GROUP RUNS FROM THE STORE

The Monday Night Run
Casual group run followed by social time. Run starts at 6 PM every Monday. Various paces and distances. All are welcome.

Saturday Morning Group Run
Continuing throughout the summer, we're opening at 7:30 AM for a 8:00 group run. We'll have two routes planned each week: shorter (4-5 miles) and longer (8-10) miles. A LRC staff member will lead the group out the door, ensure that everyone knows the routes, and assist in creating pace groups. All are welcome, Individuals and groups. All paces. All distances. If you want to go longer or shorter, we'll help you find the best route.

This isn't a running club, a training program or a racing team. There's no registration fee and you don't need a uniform. All you have to do is show up. We'll be open.
