About Bodies Race Company
Started by husband and wife team Brad & Jen McCleary. Brad & Jen would take personal training clients to local races to give them something to train for rather than focusing on the scale. Brad and Jen treated clients like family. They were all about getting people together, building community, and doing something good for others. They were taking so many clients to these local events that one day it was suggested they host their own race.
The rest is history.
In 2011 Brad and Jen hosted their first race and Bodies Race Company was born. The next year it grew to three races. Then three races turned into six races. Six races expanded to nine races and so on. Now Bodies Race Company is looking to grow to 100s of races accross the country, maybe the world! The stage has changed but the mission is still the same – Making a Healthy Impact in Our Communities!
