We aim to meet you where you are and offer guidance and structure for you to meet your personal wellness goals in a safe, supportive group environment.

Program Format & Features

Based on your current fitness level at the beginning of the program, we will place you in one of four run-walk interval groups, one all-walking group, or one all-running group. You can switch groups at any time! Each group has an awesome, experienced leader that will lead your group run/walk each week and serve as a mentor and cheerleader for you throughout the program (and beyond)!

Whether you want to learn how to run, get into shape, train for a goal race, or simply work on running consistently and taking some time out for yourself, RunBuds is for you!

You will benefit from the camaraderie and positive energy and support of your group, meet new walking and running buddies, and learn important tips on stretching, core strengthening, nutrition, training, and more to help you on your journey!
