Our First Group Run!

Enjoy a night with runners of all abilities as you traverse the beautiful downtown area along the river on a group run ranging from ~3.5 to 6 miles. 

We'll have our Altra rep on hand to offer TRY ON SHOES to use on the run.  If you've never run in an Altra shoe or if you're curious about the current models - Torin 3.5, Escalante, and Provision - you'll be able to see how they feel and give them a test run!

After the run, there will be plenty of fun and free stuff including:

  • Free Coffee (Honest Roast)
