Group Runs

KCTC wants to connect runners and walkers in their own neighborhoods. There is most likely a group run close to you. This is a great way to stay motivated, hook up with runners that run your same pace, log some miles and make some new friends.  Group runs (and walks) are all informal so you just need to show up. If you have an existing group or want to start one, let us know and we will help you find other runners in your neighborhood.

These runs are updated as the runs change; you can attend any of these runs by just showing up! You can also check out of our Facebook page for any weekly reminders! If you are not a KCTC member try a group out a few times and join once you have decided it is a right fit for you! You can join here!
