We believe that a run can change your day, week, month, life, and the whole world around you. This is why we host our FunRun series and strive to give you more chances to impact your own life, as well as those around you. Each run is open to anyone and everyone. Mileage may vary, but you are welcome to complete whatever distance you want to in the time provided.
No timing, no trophies, no audience... just Fun and Run.
In need of a little motivation for your next run? Always wanted to start running but don’t know where to start? Look no further than the Run to the Pub, a group that combines two of our favorite loves: running and beer.
How it works: Run to the Pub meets once a week for 4-6 weeks at a runner-friendly pub in The Region. Runners, walkers and joggers are all are welcome! Distances will vary and can be modified by any attendee. Coaches will be on hand to make sure everyone gets in safely. Each run ends at the pub where it began and participants receive a FREE beer and raffle prizes. Must be 21 or older.
All 2019 series are Thursday evenings at 6:30PM:
Fall Series: October 17 - November 21

Super Hero Run (3-ish miles)
May the 4th (be with you) @ Chemshaw 13
Release the hero (or the villain) within and unleash our powers on the run. Costumes are basically required... or at least capes and we'll tour the town.
