A reader writes in looking for running groups that originate out of the Church Hill area:
I know there is a group that runs from Millies, but they are too fast for me. I’ve seen others, but never had time to stop and ask!
I run with friends in the area and we do 12 minute or so miles..and sometimes walk. Email me if you’re interested in joining. We’re running tonight at 6:30.
What pace are you looking for? I run 8 1/2 or 9 minute miles and am always looking for more people to run with.
Yeah I’d be curious to hear what the ideal pace is for this group. I’m around a 9-10 minute mile guy, but always looking to improve. Would be fun to meet some new people too.
for anyone that is interested in the Millie’s Run, we leave between 5:30 and 5:45AM Tuesdays and Thursdays. Tuesday is usually the longer run 10-12miles. Usually a 8mm pace. Almost all trail running.
I would be interested in a CH running group. I’m in the 9:30 – 10 pace.
I’m a 10mm pace myself. I heard there was one that started out at Libby Hill on mondays or weds but don’t know what time they leave.
I’m a 10-11m miler myself, and would love to get together with neighbors for a run. I’d like to increase my speed a little, and would like to do trail and road running. If anyone wants to start a group, or knows when an existing group open to newbies runs, please let me know!
Church Hill Run
“We will meet at Libby Hill Park at the corner of N. 29th St. and Libbie Terrace near the monument. We typically run 5 miles at a 9-10 min. pace. Some members are faster. My cell # is (804) 349-6153 in case you have trouble finding us. There’s a possibility of drinks afterwards! :)”
