Santa Rosa Express is a non-profit, all-volunteer organization that was started in 1977 to encourage young athletes to learn the love of running. It is open to all boys and girls who are 7 and older, up through high school. All levels of ability are welcome.

Runners learn good sportsmanship, a strong work ethic, and self-motivation while receiving training and coaching from a team of dedicated volunteers. Our coaches believe in providing a dynamic environment in which our athletes can develop at a rate designed for each individual.

Running is a great opportunity for young runners to get in shape, try new distances and build self-confidence. The more you put into it, the more you get out of it. It doesn’t take long to feel good and see improvement, but it does take regular practice.


The mission of Santa Rosa Express Youth Running Club is to encourage young athletes to learn and appreciate running in a fun, safe and healthy environment. We strive to proliferate the love of running in the youth of Sonoma County.
