“FOR WHERE TWO OR THREE GATHER IN MY NAME, THERE AM I WITH THEM.” (MATTHEW 18:20)
Join us as we come together as a running community to train weekly throughout the year! Michael Conforti (see bio below) will help club participants develop a running program that best suits their level of fitness and individual goals. Individuals of all fitness levels are welcome to participate provided they seek a doctor’s approval to engage in aerobic focused training program designed around a healthy running lifestyle. This group is 100% free and open to anyone in the community. We hope to see you there!

Why are we doing this as a church?
Put simply, the church is not the building, it’s the people. We want to make connections with people inside and outside of the church building and encourage each other. We hope to train for a race or two during the year in order to raise money/ awareness for missions and/or needs in our community.
Due to COVID, there are currently no races for us to sign up and work towards.
However, we are always looking and might consider doing an “in house race”.
