If you're new to the group, come join us! We meet in front of Founders Brewing Co. EVERY Wednesday evening at 6:30pm (no matter what the weather is like).
Here's what we do:
6:30 PM meet at Founders Brewing Co. (just inside the front door during colder weather out front during warmer days)
-Head North on Grandville to Fulton.
-Then head up (East) Fulton to Lafayette, then go down and back up 3 hills (Lyon, Fountain, and Michigan St.). It is your choice if you want to go all the way down and back up or just cut it in half... this makes it so we can all stay together no matter your pace.
-Once we all gather at the top of Michigan St. hill we'll head to the stairs over by Division/Plainfield. Do as many sets of stairs as you'd like and meet at the bottom when you're done.
-From the stairs we'll head back to Founders, zig zagging our way back through downtown. *Please make sure you run back with at least one other person... the "buddy system" is strongly suggested.
-We'll end at Founders Brewing Co. for refreshments and food.
*This route ends up being about 5.5 miles (if you do the full hills) but of course, cutting the hills in half will also decrease the mileage.
**We meet all year round, even in the rain, snow, sleet, etc. Please dress for the weather. Bring some sweats and dry, warm clothes for hanging out at Founders after the run.
