Founded in 2013 by Dr. Barry Fudge, LAP 25 was built on the foundation of scientific knowledge and coaching expertise acquired from decades of experience working with elite endurance athletes. Our name, LAP 25, symbolizes the final lap of a 10,000m race, where victory is often determined. We believe that success begins long before the race, with meticulous planning, determination, and relentless pursuit of excellence. We call the process “Own the Start Line”.
OWN THE START LINE
To Own the Start Line is to stand on the start line of your next race, to feel confident in your preparation, knowing that you have trained smarter, endured pain, and done everything possible to achieve your version of greatness.
To own the start line means to understand what it takes to reach your target. It means being accountable, making your goals concrete and detailed. It means taking consistent and relentless action day after day until the job is done. It means doing it now, not tomorrow. And when it is over, it means enjoying the success of achieving your goals in the knowledge that you were powerful and in control.
At LAP 25, we bring this philosophy to runners like you who share a passion for running and strive to be the best they can be.
