Meet up with friends, and make some new friends, at the Summer Social Run Series. The series will include Saturday morning runs and once-a-month Pub Runs with plenty of opportunities to socialize during and after the runs. The run series is FREE and the format is simple. No need to pre-register, just show up! All paces and ability levels are welcome.
Join us every Saturday morning at 8:00 a.m. starting May 11 through July 27 for a 3 or 5-6 mile run. All Saturday runs, except for July 20th, will start and stop at Fleet Feet. After the run, make plans to meet up for coffee and/or breakfast with your running friends. What a perfect way to start the day! Note that on July 20th, we encourage everyone to participate in the Zoo Run Run 5K, therefore, we will not be running from the store on that day. The routes for each Saturday are posted below.
In addition to the Saturday morning runs, we are partnering with local pubs to host a run each month from May through September. Do group runs and beer really go together? Why, yes, they do! We think the best beer is the one shared with friends after a run. The 3 mile pub runs will be at 6:30 on Tuesday evenings in May, June and July, and Thursday evenings in August and September.
Tuesday, May 21 and July 16 at 6:30 PM / Thursday, September 12 at 6:30 PM
Get ready for the first Pub Run of the series! The 3 mile run will start and end at Fleet Feet. After the run, we'll head over to Brokerage Brewing Co., just a block from the store. Hang out with your running buddies, enjoy some cold brew, and grab a bite to eat from The Guac Box. Friends don't let friends go thirsty at Brokerage!
