Get to Know Your Running Clubs - Revolution Running
In this edition of Get to Know Your Running Clubs we chatted with Ewen North. Ewen is the Owner, Director, and Head Coach of Revolution Running. He is also a former collegiate and post collegiate sub elite, and has been running since the age of 7. This is an excellent group for those looking to get coached and also participate in a socially fun atmosphere where comaraderie is equally as important as the training!

What part of the city does your group usually run in / around?
We have 5 locations spread across the Front Range of Colorado, Boulder, Denver, Erie, Fort Collins and Littleton (soon to open in Longmont and Parker too). In each location, we have 5 or 6 main meeting/run spots in each, all within about 20 mins of the central part of each city.
Tell us a bit about your club history, how long has the club been around?
The club has existed in various formats since 1998 under the BolderBOULDER 10K but became independent of that organization in 2011 and become known as 'Revolution Running' in 2013.
Tell us a bit about your membership? What level of runners do you cater to?
We cater to all abilities who want to improve, meet others and have fun in a coached group training environment.

Anything else that we should know?
We put a large emphasis on the social fun and group camaraderie side of things; in fact we feel this is equally as important as the training itself, if not more so!
