Group Runs


Wednesday Evening Training Runs

The Pacers have group training runs scheduled every Wednesday night. In the summer the format is usually trails, but road options are also available for those who prefer a smoother surface. The runs are generally one hour in length, and consist of varying levels of ability and pace. Walkers are also welcome and encouraged!  After the run, we usually gather at a neigborhood eatery. These runs start promptly at 6:15 p.m, unless otherwise noted. Each month, the club donates locally to a charitable organization.

Check out our Community Involvement page for more information about our charity training runs!

 
Check out the current month’s Newsletter for the most current dates and locations of the training runs.
