Runners invited to join downvalley fun run club

Aspen Times Staff Report

Ready for a run?

Runners from throughout the Roaring Fork Valley are invited to join the fledgling Glenwood Springs Running Club for a Saturday morning fun run.

The runners will meet at 8 a.m. Saturday at Safeway, along Grand Avenue in Glenwood Springs. A low-key, fun run will follow. Runners can run up to a six-mile course on Saturday morning. Shorter loop runs also are available.

There is no change and runners of all ages and abilities are invited.

The downvalley running club is the brainchild of Steve White of Glenwood Springs. He and several of his running pals decided to organize an informal running club in the lower Roaring Fork Valley.

The group is starting a regular routine of Saturday morning runs, giving runners a chance to run together.

“We just want people to come and run and have some fun,” said Steve White of Glenwood Springs (also known as the Carbondale Culligan man).

“We’d like to keep it going every Saturday morning,” White said. “We can do a variety of runs, depending on what the group wants.”

He said some runners may opt for longer workouts while other runners prefer shorter 5K distances.

By forming the loose-knit running club, he said runners can meet other runners with similar interests and distances in mind.

“We have a lot of great places to run here. It will be great to share those with other runners,” White added.

He said similar informal running clubs have become very popular all across the country. He cited the example of the Aspen Running Club, an informal running group that is active through the summers in Aspen.

“We’re hoping that runners will call their friends and invite them to join us on Saturday,” White said.

“If you can’t make it this week, come and run next week,” White added.

Runners interested in more information on the new running club should call White at home (947-9048) or at work during the day (963-2273).
