Group Run Standards

We apply these standards to club-organized runs.

  • We run by time, not distance.

  • We do our best to make sure people do not run alone by encouraging runners to organize by pace.

  • We use simple routes (e.g., out/back courses) so people can easily find their way and not get lost.

  • We start runs with a brief talk to make sure everyone knows which way to go and if there are any safety reminders.

  • We strive to have at least one board member present at all runs to make sure these standards are upheld and to welcome new members.

We also encourage members to organize group runs on their own and if inviting other members to follow these standards when possible.
