The Milwaukee Running Group - OMG offers daily runs and weekly social events, and is the most active running club in Wisconsin. In 2016 we held over 1,000 runs or activities. All ages and abilities are welcome. People join OMG to meet others who share an interest in staying fit and making new friends in a fun, safe, comfortable, supportive environment. (We encourage new members to leave their headphones at home.)

Membership:  We offer a one month trial membership for free, but you can pay the $5 per year dues at anytime. Please send payment via Paypal, Venmo, or to mke.run.group@gmail.com, or give a fiver to one of the organizers at your next visit. Dues cover Meetup.com fees, and remaining funds are used for outings and activities throughout the year. 

Slow and Beginner Runners:  third of our group consider themselves "slow" or "beginner" and they almost always tell us with surprise after their first run "I didn't think there would be anyone my speed to run with!" Paces for this group range from 9:30 - 14:00 minutes per mile. (FYI, walking is about 16:00 minutes / mile.)

Average Runners: About half of our group. Paces range from 7:30 - 9:30 minutes per mile.  

Fast Runners: A number of members can run sub 3:00 marathons. If you run at this pace you'll also find good company and will generally out in front on our group runs.  Please wait for us at the end, or maybe run an extra mile. :)

Public Website:  www.Milwaukee-Running-Group.com 

Facebook: We host two Facebook Pages, one is private for Active Members  (but you can join if you promise to not promote races and gear), and a Public Facebook Page with general informational. Here are the links.

Schedule: We run outside all year in all weather, mostly on the sidewalks and paths near Lake Michigan. On Sundays we join GTRoGM to run trails at Lapham Peak State Park.  On Tuesdays in the summer we do track/speed/hill workouts at Shorewood High School and Atwater Beach Park.  On Tuesdays in the winter we offer plyometrics and yoga classes. 

Social: On Mondays we go out to eat after our run.  Destinations differ each week. (More details on our website.) We also plan monthly social events like parties, picnics, Packer games, campouts, trips to races in far away places, brewery tours, movie nights, and more.  Check the calendar on Meetup to see what's up this month. 

We hope you find a run that fits your schedule and we look forward to meeting you soon!

Sincerely,

The Milwaukee Running Group Organizing Committee
