Finding the Perfect Running Club

Finding the Perfect Running Club 

I am a BIG FAN of Running Clubs – Pennsylvania and New Jersey are seriously great places to live if you are a runner and looking to get involved with some awesome running groups. Not only are there great races every weekend, {including the Perfect 10 Miler coming up in a few short weeks!} there are also some amazingly beautiful places to train and enjoy running outside in this beautiful weather. Whenever possible, I love running in new areas enjoying the beautiful scenery – it’s such a treat and a great way to change things up in your running routine!

Here are a few of my favorite running clubs in the Philadelphia/South-Central New Jersey – these are just a few, there are so many to choose from

1. Mercer-Bucks Running Club – A great group for Central NJ/Eastern PA runners with lots of regular runs and a track workout option throughout the week.

2. South Jersey AC – A tour of the South Jersey Running Clubs during the week with great run and track workout options in different areas of SJ.

3. Princeton Athletic Club – Join this group every Wednesday at 6:15pm for a sociable 3-5 mile run

4.Philadelphia Runner – Group Runs every Thursday at 6pm with runs throughout Center City Philadelphia

5.Valley Forge Striders- Running group options for all levels almost every day during the week

6. Fishtown Beer Runners – Every Thursday at 7pm for a 3-5 mile run, ending at a different pub for a beer {or two}

7. Bryn Mawr Running Club – BMRC is focusing on speed work every Tuesday night, so if you are looking to add some speed, check them out!

These are just a few of my favorite running groups in the Philadelphia/ South-Central NJ but there are so many more great ones out there too! Check out Running in the USA for some awesome running clubs in your area! ! If you can, definitely try to check out a running club in your area – challenge yourself to grab a friend and hit up a new running route this week.

You can also check out the more than 40 teams registered to run the Perfect 10 Miler and run with them or come out to one of the Perfect Training Parties now through race weekend.
