Participants in a running clinic have decided to continue with a free run club.

Run Club brings runners together

What began as an instructional running clinic has evolved into a free run club, and the new met for the first time on June 13.

What began as an instructional running clinic has evolved into a free run club, and the new met for the first time on June 13.

“The whole goal of this club is just to get people running together,” said Magi Scallion, one of the club’s organizers, along with Marie-Michelle Lafontaine.

Many of the 18 people who signed up for the clinic were new to town and looking for people to run with, and naturally wanted the group to continue.

Runners will meet at Element Therapeutics at 6 p.m. on Mondays before setting out on the trails.

“There’s a want for it in the community,” Scallion said.

The club’s make up will encompass anything from total beginners to those training for the Golden Ultra in the fall, and runners of all abilities should have no trouble finding others who run at a similar level.

“It’s free and it’s a great way to meet people…it’s a really great group,” Scallion said.
