Train for the health of it ... Race for the fun of it!

Local Running Groups

Have you thought about starting to run or train for a race but the thought of weeks of training is intimidating? Or have you tried to start a training plan but gave up after three or four mornings of rolling over and hitting the snooze button? These are just some of the reasons you may want to consider joining a running group! We are very fortunate to have lots of running groups to choose from within Southwest Missouri - Morning. Evening. Short. Long. Slow. Fast. Weekend. Weekday. Click to find a listing of running groups in the area. If I missed a group, let me know via!
