Running or walking with a group is a fun way to explore new neighborhoods and meet fellow runners. The enthusiasm of Eugene's running community spills over into organized group runs, many of which are open to visitors for drop-in running. If you are training for a 5K or marathon, adding a group run to your weekly schedule is a great way to achieve accountability. Some of the local running groups offer specific training schedules in advance of the Eugene Marathon or other popular events. 

  • Run Hub Northwest — This family-friendly running store founded by a local, passionate runner, hosts weekly runs from their downtown Eugene storefront that all can join. For those seeking coaching and a consistent training schedule, Rub Hub also has the Big Timber Running Club which is fee-based. 
  • Eugene Running Company — Another local running store, this one at Oakway Center in Eugene hosts an all-levels inclusive weekly run along Pre's Trail in Alton Baker Park. Likewise, they also offer marathon training for a fee.
  • Oregon Track Club — Find a monthly 5K or running event, open to all ages and abilities to put your training to the test. Along with fitness tips and resources, these events are a great way to find your community and to learn how to make your best time.
  • Silenus Run Club — formerly centered at Ninkasi Better Living Room, this fun-loving, social group of runners meets regularly for a run and a craft beer — now at Drop Bear Brewery in South Eugene.
  • Drew Brew Crew — fast and fun, this weekly running group works on speed and then slows down with a craft beer at The Bier Stein. As initial meet up sites change, link up with them first for this week's location.
