All the info you need in one place, if you don’t see your question here, get at us and we’ll fix it.

⌚ When?

Every Wednesday, rain or shine. We roll at 6PM SHARP, so it’s good to show up a little early.

📍 Where?

We meet at the shoelace sculpture by the Oval on the common for a 6pm start. Please move in off the sidewalk to give the community space to move around the crew. Washrooms are open by the Oval.

➡️ How far does the crew run?

6K. Every week there’s an alternate 4K distance (‘the option’).

⚡ How fast does the crew run?

Some like to rocket, some like to cruise — whatever your pace, you can usually find a buddy.

We only ask that you go hard or go home, and are able to run for at least 1-hour straight before linking up with the crew for the 6k distance (anyone unable to meet the requirement is asked to join the 4K crew for a more accessible distance and an easier pace).

🎒 Is there a safe place to stow my stuff?

Bag drop availability may vary. Some weeks, you can stow your gear with us. Check insta for bag drop news.

💰 How much is it?

Free.

👥 Can anyone come?

All are welcome.

🐕 Can I bring my pup?

Dogs who own runners are welcome too but make sure your dog has experience running in a large group.

🎽 Can I get a shirt?

New swag drops annually, stay tuned for news on our socials.

🐺 Does NER run trail?

NER trail runs aren’t regularly scheduled like our weekly road runs. We run the woods when nature and weather permit. Keep it locked on social to stay updated on when you can link up with the NER Trail crew when they hit the woods.

⛪ Did I hear NER runs long too?

Heck yes! Every Sunday, the long run crew celebrates the weekend with a special distance service with two pace groups, “Church,” at a 5:30/K pace and “Sunday School,” at 6:00/K (named for the Church of the Long Run). Two distances: 12K and 8K, routes vary from week to week. The crew leaves at 8am sharp during the hot summer months, and switches to aa 9am roll-out from September through May. The meet-up spot is by the drinking fountain on the common, beside the intersection of Cornwallis and North Park streets.

🍻 Did I hear you like beer?

It’s true. Especially our colab with North Brewing Co, Little Beast Lagered Ale, now available at the NSLC. There’s a sociable after the first run of every month, locations vary.
