          Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 9:00 AM

          Have You Thought About Coming to Group Run?

          Curious about Group Run? Have you wondered what it's all about? Do you hesitate when it comes to joining a Group Run? Have you thought about going to a Group Run but decided not to because you don't know anyone?

          If you answered yes to any of the above questions, My First Group is for you! If you have never made it to a Group Run before simply due to scheduling conflicts, My First Group Run is for you!

          Would you like a Group Run that is non-intimidating? Stress Free? And Cost Free?

          My First Group Run is for you!

          Welcome First Timers to My First Group Run!

          We're so excited to introduce our new event called My First Group Run.

          You may have heard about the Free Group Runs at St. Pete Running Company every Monday and Thursday at 6:30 PM. We're putting on a special event just for first timers.

          Event Details

          My First Group Run

          Saturday, June 24, 2017 at 9:00 AM

          RSVP ON FACEBOOK

          Every first-time Group Runner will receive a $10 Gift Card to the store.

          There will also be reserved parking just for first timers!

          What to expect at My First Group Run:

          This Free Group Run is for all levels of walkers and joggers. When you arrive at St. Pete Running Company, there will be about a ten minute talk from a staff member explaining in detail the step-by-step process of what we do at Group Run, including a Q&A for those who have questions. We want you to feel very comfortable at our Group Run, so we'll have some current Group Runners available to pair up with you for the actual Group Run. We'll help you estimate what pace you plan to go and pair you up with someone who will be able to stay with you during the run or walk. Then we'll head out on a casual walk or jog with partners at whatever distance you are comfortable with up to a 5K. But if you'd like to do less distance, that's not a problem at all. We want this to be a stress-free and non-intimidating run or walk for you!
