What we’re about
We are Go Far Run Group! This run group is for anyone looking to meet new friends, train with a great group of people, and have fun while running (or walking!)! New for 2020 we have 2 challenges... the 20 in 2020 Challenge and the Trail Challenge! Scroll on down below the waiver to find out the details of the challenge!
We have folks of all abilities in our group, from walkers who are happy being walkers; to walkers transitioning to running; to 10 minute mile runners; to 6 minute mile runners! We have folks who have never been in a race in their lives to those who are experience half and full marathoners. We do ask that folks take part in a Meetup at least once every 3 months in order to keep our membership active.
If you need to see our waiver again (other than when you first joined our group), you can find it below.

For the 2020 20 Meetups in 2020 challenge, this one is pretty simple and straight to the point... can you make it to 20 Go Far Meetups in 2020? If you can, you will earn a sweet Go Far iron on patch at the end of the year. I'll send out a mock up of what it looks like when I get the proof! You can easily iron this on to any gear you have to make it Go Far proud!
Our second challenge will be the Go Far Trail Challenge! We will have 12 trail runs throughout the year, once a month, some to places we've never gone before and returning to some old favorites. If you can make it to 6 out of 12 trail runs in our trail challenge (does not include our normal Quicksilver or Rancho runs!!) you will earn a camping mug that you can bring with you to all your future adventures. This trail adventure will include some pretty challenging ascents... do you have it in you to rise to the challenge?
If you would like to be in either of these challenges, please shoot me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org or send me a Facebook message and let me know if you are in and for which challenge you want to be a part of! You can join any time you like, just let me know if you want to join so I can keep track of your Meetups.
