Have you been wanting to get out and run with other runners, but either feel intimidated by experienced runners or not up for a long/intense session? Come out and join Steve Buelna and crew for 8 weeks of introductory running on a variety of local trails for a group run specifically designed for the beginning/mellow runner. Whether you are looking to learn some new places to run and meet some new running buddies or have plans to race your first half marathon, the DPMR Newbies Run Club is for you!
Training sessions will be on Tuesdays, starting April 7th. This initial run will take place on the Legacy Trail. Meet at the East River Street bridge in Truckee (39.331161, -120.168611). Subsequent locations posted to the DPMR Facebook page and the calendar on the DPMR website. Be laced up and ready to go as the run starts at 6:00 PM sharp! The first run will be exactly 30 minutes, regardless of how fast you run.
What should you bring? Just bring your running shoes and a desire to have fun. If you have a watch and a water bottle, you can bring that too. Check DPMR Facebook page for reminders about the run on Tuesday evenings, along with a location and conditions update. Please note that because our group size tends to be large, we’ve found dogs can be problematic when we are on single track trails and bike paths. Well-behaved dogs that are experienced around runners and cyclists are welcome when we are running on bike paths and they are on-leash, or when we are on fire roads.
Hang out afterwards to socialize over beverages (compliments of DPMR). We will also be doing a couple of shoe demos (dates TBD) and post-run pizza nights (dates TBD). Stay tuned for additional details!
The primary focus for these runs is to offer an inviting run option that can help to get newer runners stoked on running. So tell your family, friends, coworkers and come have a BLAST with the DPMR Newbies.
