Run, walk, or stroll along the beautiful Mary Carter Greenway Trail with us on Sunday mornings.
Whether you enjoy more of a leisurely pace or training for your next 5K or 10K race – women of all ages and all levels of fitness are encouraged and welcome.
Enjoy a scenic route along the South Platte River (often times spotting birds or other wildlife) on a fast and flat running route that offers both paved concrete and crushed stone/dirt paths for those who prefer a softer, more forgiving surface on their bodies.
The Sunday Morning Run Group is a good choice to consider joining if you are just starting out with running, getting back into running, had an intense workout with the Distance Divas on Saturday, or if Sunday mornings just fit your schedule. Run, jog, run/walk, or walk with a buddy, in a larger group, or alone – we all meet with the group before and after the hour.
We start five minutes prior to our run time near the large message board at the parking lot to the right of the Carson Nature Center with announcements and introductions.
Run time is set at 8:00 am from the weekend after Labor Day until the weekend before Memorial Day. The weekend after Memorial Day we switch to 7:30 am to alleviate some of the summer heat. The Sunday Morning Run Group meets every Sunday during the year (snow is cleared from the concrete path).
After exercising for an hour, feel free to join us at the nearby Panera Bread Company for some breakfast and socializing. Whether you are looking to forge some new friendships or seeking encouragement towards meeting your fitness goals, this group of women has the Columbines spirit of empowering women every Sunday morning.
