The ZAP Fitness Foundation was established to provide post-collegiate distance runners with an ideal environment in which to train for Olympic Teams. Through donations, corporate sponsorship and proceeds from camps and retreats, ZAP provides room, board, health insurance, and travel expenses to a number of America’s elite distance runners.

ZAP Fitness is asking for your support as we look to expand our program and offer our athletes the support they need as they train for the coming World Championship years and ultimately the 2016 Olympics in Rio. Your donation will ensure that ZAP is still here in 2016.

The program at ZAP Fitness and others around the country are working hard to make a difference in American distance running but can only do so with your support. We are asking you, a member of the American Running Community, to invest in the future of American Distance Running.
