Beginning Runners Wanted - Our Valley Events

Running by yourself can be hard. Running by yourself when you’re just starting out is even harder.

When I first graduated from college I needed friends to run with and accountability and that’s where No Boundaries came in. I knew that two times a week, I had a group waiting for me at Fleet Feet. FF Huntsville has tons of training programs to help YOU strengthen your running and make lifelong friends along the way.

If you need a reason to start, a group to push you, and a good excuse to exercise – you’ve stumbled across the right blog.



Come move with us. Get stronger. Lose weight. No Boundaries is a 10-week beginner’s fitness program for people looking for a supportive group environment to learn to love walking and/or running. Nationwide, over 20,000 people have benefited from the program’s certified coaches, training sessions, & educational clinics.
