What we're about

"Generations and community, exercising and sharing food together!"

Updated: Nov. 30, 2020

NEWS: PRIVATE GROUP is FOR FAMILY, FRIENDS, AND CURRENT MEMBERS ONLY, at this time. The group is currently NOT accepting new members due to COVID-19 pandemic. Thank you for your interest. In the future, we will meet to workout (trail run/walk/hike/bike) outside and eat together again in-person, when it is safe to do so!

CURRENT OFFERINGS FOR MEMBERS AND FRIENDS: VIRTUAL workouts, yoga, and meditation to practice from the safety of your own home/space, with support and encouragement for your solo/household's outdoor pursuits. We will also meet afterward for a quick tea/coffee break for accountability, consistency, and camaraderie. More events TBA depending on interest!

PURPOSE: To stay healthy throughout the Holidays and pandemic, while doing our civic duty to keep our communities safe and well!



We’re a small, casual neighborhood group created for friends and family. We do fun and easy runs and brisk walks on dirt trails, grass, snow, and rocks -- and scenic places such as the High Line. We also meet for all-levels cross-training activities like biking, meditation or yoga. Join us to explore the natural beauty and foods of NY. We typically go out for post-exercise coffee, snacks or brunch (optional). Guests of all running abilities, including run-walkers, are always welcome to join for the running/walking/eating!

Group limit: 50 members

We are a small, volunteer-lead, private group, started by a run-walker and friends. We invite friends and family who share that same passion for the trails and food to run with us on a monthly/regular basis. All paces, including experienced trail runners and runners training for their first trail races, are welcome. Please be comfortable running or brisk run-walking at least six miles on trail.

We invite new members and visitors to NYC to drop-in and attend meets for a two-week trial. More info (https://www.meetup.com/Eat-and-Run/pages/22682282/Requirements_and_Disclaimer/).




Please note: If you notice few RSVPs, not to worry. We may be a small group, but we still have dedication, enjoy running and plan to be at every meet! (Any meet changes will be posted.)

Private group. Capacity: 50 members (https://www.meetup.com/pricing/) (max.) This group's free events details and membership are available only to members for privacy and safety. Powered by: EAR volunteers. Copyright Eat and Run, for all EAR content.
