After completion of a very successful Marathon training group session for 2012 many of the members of our training groups found themselves looking for more social running time. This seemed to be the theme set by the highly successful Pub Runs organized the last Wednesday of each month in conjunction with adidas and World of Beer Altamonte.
Every month we are getting upwards of 80 or more attendees all looking to enjoy the fun social aspects of running. What better reason to run than to finish with a frosty beverage of your choice. One of the biggest reasons the Pub Runs are so successful is they encompass all types of runners and walkers. Orlando Women Runners and Black Girls Run have all come out to be part of the fun and continue to fuel its growth with newcomers from all around.
Many people are so busy with their own personal schedules that they find they are not getting the social runs in and this seems to fit. The runs offer as little as 2.5 miles upward of more than 6 and most of the time they finish with raffles of free gear and all kinds of goodies. The October Pub Run fell on Halloween night so attendance was lighter but everyone that did show up was treated to a Scavenger Hunt throughout the area and what a blast they had!
The new running club will bring all of it together and offer social runs two times per week from the store and also offer off site meet ups and track nights utilizing our partnership with Lake Mary High School. Run as little as three miles or as far as 16!
