Training

Running Groups

One of the best ways to get motivated and get out there is to join a running group. Running groups are a great way to meet neighbors and friends while training for your goal.

Our group runs will vary in pace and distance, everyone is always welcome, and no one gets left behind.

Stay Tuned!

We will tentatively start our group runs in March (maybe sooner if the weather stays this nice!) and will continue to have runs up until race day. Runs will typically start at 8am on Saturday mornings at the Lions Gym & Wellness Center in downtown Robbinsdale.

“Like” us on Facebook for updated dates, times, and routes for our group runs.

Training Plans

Another way to keep motivated is to get yourself on a training plan. Whether this is your first race or you are trying for a new personal record, a training plan can help keep you on the right track.
