Friends of CPAR

CentralPARunner was founded in the fall of 2018 with the mission to promote the sports of cross country (XC) and track and field in Central Pennsylvania. As the site has grown, so too has the time commitment and cost associated with running it. These sponsors have graciously stepped up in support of this mission. Their financial support helps to keep Results, Team Rankings, and Runner(s) of the Week features free for all visitors. Their support also keeps current subscription rates at a low cost.

All of these supporters are avid fans of the sport. Please show your appreciation by doing business with them!!

Tim Steel is a long-time follower but new friend of CPAR.  Tim’s personal training journey began nearly 20 years and countless certifications and books ago.  Tim is a West York graduate (1999) and in the past two decades he has honed his craft and fallen in love with training runners.  He has elevated dozens of young athletes to Division 1 and 2 athletic opportunities, and has also had the joy of getting countless injured runners back on the track or course.  Tim is wrapping up his 2nd Masters Degree (in Kinesiology) this Fall with a thesis on the role of strengthening the hip flexor in speed development for runners.  He is the owner of YorkFit, a husband and father to three young children.
