June Updates from RRRGF

Fargo Wrap-up

On May 20th & 21st, dozens of Red RIver Runners from Grand Forks entered into the events of the Fargo marathon weekend. From the 5k all the way up to the full marathoners, our runners represented. I want to send out a huge congrats to all who ran. Whether it was your very first race, or your 101st, you set out to accomplish a goal and you DID IT! You inspire others to do the same. Great job.

What's Next for RRRGF

Just because the training season for Fargo is over doesn't mean that we have to stop meeting every week! RRRGF will continue to meet every Saturday morning at 8am, AND every Tuesday evening at 6pm. All meetings for the summer will be at the YMCA. The summer group runs are very informal. There is no set distance and no set training schedule. Just show up and we can all choose the distance we want to go. Some runners who show up are training for a marathon, and some just want to come to get in a few miles with other people. Everyone is welcome. It's super fun and very relaxing...the way running should be! See you Tuesdays or Saturdays!

Beginning Runners Group (BRG)
It's time to start up our Annual session of Beginning Runners Group! BRG is open to all runners who want to get started with the sport. We meet for 10 weeks and every week is a 30 minute workout. We start out having you run for 2 minutes, and walk for 4 minutes. We do intervals like that until we reach 30 minutes. Every week, we increase the running time and decrease the walk time. We finish off with a 30 minute run. For anyone who has never run before, to the former runner who wants to get back into it, BRG is for you! We will meet every TUESDAY at 6pm at the YMCA with the RRRGF group. The cost of the group is $20 and it includes a Red River Runners t-shirt and membership to the RRRGF group. Weekly BRG meetings will begin on Tuesday, June 14th. Tell your friends and come on out! We have a blast!
