CCR Matt Robinson speaks at IOC headquarters on “The Role of the CEO of a Running Club in the New Millennium.” (just kidding about the title)

In the words of self-proclaimed Creek Road Runners CEO CRR Matt Robinson, “Citius, altius, fortius.” Or maybe he just said, “Onward and upward.” Who can know for sure with Matt?

Robinson has been at the forefront of global sports initiatives for the University of Delaware. It is in this spirit that the University of Delaware is partnering with the Delaware Sports Commission, whose president is [ahem] CRR Matt Robinson, and the U.S. Olympic Committee to celebrate Olympic Day, recognized annually on June 23 in more than 160 countries to commemorate the birth of the modern games in 1896.

Delaware Olympic Day’s main goals are to promote fitness, fair play, sportsmanship, perseverance, and respect. And to those aspects of sport, all Creek Road Runners join in saying, “Citius, altius, fortius,” or something like that.
