    1. Hi Susanne. To join the training groups, just show up 5-10 minutes before the designated times at the designated locations and look for runners. That’s all there is to it! I don’t think any paperwork is needed in most, if not all, cases.

      Come on out!

    1. Would love weekend runs. They are my longer runs. I also run with my dog if you would like to make it a dog runners group. I am near CSU/Campus west.

  1. I am looking to start running again and am wondering if there are options for beginners. Any further information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks and Happy Running 🙂

    1. Hi Dana. Virtually all of these options are beginner friendly. This is not to say everyone will be running the same speed as you, just that there will very likely be at least one person willing to run with you and make sure you don’t get lost!

      Best to just come out and try at least once. I’ve met so many “beginners” who are intimidated to come out but when they finally do (e.g., when I coerce them) they wish they had done so sooner. 🙂

  2. Hi!
    I just moved to Fort Collins recently from the east coast, and am looking to meet people with the same passion for running. I am a stay at home Mom, and would love to run in the early mornings, any scheduled runs in that time period?
    So psyched that there is a running club,
    Tina

    1. Hi Tina. Welcome to the Fort! I am sure we have many members running in the morning, although from our Training Runs page, it looks like we only have evening runs scheduled.

      I would suggest posting a message to our Facebook page and see if anyone would be interested in running with you in the early mornings. (I would be if you are on the north side of town!) A lot more members interact through the Facebook page than our website.

    2. I am also interested in running early mornings…..I live on the north side of town near Richard’s Lake…..lots of beautiful places to run around here…… Give me a message if intersted….

  3. Hello~
    I was wondering about joining the running club and wondered if there were any gatherings on Sunday or Monday? I have recently decided I need to get back into shape and started running again, but miss having people to run/jog with.

    Cheers,
    Kevin

    1. Hi Kevin. Short answer: not many. All our regularly scheduled events are listed here on this page. In addition, on the first Sunday from October-April, we have the Tortoise & Hare races, which includes breakfast afterwards.

      But there are members who do their own runs on Sunday and Monday and would love someone to run with. I encourage you to join (“like”) our Facebook page and post something on the wall and see if any members would like to join you.

  4. I put up a post on the Facebook page, but I haven’t heard anything back so I figured I’d try here.

    I just moved to Fort Collins this week and am looking for some company during runs (and also just to meet some folks!). I’m in the middle of training for a marathon, so having someone on the long runs, or even a portion of them, would be enjoyable.

    I hope to hear from the group soon! Thanks!

    1. Would love to have company on my runs a few times a month or more. I am currently training to do a fun run double marathon from old town fort collins to Pearl Street in Boulder some time next summer.

  5. Hi-
    I just moved to the area (and joined the club). Wondering if there are any morning runs, or people who want company for them. I normally do 5-6 miles in the weekday AM and run 9:45-10:15 pace. Totally flexible for any company to get to know the area and meet fellow runners.

    Thanks.

  6. Hey all – do you still do the track workouts and where can I find the most updated schedule? I’m just joining and want to get organized. Thanks!

    1. Hi Cassandra, The TNT – Tuesday Night Track workouts are happening every week. They post the location and workout a few days prior on their Facebook page. Hope to see you out there!
