Group Runs


These groups are a great way to get to know new runners, learn from each other, and stay motivated to get your run in every week. 

Group runs take place year-round. Some runners may start earlier for more miles and circle back to the meeting location for the regular start time. Visit the NERC Facebook page to make early start plans. Make sure you dress visibly when runs take place on the roads or in the dark!

Saturday Long Runs

  • 7:30 AM in the winter (Labor Day to Memorial Day),  7:00 AM in the summer
  • Meet at Starbucks, 7639 Crile Road, Concord Township, Ohio
  • The ten-mile route is primarily on an asphalt bike path with shorter or longer options. The regular route includes the paved Greenway Corridor Trail in Concord. Additional routes go through Painesville and Chardon (Maple Highlands Trail). 

Monday Night Group Run

  • 5:30 PM sharp in the winter (when the clock falls back til it springs forward) and 6:00 PM in the summer
  • Meet at Lake Metroparks Chagrin River Park, Reeves Road entrance, 3100 Reeves Road, Willoughby, Ohio
  • Paved and crushed limestone paths with simple loops making it easy to do increments of 1, 3, and 5 miles. Most runners complete 3-5 miles, but you can do any distance you like! Winter time may be lightly attended. For the rest of the year there will always be a 10-12 min/mile pacer present and walkers are welcome. Bring a flashlight or headlamp in the winter.

Wednesday Night Track

  • 6:30 PM at Kirtland High School Track, 9150 Chillicothe Road, Kirtland, Ohio
  • Free, but valuable workouts led by Coach Rick Webb to help achieve your goals in a safe and injury free manner.
  • Please note that registered members attending group runs and events are covered through RRCA insurance.

No Runner Left Behind Group Runs-   Looking for Volunteer Leaders!!

  •  A run open to all NERC members, but focused on runners and walkers new to the “long-run“ or are not currently looking for “marathon training” type mileage. Location and Start Time will be determined by interest.
  • We plan to start with short loops and adjust runs according to the requests of the group.
  • Everyone is welcome and we hope to see you!
