Mission

Anchored Elite is a distance running project focused on developing runners to compete at the highest stages in the United States and beyond. We also want to use our elite running platform to have a positive impact in our local communities through service and project initiatives. 

 

Behind the Name 'Anchored Elite'

The word anchor means, "a person or thing that provides strength and support." All of us in the Anchored Elite group are completely about supporting one another and doing this sport together. An anchor in track is the final leg of a relay who the rest of the team trusts in to finish the race and finish well. We want to focus on relying on one another and be a strong community and team. There is more joy in doing things together and for one another! 

We are a Christian based group and took the word anchor from Hebrews 6:19 where Paul writes about God as our hope, it says, "We have this as a sure and steadfast anchor of the soul." 

 

Janji & Anchored Elite

Anchored Elite is in partnership with the wonderful company of Janji!

Janji is a three year old company based out of Boston, MA that makes high quality running apparel to help bring the community together and help provide clean water for those in the world who need it. With their slogan of ‘Run For Another’ they focus on more than themselves which is what our group loves about them. 

This is what Janji does:

"Through each purchase of Janji's distinctive running apparel, a portion of proceeds funds organizations that are alleviating the worst problems related to water. By funding solutions and raising awareness through our apparel, Janji wants to create a nation of runners that run for another and eliminate the global water crisis.”
