Mission Statement

Northeast Runners Alliance (NeRA) is an alliance of road and trail runners from around the Northeastern United States.

Our primary mission is to build and connect a community centered around running that encourages engagement and collaboration, stewardship, and responsible use of shared spaces.

Our secondary mission is to foster diversity, inclusion, and access to the sport of running in all forms. Road or trail, recreational or competitive, we believe there is a place for everybody.

We are a 501 (c)3 non-profit.
