Beginner Running Group

Want to get into better shape, meet new people, or just get out and enjoy the crisp morning air in beautiful downtown Madison? Join us for an easy run every Monday morning at 8:00 am from now until the end of October.  We will meet at the downtown store (216 N. Henry St.) and go for a 30-45 minute run from there. Pace and distance will be determined based on who shows up but this group is geared for beginners.

The group is led by Crystal who is a vet of several marathons, and numerous halves and other races; pick her brain for training tips and race advise. This is a free event but space is limited.  Contact Elizabeth at 608-662-9706 to reserve your spot.

In 2012, Hilaree climbed Everest and its neighbor, Lhotse, within 24 hours. In doing so, she joined an elite group of alpinists who possess the endurance to link two 8000-meter peaks in a single push and became sole the woman to accomplish this feat. Hilaree is the mother of two young boys, whom she and her husband raise in the high mountains of Telluride, Colorado. Named by Outside Magazine as one of the most adventurous women in sports, she has skied from the 8000-meter Himalayan summit of Cho Oyu in Tibet, throughout the Andes, on volcanoes in the Kamchatka Peninsula of Russia, and in the tight couloirs of Baffin Island.
