What we're about

(and bike and walk!)

"Generations and community,
running and sharing food together "

** NEW Meetup group **

WELCOME TRAIL RUNNING FRIENDS

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. Occasionally, we meet for easy cross-training activities like biking 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/eating!

Where

• Central Park trails, weekday mornings at 7AM.

• Central Park, with the Blockhouse trail run (https://www.facebook.com/groups/blockhouserunclub/) meet, on Saturdays at 9 am.

• High Line (http://www.thehighline.org/visit) on Tuesdays 7AM and Sundays (most) at 7:30 AM on the urban trail, followed by coffee/eating out at the Chelsea Market!

• Manhattan is the base, but occasionally we venture out onto other trails (e.g., Prospect Park in Brooklyn, South Mountain Reservation in Essex County, Sleepy Hollow), and post other events of the New York area.

Who
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/).

Happy trails!
