Bryan Harden is a runner. One look and you see what I mean. He is 6’4′ lean, square jaw, always talking about the next place to run and willing to share it to anyone. Bryan is the owner of ONTHERUN, he was the typical 3 sport athlete (football, basketball, baseball), while he ran for all 3 sports, Bryan did not consider himself a runner. When Bryan went to Texas A&M on an Air Force ROTC Scholarship he began to run and people started to notice. By early spring of his freshman year Bryan was recruited to run club track at A&M and to this day holds the record for 400 meters, 5k and military obstacle course for the coveted Corps of Cadets. After college Bryan continues to run; he’s completed many local 5 & 10K’s, the Disney Half-Marathon, Bridge-to-Bridge, Team Challenge 10 k and the grad daddy of all The Boston Marathon. Bryan was so inspired by the sights, sounds and most importantly the people he ran along side of at Boston, he came home to Modesto and worked on his initial plans for ONTHERUN. This has been a dream to follow his passion and give back to the community that made him Bryan. Bryan is excited to provide the perfect fit for people wishing to live a healthier life starting right now. Bryan says, “drop in, we’ll talk about your goals and life, we’ll fit test you and provide expert advice, I’m sure we’ve got the perfect shoe in-stock for you.” ONTHERUN is Bryan’s dream come true, and he hopes you like it.

Nathan Paterson is a recent graduate of UC Riverside and has relocated back to Modesto where he grew up. Nathan has been running his whole life including many 5 & 10k’s, he’s run the Modesto 1/2 Marathon and paced his Dad at the Modesto Marathon qualifying for Boston. Nathan is our resident go-to guy; he runs, he knows computers (well), he’s excited to be part of ONTHERUN and he wants to give back to his community.

Joining ONTHERUN the week before the store opened, T.J. Castle has utilized his experience in high-end retail to provide customers with the highest level of service. Knowing Bryan from the past and hearing that he wanted to open up ONTHERUN, T.J. raced in and accepted the challenge to widen his horizons in the world of sports. T.J. has always loved sports in general, so to him, running comes with the territory. He has ran in a few 5k’s and was part of the ONTHERUN Tough Mudder team in Tahoe in the sumer of 2012. He’s currently training for his first of what should be many half marathons, and his ability to go out, stay motivated, and run will allow him to share with his clients his personal endeavors. Having worked for big names in the fashion industry such as Macy’s, Gap, and Banana Republic, T.J. is able to use his ability to provide the best one on one service and fuse these skills with his huge passion of sports; Providing you a very charismatic, yet extremely knowledgeable, experience when visiting him.

Colin Daniel is our youngest addition to the team at ONTHERUN. Colin is a junior at Modesto Christian High School where he excels in academics, runs track and cross-country and does everything fast. Colin has worked at a job since he was 7 years old. First working with his grand father working on motorcycles. Always running from his siblings Colin knew he liked to run. This affinity has turned into a love of running, he runs everywhere. Colin may be our youngest teammate, but more than makes up for it by his enthusiasm, attention to detail and his desire to please. Colin plans to work at ONTHERUN and save for college. We hope we can help him do just that.
