Live. Train. Run.

About Us

RunGR is a Grand Rapids running club made up of people with a wide range of skill levels and ages, all trying to better themselves and their community through running. With the guidance of two respected coaches, this group will help add the structure and purpose to your routines needed to take your running to the next level. RunGR has a training program for all levels.


RunGR meets as a group every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday. Our Tuesday and Thursday workouts focus on building strength and speed with an interval, hill, or tempo workout. Saturday workouts focus on endurance with a long run. The Tuesday and Thursday sessions meet at 6:00pm year-round, with an additional 6:00am option offered during the summer months. The Saturday long runs meet a 7:00am during the summer and 8:00am during the rest of the year.


Running locations are usually within the greater Grand Rapids area. We have a rotation of familiar locations around Grand Rapids and East Grand Rapids. A weekly newsletter is emailed to all members at the start of each week with the time and location of each workout.

Our Mission

Our mission is to bring running to the Grand Rapids community in a way that enables our members to live healthier and happier lives by providing the structure, organization, support, training, guidance, and friendships necessary to push themselves to new limits and acheive their running goals. At the core of this mission are our values: (1) dignified and respectful treatment of others; (2) integrity of actions; (3) encouragement of others; and (4) inclusivity of all ages and skill levels.
