Vegan Runners Meetup!

The Minnesota Distance Runners Association turns the Metrodome into the place to be twice a week during the dark, cold and icy winter nights! Running is from 5:00-8:00 p.m. each Tuesday and Thursday and it costs $1. 2 1/2 laps around the concourse equals a mile. Enter gate D. You can park free in the upper Dome lot.

Image of Lot D entrance is below. Click to embiggen.You want this one! It's on 5th and 11th. Once you enter the drive, continue to the end and then turn right. Park anywhere in those lots. There will be many other cars in there and you can't miss it! The entrance doors to the Dome are to the left of the drive as pictured. Just follow the other runners. There tends to be a steady stream of folks coming and going.

We will meet at 6pm and shoot for a three mile run. Don’t worry about pace—no vegan will be left behind! We will run only as fast as our slowest runner, or if there are enough of us we can split up into “slow” and “fast” groups. If you would like to run a longer distance, show up early and meet up with us later. If you want to run less, meet us a little bit after 6pm. After our run we will head over to the Triple Rock Social Club for vegan eats and BLINGO!

    Always a fun group! I love hanging out with fellow running herbivores. :D Great, friendly group and any new folks shouldn't feel shy about joining.

    I really enjoy the emphasis on health (Vegan and exercise); and it's a lot of fun. What's great is that you can walk, do a slow jog, or go extreme (great for all fitness levels). Great job organizers! Fun meeting other like minded individuals :)

    I just checked the weather and it seems like Melissa and I will have no problems getting to the dome tomorrow night. Woop! We may need to forgo the post-run dining though to make it home in one piece. See everyone tomorrow night!

    Thanks Melissa. Hoping to see you. But even if you guys can't make, I should be able to get there! Just keep us posted.

    Yup, I'm one of those people coming from St. Paul, so I'm going to have to make the call tomorrow afternoon, too. Ach.

    Michael is right--we won't all be finished running by 6:30 so you could definitely get some running in late. I'll message you my number and have my phone on me in case you can't find us. Another Melissa... at least it will be easy to remember your name! :)

    6:30 is not necessarily too late. The laps are short circles so it wouldn't be hard to join up after the running started. If cell phone numbers were exchanged beforehand with someone, it shouldn't be too hard to find the right group of people. People generally split up into groups running at different speeds. Do you know about how fast you'd like to run or walk (so you could exchange cell numbers with the right person)?

    I do think the group may be full on Melissa's though! lol

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.
