The NB Delaware Running and Walking Group welcomes runners and walkers to join us each week. This meetup is for anyone looking to get fit, meet new people, and have some fun while enjoying the outdoors. Our group is a mix of walkers, beginner runners, and runners looking to stay in shape, as well as, runners that race competitively. Looking to train for your first 5k or half marathon? We can help you with that too!
Our group is organized by local New Balance Brandywine owner and Store Manager, Jamie Graham. Jamie is a Certified Pedorthist here in Delaware and enjoys staying active whether its walking or jogging.
Join us every Monday from March 17th through October 6th at 6pm for our weekly fun run or walk at the Smith Bridge Parking lot. We will meet here and run to the trail along the Brandywine River in the direction towards Thompsons Bridge and continue to Rockland road and back. For those just starting you may want to run to Thompson's Bridge and turn around (est. 2.5 miles) those that want to run to the end to Rockland rd and back (est. 6.2 miles). We will organize groups based on pace, goals, and ability. Our group will meet every Monday starting the 10th of March and continue till the time changes in October. Depending on the weather the trails may be a little muddy so plan your shoe choice appropriately.
New Balance also sponsors the Healthy Kids Running Series. If you are interested in introducing your child to running contact Jamie Graham for more details. www.healthykidsrunningseries.com.
Please pay attention to the individual meetups for any changes.
Random meetups through the week and weekend will be posted as well.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
