoes for deserving high school runners. These kids are new to the sport or just don't have the support or encouragement. This is where NBB steps in.

We have people who have many years of running experience from various backgrounds. We want to share this knowledge and experience to promote a love of running for future generations in our community. We also want to show them the trails we run so they can see there is more to running than just around a high school microcosm. By getting the students proper shoes, we not only give them the most important gear in the sport, but we also show that we care and support them.

During this event student athletes are treated to a beautiful trail run with the club and a light breakfast served afterwards. After breakfast, the students are custom fitted into a pair of new running shoes. Your donation pays for new shoes and is tax-deductible. New Basin Blues is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. Please give generously!

We always enjoy seeing our club members interact with these remarkable young runners. It would be our pleasure to have you attend our annual event.
