Running Clubs In Fort Collins

Penny and I runningAs I slowly (oh my god so slowly) get back into running, I’m pretty excited about two new running groups that have popped up.  They involve my favorite things; running, food, and drinks!

Not surprising that two such groups have launched in Fort Collins where we have plenty of runners and places to socialize afterwards!

The first group is bRUNch Running, where participants meet at a local restaurant and then from there either do a 5K or 10K loop ending back at the restaurant where it’s time for brunch!  There is no membership fee but participants do have to purchase a ticket to the event.

Tickets are $25 when purchased in advance and $30 at the door. Ticket price included: entree, two drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic), tax and gratuity. A dollar from each ticket sold benefits the Food Bank for Larimer County. bRUNch is open to runners and walkers of all levels.

The northern Colorado group will meet weekly through September. On September 28 there will be a final The bRUNch Run, a 5K timed race at Denver’s Stapleton Central Park. Throughout the season, participants will bRUNch at restaurants like the Mainline, Rainbow and Mulligan’s Pub in Fort Collins and Sports Station in Loveland.

The website has a calendar up and you can purchase tickets through there.

Another running group that we have here in Fort Collins is called the North FoCo Running Club.  They meet every Thursday at 6pm at different locations.  They run a loop and meeting back at the location for a drink after the run.  Their schedule is up on their website. I’m not sure the mileage for the loops, I think that might be determined on site.

So if you’re looking for some new fun social groups that also involve running, now you’ve got two to check out!
