We are a friendly and inclusive group of people that enjoy running and being social. We run on Tuesday evening at 7:00 p.m. and meet at the Royal Oak Library (1 mile, 2 miles, 3 miles, or 5 miles); Thursday at 7:00 p.m. at Westborn Market (4 or 6 miles); and Saturday morning at the Royal Oak Library at 9:00 a.m. (1 mile, 2 miles, 3 miles, 5 miles, Long Runs). Our members use the discussion board and calendar to schedule additional runs. We have runners preparing for races at almost all distances and some that run for fun.
On Tuesday night we go to Lockharts for post-run food and beverages, and on Saturday we meet at Bean and Leaf for post-run coffee. All are welcome and the invitation is always open to socialize after the run!
We start as a group and finish in the same spot so there is plenty of time to socialize. We don't really run as one large group. Usually everyone finds someone to partner off and run with. It happens organically. You have to come a few times to really see how it works and sort of just "trust" the process. You'll end up with different people on different days. Sometimes you might run alone and that's okay too! Our runners have a variety of paces. We don't do time trials, but you will easily find people to run at a pace of 7, 8, 9, and 10 minute miles.
Feel free to signup and take a look around our page to determine if our group will work for you.
Please include a photo of yourself so that we can welcome you to the group when we see you. It also helps to know what you look like when we meetup at running events around town. We look forward to running with you soon!
