The Nittany Valley Running Club has been holding Saturday morning group runs since the middle of July 2003. Lately, we've been getting several options every weekend, and have a Sunday option fairly regularly. We even hold an evening group run now and then during the week. Keep an eye on the Group Runs page here on the NVRC web site, or join the Yahoo! Discussion Group NVRC to get the current week’s run plan. The group runs also appear on the main calendar.

There are often local races that many in the club participate in and there may not be an organized group run on those days. If there's not a scheduled run check out the race calendar.

Though the group runs attract a wide range of ability, they are not meant for novices. The group usually covers 6-12 miles at a 8-10 minute/mile pace, depending on the route, the conditions, and who comes. There is usually an option to go shorter, which some runners take, and an option for those who want a longer training run. The whole group is usually together for at least a few miles.

If you are a beginner, or are not up to the distance or pace of the group runs, check out the new NVRC Beginner Runs. And the Bellefonte Road Raiders also have frequent weekend group runs.

For a little more about the pace and mileage of the various group runs, see "Can I Keep Up With You?"

We are always looking for organizers for the runs. All it requires is for you to let us know so we can post the time, place, and a description of what you plan to do. Email Marty Mazur at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you can help!
