Many of us are new to Long Island City, and some are even new to Queens. We've got an awesome neighborhood, great areas to run and there are lots of cool people in our 'hood. It's time to bring all of this together to make it all even better.

Our goal is to build a non-competitive, socially focused community of runners and fitness-focused people in LIC. We'll organize group runs, social outings and other adventures of interest. You can be a veteran ultramarathoner who has completed 30 races in the past month, a workaholic who finds time to run once per year or someone with a keen interest in running and are not sure where to start. You've all come to the right place.

This is your group - let us know when, where and how you want to run. Any and all suggestions are eagerly welcome.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
