Running with Groups

Running with groups comes with many benefits including Accountability, Consistency, Motivation, Learning from Others, and Social factors.

I discovered Fleet Feet Sports Sacramento back in Fall 2015 during my packet pickup for the Urban Cow 5K and discovered they had a fun run hosted by Nick. I have been attending their fun run every Tuesday in any weather.

In October/November 2015, I attended a joint event with Sacramento Running Association and Sloppy Moose Running Club. Since the fun runs reopened Feb 2016, I have spent every Thursday evening with them! They are an awesome group of people whether you drink or not. When you attend their runs and sign in 5 times, you will get your very own orange Sloppy Moose shirt like the one I received a few weeks ago.

SRA Rundezvous
The Sacramento Running Association’s RUNdezvous events are monthly fun runs. These events are FREE and are open to all members of the running community. Each month, we will be introducing you to a new club in the Sacramento Area and running varying distances (between 5K and 10K) in the Sacramento area. Each run will feature different routes around town.

Through social media and Fleet Feet Sports Sacramento CIM Seminars, I discovered SRA hosts monthly community runs. I usually attend these events if they are in walking/running and regional transit range to the event’s destination.
