|As if you needed another reason to get out and run|
I get questions all the time about where the best places in San Diego are to run. I'm bias and I love running everywhere that San Diego Track Club takes me. From the beach to the trails, we run it all. But when I'm not with SDTC, I'm lucky enough to have other groups to run with!! Here are a list of running clubs/groups in the area. Check them out and go get your miles in!
Milestone Running Club - Milestone Running is proud to host a weekly run club in the North Park neighborhood. Being located in North Park, we are just a few blocks away from a number of different running routes and trails in San Diego's Balboa Park.
Early Bird Run Club - Shelter Island, Sail Bay, and Harbor Island
Santee Women's Running Meetup - This is a group for anyone looking for a running buddy. I started this group to meet other runners (or want to be runners) in my area who are in search of an accoutibilibuddy.
San Diego Running Meet Up Group - The San Diego Running Meetup is a great place to meet other San Diego runners. We've got a great group of organizers who keep the calendar full of events. From track workouts to trail runs, all level of runners are welcome. If you're looking for a running partner, come to some of the planned events, or post a message. With over 4000 members, you're bound to find another runner with similar goals as you.
The San Diego North County Running Meetup - Meet others in your local area to Run with. Plan group runs and participate in various long and short distance running. We currently have a growing group of runners who train together in North County San Diego. We try to get in a track workout and a trail run every week. We are a laid back group and welcome runners of all levels and abilities.
North Park Women's Running Group -Would love to meet some other women runners in the area! I am not a fast runner by any means (I run anywhere between a 9:30-11 minute mile) and would like this group to be a place where we can get together and take nice runs around Balboa Park. This is a weekly running group for women where we'll go on 3-5 mile runs around the park and then grab a drink afterwards at one of North Park's many awesome spots. We will meet at Bird Park (Upas & 28th) every week and I will post the route the day before so you can print it out if you like. Hope to see you there!
SD Fun Run - It's pretty straightforward. We're a group of people that like to RUN and have fun! Every Wednesday we meet at a different local bar throughout San Diego, go for a run, and finish back at the bar to cool down and socialize over drinks. If you're in your 21-30s (or just think you can hang) with a fun and outgoing personality looking to meet new people, then come join us! All running paces are welcome! Whether you are new to San Diego, or just want to escape the humdrum of everyday life, these Wednesday runs are a great way to unplug.
King of the Hill Trail Running - This meetup is for anyone that currently runs off road or is interested in giving trail running a try. We meet at various times throughout the week to check out some of the incredible local trails around San Diego. It's free and open to all.
Run North County - Run North County is dedicated to promoting and supporting locally organized Fun Runs in North County, San Diego.
