Saturday and Sunday Group Runs Offered

You have the option to do your Group Runs on Saturday or Sunday mornings from the Sports Backers Stadium located next to The Diamond. Please indicate your preference on the entry form. There is a limit of 800 participants in the Saturday group run sessions and a limit of 400 participants in the Sunday group run sessions.

The first group runs will be Saturday, June 1 and Sunday, June 2. There will be a short introductory meeting beginning at 7:30 a.m. followed by our first group run. Beginning the following week, the Sunday run will start at 7 a.m. On Saturdays, the larger group will be divided into multiple groups starting between 7:00 and 7:30 a.m. To beat the summer heat, from early July until Labor Day, all start times will be 30 minutes earlier.

Do you have friends who want the marathon training team plan, support, and race day experience but can’t make it to the weekly group runs? Let them know that they can now sign up for our Virtual Marathon Training Team!
