About ClubRun

ClubRun provides opportunities for runners of all ages and abilities to have fun running with friends old and new — no matter how fast, no matter how far!

Our Story

We’re a nonprofit independent running group, and we meet year round at Kenwood Community Center near the north side of Lake of the Isles in Minneapolis. We focus on two things: providing training for you to meet your running goals, and providing a welcoming atmosphere for runners with all levels of experience. We hope you enjoy these pages and invite you to come run with us. Visitors to the Twin Cities are welcome to join ClubRun for a run.

Club Run Activities

Club Run is really all about having fun running with friends and quality training. The activities of the Club take place as a result of the hardwork of member volunteers and coaches. Highlights of Club Run’s training, outreach, and social activities include:

  • Training for all ages and abilities at distances from one mile to the marathon
  • Social activities including, social night outs, breakfasts, and special events such as breakfast potlucks, wine tasting, pub crawls, and more

Frequently Asked Questions

What if I don’t know if I should be in the Intermediate class or the Marathon class?

In short: don’t sweat it. In long: Intermediate and marathon do very similar workouts, but with different distances and intensity. All classes meet at the same times and in the same places. Switch between workouts as you like. Everything we do is scalable: we can guide you in how to shorten, lengthen, slow down, or speed up whatever it is we’re doing that run. You’re never locked in to a single way of being a member of the club!

What if I’m only able to make it to certain runs each week?

Come as often as you can and as often as you like for the same low price! We have one membership level–you don’t have to deal with tiers of membership, a la carte add-ons, or constantly changing initiation and monthly fees. Once you’ve joined, we encourage you to come as often as you can and as often as you like! No punch cards, no attendance sheets, no limits. You are a Club Run member and will be receiving weekly coach’s e-mails so you can keep up with your training. You’ll also have other member benefits, including being invited to participate in all social events (where there are often good prizes) and special Marathon Sports discount shopping days.

May I come run with Club Run before signing up?

Yes please! We welcome friends, prospective members, visitors to the Twin Cities, and all others! If you can, email to let us know you’re coming, so that we can watch for you and say hi. If you decide to drop in, please introduce yourself! We’ll work to match you up with someone at approximately your pace and distance and make sure you get back safely. If after showing up a couple times you decide you want to join, great!
