North End Runners FAQ
All the info you need in one place, if you don’t see your question here, get at us and we’ll fix it.
Every Wednesday, rain or shine. We roll at 6PM SHARP, so it’s good to show up a little early.
The laces by the oval on the common.
➡️ 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?
Until we find a new permanent home, bag drop availability may vary. Some weeks you can stow your gear with us. We will have hand sanitizer. Check our weekly post for bag drop news.
💰 How much is it?
👥 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?
We have plans to make some new tees in spring 2022, stay tuned.
🐺 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.
💪 Do you do speed workouts or long runs too?
From around May to the end of December we run an interval or hill workout called #TNT (Dynamite Mondays) on the common or Citadel Hill, and on weekends you can find us in the congregation at #nerchurch or #nersundayschool. Extracurricular NER runs aren’t always on social.
