Group Runs

Tuesday & Thursday Runs are open to everyone. Saturday Runs – Fall Schedule




Our Fall Marathon training schedule will be focused on the 7-Bridges Marathon/4-Bridges Half Marathon, which takes place on October, 18, 2015. Our Saturday runs will be on the Silver Comet Trail, Ansley/Midtown and Buckhead and will be provided with maps and nutrition (water/gatorade) at the start/finish and along the course. We do recommend members to carry their own nutrition as well.

I run best when I run free.
