Fun runs are held throughout the Capital Region and are open to all area runners regardless of age, pace, or skill level. Over the years, we have hosted hundreds of area runners at these events. In 2020, we are re-launching our Fleet Feet Running Club with many benefits, and including a one-time gift of a new singlet (sleeveless racing top) for all who join.
Annual dues for the Fleet Feet Running Club are $20 and include:
- Weekly newsletter with upcoming runs and events
- Private Facebook group for events and other Fleet Feet communications
- Complimentary gear storage at any race where Fleet Feet is present
- Enhanced communications through Fitvil app
- Two designated shopping days per year with special benefits
- Fun store staff and other friends to run with, year-round!
Both our Albany and Malta stores have weekly social runs, encouraging people to come out, make new friends, and experience the area's recreational options. These runs are hosted by store employees and are just for fun; they are not formal training runs. Further details about each store's typical FFRC social runs are below.
In Albany, we hold social runs on Wednesday evenings at 6 pm and Saturday mornings (8 am most of the year and often 7 am in the summer to beat the heat).
On Wednesdays, we frequently meet at the store and run over to The Crossings park in Colonie, or we sometimes meet at local establishments like a coffee shop, Nine Pin, City Lights, or a brew pub. Routes are usually 3-5 miles, with options available.
On Saturdays, we sometimes like to venture a bit further, often choosing a local trail or park to explore, such as Peebles Island in Cohoes, Lions Park in Niskayuna, or the UAlbany campus. Sometimes our appetites win out and we meet for a run at a local coffee shop or bagel store.

Our Malta group runs are often held in Saratoga, so we can more easily include people traveling to us from points to the north.
On Wednesday evenings at 6pm, we usually meet at Bailey’s in downtown Saratoga Springs (37 Phila Street) to run 3-5 miles before returning to the restaurant for refreshments or a meal.
On Saturday mornings, we meet at Urban Roots (46 Marion Avenue, Saratoga Springs) and then run 3-5 miles through downtown Saratoga or up to Skidmore College.
