RIVER RUNNERS RUN CLUB

January 20 @ 8:00 am - 11:30 pm

River Runners Facebook Cover

Looking to add some fun to your running routine? Join the River Runners Run Club! Each week we will meet in a new location somewhere in the general area of Rockford, MN. This group welcomes all runners of all abilities. Whether you are an ultra runner, a 5K racer, or a non-racer, this group is meant for people who simply love to run and to connect with other runners.

WINTER RUN HOURS IN EFFECT:  8:00 A.M. START THROUGH FALL AND WINTER!

Happy 2018, River Runners! 

RUN CLUB FOR SATURDAY, JANUARY 20th, 2018 IS AT RIVERSIDE PARK IN ROCKFORD!

Woo hoo!  Temps are looking quite reasonable for this weekend, so it’s back to the great outdoors! 2018 has started off on a very chilly foot, so we are excited to run outside together again. Every runner is welcome regardless of pace or experience. Our Saturday runs are pretty casual. Connecting with each other and getting caught up with the latest scoop is our main concern on these runs! Our club is a very welcoming, friendly group and we’d love to have you join us, and even better yet – bring a friend!  Meet us there by 7:55, and we’ll hit the road/trail by 8:00. Any distance. Any pace. See you Saturday!

READY FOR THE COLD!

Wondering what to wear when it’s super cold outside? Making some smart clothing choices can change a miserable run into a perfectly enjoyable run! The items in this picture are a great example of what to wear on a cold day like this upcoming Saturday. The only thing missing, possibly, would be one additional layer (I’ll be adding that third layer in the form of a long sleeve shirt over the smart wool base layer. A great “ingredient” to have as part of your running wardrobe is merino wool (Ice Breaker and Smart Wool are two brands that offer merino wool options). It’s expensive, but totally worth the price as you will be wearing it for years – especially in this state! In this pic, I’ve got a pair of merino wool long underwear (Ice Breaker), merino wool socks (Smart Wool), a great pair of cross country ski pants (Craft) that are fantastic at blocking the wind and keeping me dry, a Smart Wool neck gator, a merino wool (Ice Breaker) base layer shirt, a cold weather running jacket by Brooks that fits nice and snug and does a great job of blocking the wind, a wool cap, mittens (I prefer mittens over gloves when it’s super cold), and additional helpers such as hand warmers and Warm Skin lotion. The Huma gel is in there, because I forgot to move it before taking the picture.  I find thin layers to be better than less layers that are more bulky. We’d love to hear ways that you make cold weather a great time to run!
