Just wondering if there was groups that ran 7-10 miles daily or weekly new to the area and looking for a running group mostly everything I've found is 3 miles

Hi Pete,

You could try doing the Jack Quinn's Running Club: JQRC

They meet every Tuesday night around 6...part trail part road.

Most of the trails around here are too rocky for strollers. The Greenway Trail might work for you: Greenway Trail Map

Hi folks, new to the group.  I'm looking for a good (preferably trail) run to do with a double jogging stroller.  I get more time to run if I push the kids.  Thanks all, Pete

Hey Runners! Chris Pannone from Generation UCAN is going to be at Jack Quinn's RC tonight. You can find him sharing a table with Falcon PT - he'll have info about Generation UCAN products as well (disclaimer - I use GenUCAN and love it.) He ran for CU-Boulder a few years ago and just finished 20th overall in the Boston marathon! Be sure to say hi to him!

Hey Ty!,

Brian was there. I stayed home to nurse my various sore spots and pulled things. I'm gonna try to be there on Tuesday. Brian has been running with the fast trail guys. I'm sticking with the slow trail runners until all my body parts work. Hopefully see ya Tuesday!

I did enjoy running this morning. In general I really dislike running, but it was a great atmosphere, and everyone was so nice and welcoming. Next time I will be leaving my dog at home, I wasn't sure how she would do, and after the first 3/4 mile she got pretty stubborn with me! Definitely appreciate Dave for putting this together!

Brian, Hope you enjoyed the training run and continue to. And just want to say that we all owe our appreciation to Dave Sorenson for coordinating these and being there bright and early every morning.

Sounds great, the more I read about it the more excited I get. I will for sure be there tomorrow. I would like to say I will be there on Tuesdays, but I don't get home from work before 11pm on Monday night, so it means a pretty short night for me :-(

Hey Brian! I'll be running with the slow trails group on Tuesday. Definitely go and check it out. We were there on Tuesday. Great people, really fun time!
