2L Coaching to Partner with Running Across Borders to Support Developing Athletes in East Africa


Since its inception in 2004, 2L Coaching Services has sought to bring coaching to athletes through online coaching. We are excited to announce that we will be supporting the charity Running Across Borders, an organization that provides Ethiopian and Kenyan youth with domestic and international competitive opportunities in athletics, education, and employment opportunities supporting them to make a living as professional athletes in the future.
In the horn of Africa, there is no shortage of distance running talent but there is a shortfall of opportunities for young people to tap into their abilities and see if they can financially succeed as professional runners. Therefore, Running Across Borders was founded with the mission of expanding economic opportunities to East African youth through running. At present they do this by providing young aspiring athletes from rural Ethiopia the chance to train, study, and work concurrently at a high altitude camp in Addis Ababa, providing them with equipment, coaching, and travel assistance for athletes to practice and compete.

In addition to a regular financial contribution, 2L Coaching will provide an incentive to any current or past member of our service who makes a financial contribution to Running Across Borders. Contributions of the following amounts will receive the following rewards: $50.
