About This Activity

You hear it all the time - running is all about putting one foot in front of the other. But for some, it isn't that simple! Join StartLine Racing and Ultimate Stamina Coaching as we host Stride for Spines, benefiting Barrow's Neurological Institute. This event will feature at 5K, 10K, and Kids' Dash (1 mile) and will be held along the running trails at Reach 11 Sports Complex in Phoenix. The event will also serve as the second leg of the Dignity Health Run Series (see details below)!

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Barrow's Neurological Institute Foundation in honor of Cristin Van Driel and Ultimate Stamina Coaching, our race host.  Along with the help of Dr. Porter and the amazing staff at Barrow's, Cristin was able to overcome a major spinal injury that left her temporarily paralyzed and return to competitive racing and coaching.

Can't join us for the run and/or want to help even more.  Every donation is welcome to support the amazing doctors and staff at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center and Barrow's Neurological Institute.  Additional donations can be made here!
