Join a runner group where everyone knows your name and we Respect Everyone’s Ability Level (hence, Team R.E.A.L.).
We’re thirty-somethings, grandparents, first-time runners, longtime athletes, 10-minute milers, half-marathon winners, beer drinkers, health nuts, barefoot runners, and even a USATF certified coach. Plus, we’re good company and pretty entertaining, too.
This year, we ran Market Square 10K, Hampton Rockfest half- and full-marathon, and countless 5Ks in the Seacoast Road Race series. Next year, we’re aiming to tackle the whole We Run for Beer series, and there have been talks about doing Reach the Beach.
Weekly training runs are free. We meet in the parking lot at 95 Brewery Lane in Portsmouth on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. for shorter, faster workouts and Saturdays at 9 a.m. to work on longer runs.
Training plans with our USATF certified coach based on your goal races are $40. Upon completion of a training plan/goal race, you will be eligible to purchase one of our Team R.E.A.L. tech shirts to show off your success (for $20).
Build up your endurance. Improve your speed. Work on your form. Make a few new friends in the process. We welcome and encourage you to join us!
