This run is recommended for runners who want to build their mileage to train for races, or are looking for a midweek longer recovery run. Weʼll usually suggest a turnaround point if youʼd prefer a shorter run.

Pace: Open. We usually split into two or three pace groups: one running about 7:00–8:00 minute miles, another about 8:00–8:30 minute miles, and another approximately 8:30–9 minute miles. If you canʼt maintain that pace for an extended period, you’re still welcome to join us! But we recommend knowing the route, bringing a buddy, or posting on the Google Group to see if anyone wants to run at your pace. The more the merrier.


Some standard routes: (Please check the NBR Google Group for what weʼll be running that particular week.)
