The Bronx is running. You’ve probably seen at least one of these running groups posting their next meetup on social media, but if you’ve been meaning to find a group near you- now is your chance. All of the groups below are open to members of all running paces (or walking!) and are all about keeping the Bronx fit and healthy. So grab a friend and finally stick to those plans you had about working out together.
Check out the groups below and let us know if we’re missing any!

After the run, the group stays at the establishment for social hour. The restaurant offers Happy Hour menu, despite the time, and always allows separate checks.

Hi there …
I’m not sure how often you update this page, but when you do, please add a relatively new Bronx running group to the mix: PINTS & PAVEMENTS.
The group meets on Tuesday nights at 7pm, for a 5K run (all levels). Meetup location changes from week to week, but will always start and end at a local bar/restaurant that arranges bag check for us. After the run, we stay at the establishment for social hour. The restaurant lets us order from the Happy Hour menu, despite the time, and always allows separate checks. It is a great way to run and be social. (Oh, and we have a walking group as well.)
