I work for a startup called Swifto, a platform for solving last minute problems by people nearby.
Our service is specially useful for those of us who love to run. The concept is very simple. If you need someone to buy and bring you something, to help you organize an event, or to do all sorts of errands for you when you don't have the time, you can post your request on Swifto and we will find someone close to you to do it for you, very fast. By having other people to help you with your ordinary tasks, you will find yourself with a lot more free time to your hobbies.
We are runners of all paces and from various NYC running clubs including the New York Road Runners and more. We are beginners, intermediate, and even some more marathoners. We run for fun, we run to loose weight, we run to deal with stress, we run to improve our fitness, we run to improve our lives! Come join us for friendly casual group runs through out the week. Lets train for something! New to NYC, we will also educate you on the different events and running clubs NYC has to offer. The group's primary purpose and vision is to allow runners of all endurance levels, paces, distances and months or years of running experience to run together in a non-competitive atmosphere and to get to know each other through a variety of social activities. Runs will be scheduled all throughout the week as well as weekends at various locations (both morning and evening) . Each run is open to any runner regardless of experience. It is highly suggested that you review the description of the run and determine whether or not it is right for you. Each run leader/organizer is experienced with the courses and can alter the course pending who is out there and what each runner is interested in. If you wish to join a run, please state in your RSVP the distance and pace that you project you might be interested in. This will allow the organizer to get feedback from the interested runners. Come out, enjoy yourself, make new friends and get in great shape while exploring the sites around town!!
