On a normal Tuesday or Thursday night, PRCers run 4-8 miles at a pace of 7-11 minute miles. See Group Runs for a list of our popular running routes. Number of runners range from 5 to 30 depending on time of year, weather, etc. We all start together and then split into separate groups depending on speed and distance. We have routes where it is easy to cut off or add on to adjust your mileage. Many runners are training for short races and marathons. Nobody runs alone and everyone is really friendly. We have every type of runner - speedies, casual runners, moms with baby joggers, old and young, men and women, etc.
Newcomers - ask whoever is at the YMCA front desk where the running club is (we are usually stretching/waiting/chatting in the parking lot or near the pool). Come by and run with us to see if you like it! A Sunday run is always a good start for a new PRC member as it gets a big crowd and is more casual. We ask that runners who continue to enjoy our runs to join PRC. Membership is always open -- we love new members! You do not need to be a YMCA member to join PRC, but we encourage it. We like to be good to our gracious hosts. Also, PRC members receive a discount off YMCA memberships.
Come run with us!
