Group Runs

Thursday Night Group Runs

Thursday night group runs will meet at 7:00 PM on the back patio of Brightside Aleworks in Altoona. We have 3 regular routes that can be run. Route 1 is a simple 1 mile loop around the ponds behind Brightside. Route 2 is a 3 mile loop that starts towards the Campus, then past Lions Park softball fields and the down to 1st Avenue and back towards Hy-Vee and then finishing up at Brightside. Route 3 is a larger 6 mile loop that uses route 2 but continues over towards Sam Wise fields and through the Spring Creek Soccer fields and then finally over to 1st and back to Brightside.

We will focus these runs on being fully inclusive by having a slower pace and waiting at any turns for people. All paces and experience welcome.

After the run have a tasty beverage from Brightside and chat about running with the group.

Route 1 – 1 mile

Route 2 – 3 miles

Route 3 – 6 miles

Wednesday Night Trail Runs

Throughout the year we will be having Wednesday night group trail runs.  These runs are coordinated through our Facebook private group and will be at various trails throught the area.  Places that we have ran in the past include Thomas Mitchell Park, SEP Cross Country Course, Ewing Park, Center Trails, Sycamore Trails and Jester Park.  We typically run when conditions are favorable to not cause any trail damage as well.  This means in the winter or spring if there is a freeze thaw sequence going on we will not be running.
