Community Running -- Clintonville
Community Running is free, a great way to meet new runners and to improve your fitness level. Since the beginning of 2013, we have been meeting every Wednesday, at 6:30PM, at the Whetstone Recreation Center. We meet in the back parking lot, near the Rec Center, and head out on the running path or in the neighborhood.
Community Running is a group running experience starting in the Clintonville area. Community Running is a group running program for anyone interested in running, from the novice to experience runner. Community Running is the concept of group runs as a community and running in the community. So let’s explore the community of Clintonville with other runners as you train for a personal best in 2013.
