PIONEERS Run Crew was founded by Sidney in April 2017 after he grew frustrated with the lack of diversity in the Boston running community. After years of running, pacing and coaching runners throughout the city, Sid figured if he couldn’t get friends and family to meet him Downtown, in the Back Bay or in Cambridge for a run, it was time to bring running to his neighborhood of Dorchester.

PIONEERS Run Crew is a running team that meets twice a week in two different Boston neighborhoods: Savin Hill and Fields Corner. Unlike other running clubs in Boston where speed and skill is the top priority, we’ve created a diverse and welcoming running community where running is just one part of the experience. PIONEERS is a lifestyle. We explore our city through running and inspire our community to be more health conscious. We own our streets, we motivate our youth, we embrace our culture and most importantly we have FUN. We create training plans and send weekly emails. We train together, race together, clean our neighborhood together and celebrate together.
