What we're about

Hey Orange County Runners! Our group believes connecting with others is the best way to maintain a healthy lifestyle & have fun along the way. We welcome all levels - whether you're just getting into running/walking or training for a Boston-qualifying marathon. Every Wednesday we meet in Irvine for running, socializing and, of course, food. We also meet in various locations around OC for runs and other events. Check out our home page for the latest event details.

Social(ly Distant) Run

Jeffrey Open Space Trail (Meet @ Starbucks)

While COVID is still a concern, we'll be modifying our usual meetup and taking extra precautions to keep everyone safe. We'll meet as usual in front of the Starbucks on the west corner of Jeffrey Rd and Trabuco Rd (14061 Jeffrey Rd). *Please wear a mask when we meet. We'll then start the run in waves to make sure everyone is properly spaced out, so you can remove your mask during your run if you'd like. The route is along the scenic Jeffrey Open Space Trail. (It's called a "trail" but it's paved.) Most people run 2-4 miles, but the route is out-&-back so it's easy to go whatever distance you'd like. Walkers/runners/all levels are welcome! We'll meet before and after as a group, but feel free to run or walk at your own pace. Lastly, a few reminders... -If you end up near someone on your run, try to run next to them and avoid running directly behind others as much as possible. -Please RSVP ahead of time and cancel your RSVP if your plans change, as we may cap attendance to avoid a large gathering. -Please stay home if you're not feeling well in any way so we can keep the meetup safe for everyone.
