If you’re looking for some company while walking or running around Greater Cincinnati, check out these local clubs.
Targeted groups are geared toward training for certain races, but there’s also a full-year training group that you can dip into and out of as needed. The Tri-State Running group meets Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 7 a.m., and the Mariemont group meets Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 7 a.m.
Avondale Running Club
The club dates back to 1984, is associated with the National Black Marathoners Association, and has a history of supporting community organizations and giving out scholarships. All are welcome to join Avondale Running Club for 8 a.m. Sunday walks/runs alternating between Winton Woods, Glenwood Gardens, and other locations.
BrewRunners of Cincinnati
Because running and beer go hand in hand, the half-marathon training group BrewRunners of Cincinnati meets at different breweries for runs and then socializes afterwards. Runs are Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. and Saturdays at 9 a.m. They’re currently training for the Flying Pig Half Marathon and will pro-rate dues for those joining mid-season.
