We are a group of runners in our 20's and 30's, with members ranging from beginner runners to those who have been running for years. Nothing like knowing others are waiting for you to make sure you go out and run! We are far from competitive, regardless of pace (we have some very fast runners in the group, but even if you can't run the whole thing, it's ok), and we always welcome new faces!
There are plenty of groups out there for competitive runners but not much for the casual or beginner runner who wants to train for a race (or run for other reasons -- personal goals? Weight Loss? Just because?). If you want to have fun when you're running, and make some great new friends, this is the group for you!
The focus is to get people who are committed to train together and motivate each other, no matter how slow or far you go at first. No need to be intimidated!
We have trained together for races in the past (Cherry Blossom Ten Miler, Army Ten Miler, Rock n Roll Half Marathon, Marine Corps Marathon...) and we have already signed up for quite a few upcoming races: Cherry Blossom Ten Miler, Shamrock Half Marathon, Flying Pigs Marathon, Rock n Roll Half Marathon in VA Beach...). Even if you're not training, join us for the run! All we need is friendly faces to keep going!
Our runs are always by time, not distance, so that we can all begin and end together.
Don't let the term "race" intimidate you -- I've been to many races where people walk, so races, are pretty laid back for those of us in the back of the pack.
The vast majority of the runs will be planned in the Arlington area (trails galore!), but we might venture out to other places too to defeat boredom. Runs will be mostly planned by where there is plenty of parking and/or metro accessible areas.
We usually grab a snack coffee on those weekend morning runs (we try not to meet too early, not to interfere with a night out...), and plan a happy hour about once a month.
Anyone can be an organizer, if you are interested in planning additional runs at times not already listed on the calendar -- just let me know!
Make sure to post a picture so we know who you are!
