*New Location* Wed. Night Runs for New, Slow, or Casual Runners

The Milwaukee Running Group (MRG) is introducing a few runs per week geared towards new, slower, or casual runners. All runners are welcome at any MRG event, but these runs will ensure you'll have a running partner at your pace.

We will headout from the parking lot of South Shore Park Pavilion for a jog with the group. Then we'll hang out at the park. This event corresponds with an existing MRG run that also ends here, so we'll all be able to meet and mingle after our runs.  Feel free to bring beer, a snack, and a blanklet or chair to relax afterwards!

Generally, we'll run 2-5 miles at paces from 9:30 - 12:00 minute miles. Post your anticipated distance/pace when you sign up!

    Hey turtles! Hope to see you all after the run for a few beverages... speaking of which, if anyone is interested in bringing some to share, it would be much appreciated!

    Just a quick question to the experts - I heard there is a heat wave expected until Thursday. I have never run in a 90 degree weather. I usually run in the evening when it cooks down into the 60s, but looks like tomorrow will be rather hot! Any thoughts?

      While I am by no means an "expert" my plan for tomorrow is to decrease my distance and speed.

      Also, I try to drink extra water throughout the day before a run in the heat, then bring water to drink right when I'm done. See you tomorrow!

    Jennifer- There seems to be another run at 6:00 pm. Is this part of the same group? Do we have beer afterwards?

      I'm glad to see you joined the group Balaji :). I'll bring some extra coconut water Wednesday.

      Haha! Thanks! Don't think the beer would mix well with coconut water though! Lol ;)
