UBRec Running Group

UBRec Running Group

The UBRec Running Group will start 8/4/2017!

The group will casually break into small groups based on one’s personal goals. We will have a novice, intermediate, advanced and walking groups. Our destination each week will be the Amherst Bike Path.

Starting 8/14/17, the groups main focus will be training for the Linda Yalem 5K. The group runs will follow the FREE TRAINING PLANS available on the UBRec website. You do not need to be training for the Linda Yalem 5K to participate in the running group.

Lastly, we will run in anything except torrential storms and lightening!

"I often hear someone say I'm not a real runner. We are all runners, some just run faster than others. I never met a fake runner."
