New York, NY
This group is open to active members of Shorewalkers, a non-profit group leading walks throughout the NYC area. Our volunteer hike leaders offer walks every weekend of the year and our signature event, a 32-mile hike around Manhattan called the Great Saunter, takes place on the first Saturday in May. To join this group, first register as a paid member at www.Shorewalkers.org. Come join us for a walk and experience NYC at 3 mph! Your participation in any of our activities is your acknowledgment that you are solely responsible for your own assessment of your abilities and your physical fitness to participate in that activity. Participants in any Shorewalkers activity are encouraged to discuss with the hike leader any limitation they may have that could affect their ability to fully participate in an event, especially on hikes outside city limits such as those on hiking trails. The hike leader may refuse to take anyone who lacks proper equipment as indicated in the hike description. Walkers must be physically fit and by joining any event you agree to waive all rights and claims for damages against Shorewalkers, it’s officers, directors, hike leaders, employees, event personnel or volunteers. Shorewalkers does not tolerate inappropriate behavior during its events. If you are subject to or witness any inappropriate behavior during a Shorewalker event, please contact the Shorewalker Meetup Organizers directly and report the behavior. Shorewalkers will investigate any reports of inappropriate behavior and take necessary action. Shorewalkers encourages social media posts of photos and videos taken during our events. We remind our members that such photos/videos are subject to the Content & Privacy guidelines of said social media platform. Shorewalkers reserves the right to use the photos/videos in any manner and for any reason, except for commercial purposes, without remuneration or attribution. We require those who capture video with identifiable voice of a hike leader or walker, to obtain approval of that person prior to posting the content to social media.
Dashing Whippets Running Team
New York, NY
The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a New York based running team that is founded on, and driven by, the diversity of our team members. With team members from all over the city, the country and the world, and with greatly different running goals, we find unity in recognizing and appreciating each others differences and our mutual enjoyment of running and participating in the New York running community and beyond. Our goal is to help each other become the best runners that we can and to fulfill our potential as athletes - whether that is to run your first race, run a PR, a marathon, an ultra marathon or an Ironman - our team spirit, expert coaches and training plans will help you achieve and exceed your goals. As a team, we aspire to be a net contributor to the running community by hosting multiple training sessions per week for runners of all abilities and pace, maintaining a low annual membership fee that ensures we are open to all, cheering at races and giving back to the community through volunteering and fundraising for local nonprofit organizations. The Dashing Whippets Running Team is a 501(c)(3) non-profit running organization operating under the Road Runners Club of America ([RRCA](http://www.rrca.org/)).

Fabulous females seeking female friends over 50 for events
New York, NY
\*\*\*Seeking wonderful women who like to socialize, wine and dine, go to live music and other shows with women friends. If you are looking for great friends and fun times, you will fit right in. This is a woman’s only group. Quite a few men have tried to join and I have attempted to drop them. If we are going to a show, I always set the event time for an hour earlier so we can chat before the show starts. Of course, you can arrive at a time that is good for each of you. \*\*\*\*\*Membership dues have been raised to $5 for women who have not paid yet or who want to join. Effective July 1st. I have been trying to figure out how to edit this statement and finally figured it out. Dues are annual and can be paid at PayPal under the “friends & family” option or thru Zelle, at your bank, both at 973-202-8298. Will see if I can add Venmo. I purchase tix to shows mostly at discount prices so that we are assured of sitting together. All tickets must be paid for when I post a paid event. I have a good relationship with City Winery Concierge and they help me get seats for shows that I pay for directly thru The Winery. I have websites where I can get discount tix for their shows. Even though I don’t know where our seats will be, we all sit together and I have never gotten bad seats. If I get tix thru The Winery, I don’t pay a service fee as I buy an annual CW membership that gives me advance notice of shows as well. City Winery has no food/drink minimum. Most other places do. Before Omicron, I was getting discount tix to Birdland and a lot of us attended great jazz shows there. I keep my eye out for new discount tix daily. I am also looking for free shows, like the 2 art shows I have set up. I only set up shows for later in the day/ evenings due to medical issues that I have. For any further info please message me. \*\*\*A lot of women have been canceling from attending an event until the minute or next to last minute. I am keeping track of these women and if you cancel last minute without good reason 2 times you will be placed on probation. Other groups do this as well.

Academic Writing Group
New York, NY
Ph.D students, Post-Docs, and early career professors working on their writing projects. We write in solidarity, along side one another, in quiet co-working sessions. The group normally meets in person but now (due to COVID), we write together on ZOOM. We meet and write, usually for 3 hours, taking short 5-minute breaks every 50/60' of continuous writing. Join us to defeat the sense of isolation academia entails. In our writing group, we support each others' goals and increase our productivity! And we drink a lot of coffee ☕️ as well, of course!!! \*\*The group is restricted to people working in academia (PhD students/candidates/post-docs/professors) \*\*Note: The writing group does not provide feedback on your writing (proofreading, works-in-progress, etc.) we use the time to actually write in solidarity!!
New York, NY
This group is for women in their 30s - 50s who are relaxed and easy going and love girlfriend time!
<br>Lunches, brunches, interviews by the pool... fun events, happy hours, travel, craft making, self-care, design, cooking lessons, live music & performances, beach time, yummy food, and most of all, laughter!
I want to keep this group genuine and close-knit, so not everyone will be a good fit. My hopes are to have an amazing group of strong, like-minded women who will form incredible lifelong friendships..
Can't wait to meet you! xx Heather
Midtown Ladies's Social Group
New York, NY
Welcome to Midtown Ladies Social Group! Sometimes it's tough meeting people and making genuine friendships in the city, especially if you're new, moved neighborhoods, work from home or even if just most of your friends have moved to the suburbs. So if you're into happy hours, walking/ jogging in the park, brunches, museums, the theater, or book clubs lets get together! I'm hoping to keep most events pretty small so that we can actually build genuine and lasting friendships! Guidlines and Rules: 1\. This is an all inclusive group\! Any rude\, demeaning or cruel comments to anyone or any group of people will result in you getting kicked out\. 2\. Because we are trying to create meaningful friendships and RSVP's are limited\, if you no show twice you'll be removed from the group\. This obviously does not include emergencies or notice given in advance \(cause I get it\.\.\.\. life happens\!\)\. 3\. If there is an event that requires payment in advance and you cant make it\, you are responsible for finding someone on the waitlist to buy that ticket and take your place\. 4\. Due to the number of men who have tried to join this group\, only accounts with profile pictures of your face will be approved\. If you are uncomfortable having a picture of your face up please message me\. Most importantly we're here to have fun and meet some amazing women!
