About Us !
~ COACHING ~
Another very important part of our Mission Statement is to provide expert coaching where it is truly desired. We want to promote walking and running as a means of improving life-styles. Running is a great stress reliever; it gives us MORE energy and we can move forward in many other areas of our lives.
Bill Crane is the founder of KRA, and has coached running and walking for the largest endurance training program in the world. Crane was inducted into the Team-In-Training Hall of Fame. He was certified under Dr. J. Daniels who is a contributing writer for Runner's World magazine and is proclaimed as "the world's greatest coach".
Mr. Crane has run over 25 marathons in 10 years... countless half-marathons... and many duathlons and tri-athlons. He qualified for Boston at his 2nd marathon in Chicago, then ran Boston in 1997. One month later he finished the Indy-Mini in the first 500 and took 7th in his age group of nearly 600 males. He took 1st in his age group in the Dublin, Ireland marathon setting his PR, and finished in the overall top 5% in Honolulu's Marathon of 32,000 participants.
Presently, Bill sits on the Ride + Walk Advisory Committee in Kosciusko County, IN. Check out the Website: RideWalk.com
~ Supplements ~
Good athletes, and even the active walker, need to keep themselves healthy with supplements. We have several trusted sources such as well recognized Pharmacists, and Drug & Health Food stores, as well as health systems.
Mary Crane could do wellness consultations at no charge. She has run many 5 & 10k races as well as several half-marathons. She also ran marathons in Chicago; Paris, France and San Diego, California.
KRA Stands behind these statements & belief in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord! Therefore...
"...throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles, and let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us." -The Bible
"Let us Run with perseverance the Race marked out for us..." Hebrews 12

~ Kosciusko Runners' Association was started to provide Events with materials and know-how! If desire, we can time your Event with the Ultra High Density Digital (HDD) "Chip Timing System.
We have a couple of NEW timing possibilities:
> We have the standard Chip on shoe or around ankle...
> We can also now do PC Timing without Computer chips, but with good
accuracy & the same printing of results.
> NEW: We have another Newer Disposable Tag Timing set! These Tags are attached to the backside of Bibs.
Primarily, we service an area within a 200 mile radius of Warsaw, Indiana. However, we have timed events in Ohio, Michigan and Tennessee. We have timed any distance from a 1 mile swim to an Ultra Marathon. Even multiple distances at one event ~ 5k, 10k, half-marathon, marathon and an Ultra ~ all at the same time!
KRA will assist in your race structuring and set up. We are able to help measure courses for USATF certification.
