A great way to start a Saturday

We had a great turnout this morning for our first group run! Here are some photos of the runners who braved the snow. It was a beautiful, warm run this morning. Happy that 22 people could make it out!

The Scene at 7:30am this morning before the group run. Pretty snowy!

After the run, Craig made a snow "runner" for us to enjoy.

Post run. Some of the half marathon group. It was great snowball-making snow, as you can see (craig). Thanks for bombing me after the run, guys. Payback is on the way!

Great job today, everyone!

See you next week.

Still on!

It's a balmy 34 degrees in the Grand Cities. It's a little mushy outside today, but still a great day for a run.

I will see you all at the YMCA at 8am!

Happy running!

Hi Gang!

I know lots of you are wondering about the weather. Right now, if it stays like this (warm and snowing), we will still plan to meet.

If the weather gets worse, please check the blog before departing for the YMCA to make sure we are still on.

Thank you!

Thanks to all who came out for the RRRGF informational meeting today. We had a great turnout. It was very motivating to see so many of NEW faces who want to embark on the 18 week journey with us. Make sure to check this site weekly (or more) to get the latest information on where to meet us. If you're not ready to commit to the whole 18 week session, I invite you to come out for a group run just to try it. I am confident that you'll like what you find.

Our first group run will begin at 8am at the Grand Forks YMCA. Watch the blog for links on registration forms, schedules, and more coming soon!

Informational meeting set for 1-16-10

It's that time of year again! The holidays are here, we've stuffed ourselves full of turkey and mashed potatoes, and now we're pondering what big goal we can set to make 2010 a successful year. Well, friends, I am here to help.

The 2010 Fargo Marathon Training Class is set to begin on January 23rd at 8am at the YMCA in Downtown Grand Forks. Whether you're running the full marathon, the half marathon, or any of the other races included in the Fargo marathon weekend, Red River Runners Grand Forks wants to help you get to the finish line.

Need some convincing that this is the path you want to embark on this winter? Come to the informational meeting set for January 16th at 1:30pm in room 258 at the Hughes Fine Arts Center on the Campus of the University of North Dakota. At this meeting, we'll tell you all about the 18 week training class (January 23rd through May 22nd) including group runs, informational sessions, dressing for cold weather running, injury prevention, and more!

Worried about finding people who run at your pace? Red River Runners is bringing back our trainers again this year. Trainers are leaders of individual pace groups so you'll always have someone to keep you motivated! Training is easier AND more fun with a group!

Looking for running partners AFTER the training class is over? RRRGF meets weekly through October. The group also provides a great atmosphere for making new running friends. Find someone at your pace and meet up whenever works best for you!

Whatever your pace, whatever your ability level, Red River Runners Grand Forks is looking forward to helping you accomplish your running goals.

Stay up to date with what RRRGF is doing all year long by following us on twitter, facebook, and our blog.

Happy Running! See you on January 16th.
