This is the place to find the 4-1-1 on all things Run 816. So you can be in the know, ya know??
How long are the Sunday group runs?
The Sunday group runs are designed to be a long run. The course is usually 10-14 miles, either a loop or out and back. The course is marked at every turn, with the first half of the route having turns marked coming back, too. You can make it as long or short as you need. We have water stops every 2 miles. All runs start and end at Run 816.
What time are the Sunday group runs?
Spring and Summer start at 7:00 am, Fall and Winter start at 8:00 am. See the Calendar for current starting time.
Am I fast enough for the Wednesday Night Speed Sessions?
Yes!! The Speed Sessions are for ANYONE that wants to get faster than they currently are. There is a different workout each week, all scalable to your current fitness level. Get there at 5:45 pm to review pacing and quantities, warm up starts at 6:00. SME High School track (75th and Mission Rd)
Do you have a changing room? Place to leave my keys?
We have a changing room and a restroom you can change in. We have storage cubicles where you can stash your keys, coat, gym bag, etc.
Where do I park?
There is a parking lot next to our space. You are welcome to park in any of our 4 reserved spaces, or in any unmarked space. There is also plenty of street parking.
I need new shoes, but I don't know where to start. Can you help me?
Yes- we'd love to help you. We have a 3 part fitting process: measure your arch type, measure length and width the old fashioned way, and a treadmill gait analysis. We'll ask you some questions about how you'll be using the shoes (running (road, trails, treadmill), gym, everyday use, etc); any current or previous injuries, what you've liked/not liked in previous shoes, etc. No worries- there are no right or wrong answers. We use that information, along with your measurements, to narrow it down to 3 or 4 shoes that will best match up with you. After trying them on, we hope you will find a pair or 2 (or 3 or 4!) that you love. You should allow about 30 minutes for the entire fitting process and trying on shoes. You don't need an appointment, first come first serve!
