Power of the Group
One of the great things about running is it’s an activity that you can do just about anytime, anywhere — all by yourself. You don’t need a team for this sport, but joining forces with fellow runners has a lot of advantages.
- Support and Motivation – When your Tuesday evening running group is counting on you to join them, you’re less likely to skip your workout. Our members help keep each other on track to meet their goals.
- Learning – Get tips on training techniques, discover new running routes, trade nutrition tips, discuss your favorite gear, and more.
- Safety – Running in a group can be safer than running on your own. There’s someone nearby to call for help in case of an emergency, and cars are more likely to see a group of runners and give them the right of way.
- Fun – Long runs seem to go by faster when you have friends beside you. Plus we have plenty of fun social events throughout the year.
Corridor Running offers all these benefits — and more — to our members in Cedar Rapids, Iowa City, and the surrounding areas.
All current Corridor Running members are invited to attend the monthly board meetings. Information can be found in the Torch.
