Group runs help motivate our members to get out and run in the cold or heat or rain or snow. Regardless of your pace, you can join us and likely find someone that will run close to your time. Each week, we have 5 organized group runs that occur from Tuesday - Sunday. All are welcome to join us on our group runs. All you need to do is show up at the designated location and time. We are sure you will eventually you will want to become a member!
If you can make it, simply let someone know it's your first time, and you will be welcomed with open arms to experience a JSRC group run. Check back here for details or check the Facebook group page for any updates.
