Core Values


Our core values serve as a permanent underpinning to guide members of the NorCal Distance Project. Rather than aspirational qualities, these concepts represent shared traits, identified through self-examination and subject to broad application.


Inspirational presence.


Relentless and competitive throughout our pursuit.


Credible in word and deed.


Humble, win or lose.​​​

              About the logo


The mountain and trees set the backdrop for Northern California's beautiful scenery while the track winding to the Sierras symbolizes dedication to a journey. The lane lines and wings help tie this theme to the sport of track and field. The addition of the logo's accent color, Old Glory Red, features the same color used in both the California and American flags, a testament to both where we come from and the pride we take in being able to represent our great state and the USA on an international level.

Mission & Vision
