Other Fantastic Running Groups

Several members of this group help facilitate or attend the fantastic running groups listed below. I highly recommend checking these out:

Active Oval Track Workouts: https://www.facebook....
Our small group currently meets at 6:30pm on Wednesday nights for interval workouts. Generally the speed portion of each week's workout is between 3 and 4 miles, with the entire workout (including warm-up, cool-down and recovery laps) somewhere in the vicinity of 6-7 miles. Workouts can be tailored to any experience level, and everyone is encouraged to run at his/her own pace. Each week's workout is slightly different, and details are posted prior to each workout. Meet at the Active Oval in Piedmont Park.

Dunwoody Running Group:
Dunwoody Running meetup brings together runners or walkers (of all levels) who understand that it's more fun to participate in fitness surrounded by a supportive group. A group provides safety for those of us who have to schedule these activities in the evening after work or other obligations. We run through different locations around Dunwoody including Dunwoody Village, Murphy Candler Park, Riverside Park, and Don White -- We are ALWAYS scouting for new places to keep things fresh. Runs are scheduled throughout the week and the distances vary -- so you can choose one that works for you.

Back on My Feet (BoMF): http://atlanta.backon...
Facebook Page: http://www.facebook.c...
This is an amazing organization that, through running, is helping the Atlanta homeless one individual at a time by providing accountability, support, and encouragement -- combined with tactical resources in the area of finance, employment skills and more. This organization provides its Members with a community that embraces equality, respect, discipline, teamwork and leadership. Back on My Feet has pre-selected shelters and has pre-qualified some of the residents of these shelters for this program. Three mornings a week non-residential members (these would be volunteers like you) run with the residential members -- relationship, encouragement, and many, many milestones are shared. When we are running together --- social and economic walls fall away and we become a group all passionate about the same thing -- joining together through the love of running to move lives forward. For more information, and to get involved, visit the website listed at the top of this page.

Urban Run Club: http://www.urbanruncl...
The original Tuesday Night Urban run Club “where no one gets left behind” running group meets every Tuesday night at 7 at the Whole Foods on Ponce. This is an all level group where “NO ONE GETS LEFT BEHIND”. Check us out on Facebook https://www.facebook....

Virginia Highlands Running Club: https://www.facebook....
The Virginia High Running Club meets weekly on Wednesdays in front of George's on North Highland at 7 PM (Near the intersection of Virginia and Highland). The club is very informal and usually at least a few dozen people show up to run each week. The group breaks up into running groups for various distances, usually ranging from 3.5 to 8 miles. So no matter who you are, you'll probably find someone to run with!

And be sure to stop in at George's afterwards for water, socializing, food, and beer.
