Air Up There RC came about in May 2019, when Moe and Brad had moved to Hamilton, Ontario from Toronto and London. Both were used to having a diverse and robust running scene around them. When they came to Hamilton they didn’t find a crew that reflected their social and running values. Both felt there was something missing.
Air Up There… Stay High
We created the Air Up There (an ode to the movies film location-Hamilton) to create more diversity and inclusion within the running world. Myself, a person of colour, was looking for a crew that represented what I believed in-a welcoming place for all runners especially BIPOC folks.
Thus the Air Up There was born. We believe that running can be the vehicle for diversity and completely accessible. No bullshit. We believe in running hard but also remembering that this shit is all for fun.
