“Success comes from doing one thing well, and then another, being sure to give God the glory along the way.” – Jim Ryun

50 years ago this past June, a young man named Jim Ryun from Wichita, Kansas burst into the American consciousness by becoming the first high school boy to run a mile in under 4 minutes- and he has never left it.

Jim’s journey from a rejected church league baseball player to seven World Records, an Olympic Silver Medal in the 1500m, the cover of every publication in America and eventually to the U.S Congress, captivated America and transcended his sport.

You are invited to hear Jim speak this Saturday, July 26th, at 10:30 AM at our Cherry Creek location and hear Jim’s incredible life story.

There will also be:

  • Giveaways
  • Book Signings
  • Running Clinic
