Next Meetup

Slow/Short Run, 3 mi/4.8 km
Come join us for a fun, social 3-mile-ish run around the Davis Square area! A few important things to know: - This run is shorter and at a more relaxed pace than our other group runs, making it ideal for newer runners, slower runners, and those who just want to take it easy. - Our group includes a wide range of runners so the pace does vary a bit, but we average about 10-minute miles. If you want to go slower or faster than this, you are still welcome, but you may not be running with the group the entire time. (Please note: If your pace is slower than a 12-minute mile or you want to walk parts of the route, this may not be the right running group for you.) - In true DSR fashion we will *always* stop periodically along the route to regroup and wait for all runners to catch up. - We change up the route each week and it may sometimes include a hill or two. If so we will mention this on Meetup ahead of time. - Craving more of a challenge? Come to our 5-6 mile runs on Tuesdays at 7pm! Same place, more miles, faster pace :) This week’s route: We meet in Seven Hills Park, behind the Somerville Theater and T stop.

What we're about

We hold group runs around the Somerville, Medford, Arlington, & Cambridge areas. Our group is judgement free, and very social. Tuesday nights we hold an Intermediate 5-6 mile run, longer runs on Thursdays and over the weekend.

Tuesday nights we head out for food and drinks after the run, all participants are welcome!

Our group has a few simple rules:

1. On all of our runs we will stop occasionally to regroup with our slower members.

2. Please respect everyone's personal space.

3. We don't run with dogs or strollers, if you wish to run with either, this may not be the group for you.

4. We are an inclusive & judgement-free group!

Check out our calendar to see all upcoming meetups, and find Running Safety Guidelines on our website. (

We have many runners on our roster, all of our members have been to a meetup within the last 6 months, or have joined within the last three. Occasionally we will go through our member list and purge inactive members to maintain a current roster. If you were removed from our group, and would like to rejoin, please feel free. Removal from our active list doesn't mean you aren't welcome to come--we would love to have you!

During times of early darkness (fall, winter, early spring), we require every runner to have a headlamp and/or reflective gear.
