Elvehjem Neighborhood Running Club

Elvehjem Neighborhood Running Club

The Elvehjem Neighborhood Association “Weekend Warrior” Running Club has been meeting since December 2010.  We average 10 minutes per mile, with a few members willing and able to partner up with those who want to run a faster or slower pace.  We run anywhere from three to six miles, depending on the route and group consensus.  Our goals are to:

  • promote the sport of running,
  • provide a running option on the eastside of Madison,
  • encourage entire family participation through use of jogging strollers,
  • offer support and guidance to anyone training for a particular race or distance,
  • embrace the spirit of long slow distance runs by socializing, and
  • sponsor two neighborhood races—a 5K Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving and the Firecracker 5K/Kids Fun Run on the Fourth of July. 

Our core group is about five members, with several others on our weekly e-mail list, who join us when they are able.  We meet at 5306 East Buckeye Road at the wooden staircase.  A two-month schedule is distributed to all group members listing run times, days, and routes.  The group helps build the schedule by deciding the time and day that works best for everyone.  If you are interested in joining our free running club, check out our schedule at:  We are always looking for new members, from experienced marathoners to beginners. 

Contact coordinator Tiffani Roltgen at 608-513-9433 or with any questions.  Hope to see you out on the road on Madison’s eastside!
