VanOrden Wins 9th U.S. Trail Title at 50k

September 22nd, 2012

When Runners arrived at the start of the USA 50km Trail Running Championships this Saturday they were not certain the race was a go. Smoke from the nearby Pole Creek wildfire had covered the area in the days leading up to the race, forcing the race director to make a literal last minute decision about the fate of the race... Among the elite field was trail ace Tim Van Orden, 44, of Bennington, Vermont. Despite winning the 2011 USA Trail Running Championship Series, Van Orden was nervous about competing in his first ultra marathon (longer than 26.2 miles)... Read FULL POST.

What is the Running Raw Project?

The Running Raw Project is a grand experiment in diet and athletic performance. It was started by Tim VanOrden in November of 2005 with a simple question: Can one be an athlete while eating a 100% raw vegan diet? That curiosity was quickly answered with a resounding YES!

What Tim has discovered could change the world of sport forever.

But why stop there? Why not try to change the world along the way?
This is the mission of the Running Raw Project.


What happens when you combine a raw vegan diet and athletics?
Would this diet give you greater endurance and strength?
Would it allow you to recover faster?
Would it remove age as a factor?
If all of this was possible, would other athletes take note?
Would other athletes consider fruits and veggies over steroids and doping?


To see what's possible. To be what's possible.
To unite people in a global effort to create a better world through sport.
To promote health and ecological stewardship among athletes of all ages and abilities.
To scientifically prove that an organic, plant-based diet, consisting of uncooked, unrefined, and unprocessed whole foods yields the highest performance for the human body.
To get other high level athletes to consider the advantages of this diet.
To get those athletes to endorse and promote the idea of whole food nutrition to the youth of America, who are in desperate need of dietary transformation.


Americans still have not made the connection that Diet equals Health.
• The prevalence of obesity quadrupled in the past 25 years among boys and girls - currently 15% of the U.S. population. In minority youth, this statistic climbs to 20%.
• Type 2 diabetes accounted for 2 to 4 percent of all childhood diabetes before 1992, but skyrocketed to 30 to 50 percent by 2004.
Americans are dependent on harmful drugs and pharmaceuticals, and yet...
In 2006, 1.5 million Americans died from dietary related diseases, at a cost of $800 billion.
Agri-business and food processing account for 60% of US oil consumption.
Conscious eating = reduced oil dependency and a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions.
To dispel the belief that this diet is for non-achievers and non-performers.
