The Milwaukee Running Group - OMG offers daily runs and weekly social events for anyone who runs. People join OMG to meet other runners and make new friends.  We welcomes all ages and abilities.  We share a love of running, and we enjoy chatting while we run.  (Leave your headphones at home.)

Slow and Beginner Runners:  third of our group consider themselves slow or beginner. The most common hesitation voiced by this large group of runners is "I didn't think there would be anyone my speed to run with." Then they came to their first run and discovered they were not alone! Paces for this group range from 9:30 - 14:00 minutes per mile. (FYI, walking is about 16 minutes / mile.)

Average Runners: About half of our group. Paces range from 7:30 - 9:30 minutes per mile.  

Fast Runners: A number of active members run sub 3 hour marathons. More still run under 3:30. If you run with them you'll be in good company and generally out in front.  Please wait for us at the end, or better yet, run an extra mile. :)

Public Website: 

Facebook: We host two Facebook Pages, one is private for Active Members  (but you can join if you promise to not promote ), and a Public Facebook Page with general informational. Here are the links.

Schedule: We run outside all year in all weather, mostly on the sidewalks and paths near the lake. On Sundays we run trails at Lapham Peak State Park.  On Tuesdays in the summer we do track/speed/hill workouts at Shorewood High School and Atwater Beach Park.

Social: On Mondays we go out to eat after our run.  Destinations differ each week. (More details on our website.) We also plan monthly social events like parties, picnics, Packer games, campouts, trips to races in far away places, brewery tours, movie nights, and more.  Check the calendar on Meetup to see what's up this month. 

Membership:  Dues are $5 per year.  Please send payment via Paypal, Venmo, or to, or pay one of the organizers at your next event. Dues cover fees, and remaining funds are used for outings and activities throughout the year. 

We hope you find a run that fits your schedule and we look forward to meeting you soon!
