JRN Store and Memberships

Better late than never. We're finally opening JRN's online store on Teepublic. Choose from eight different JRN logo designs in custom colors of t-shirts, hoodies, mugs, notebooks, stickers and more.

Another way you can help support JRN is through a membership. JRN has always been ad-free. For the last year or so we've been using Buy Me a Coffee and have been grateful for the support people have shown for the articles they've liked. We're expanding that with a new membership feature. With a membership you'll get first look at some feature content, hopefully some exclusive content, and a thank you gift from the store.

Thanks as always, especially these days. Stay safe, and here's to the day when we're all back running, racing, and doing what we love, in Japan and everywhere else.

Team practice has been suspended since Apr. 6 due to the coronavirus crisis, and since then it has been up to members to run and do strength training on their own.

Thirty athletes, about a third of the team roster, attended the May 20 session at Kawata Sports Park Field in Kofu.
