FREE "Learn to Run With SDR" Beginners Clinic and SDR Intro: Balboa Park Edition

Are you a true beginner walker/walk-runner who is aspiring to get into running to become healthier, fitter and maybe even to run your first 5K race?  Or if you are getting back into the sport after a long break?  Or, did you just find out about San Diego Running - SDR group and would like to try us out but are not sure which event to make your first?

Come and see us!  Introduce yourself, ask lots of questions, complete an easy workout!  Get a taste of what it's like to train in our supportive and welcoming group environment where you get to make new friends, share common fitness goals and celebrate your successes!

The training is FREE, EASY, FUN and FLEXIBLE! The workouts last just 30 minutes and we encourage you to complete each one at your own pace. There are no distance or speed requirements: if you can walk 30 minutes at any speed, that works for us!

You can join us on any day we have a clinic and complete any workout you choose (please see ** Important details ** below). Or, if you're following another training program, do your training with us!  There is no pressure, so don't be shy and come on by! Feel free to bring a friend to make the workout even more fun for yourself!

If you are an accomplished runner, great! Please tell your friends and family about this clinic! Also, we are looking for volunteers to help us, please let Marat know!

We will WALK, and we will RUN and we will HAVE A LOT OF FUN!!! :)

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.

Henry, started Reno Motorcycle Riders
