Tell us a bit about TMIRCE history
TMIRCE has been running and funning for 10 years in Boston and beyond. With humble beginnings in Cambridge, a group of friends wanted to run together on Saturday's. Naturally, this run became a staple with potluck brunch happening post run every week. We've grown and spread to 6 other cities nation-wide.
Nice! what sort of runners typically run with the group?
TMIRCE is a no dues, always free run club. We have a 100% guarantee that you'll have the best run ever. Whether you're a first time runner, a former college athlete, or a seasoned marathoner, we're about personal connection through running.
Where/when do you usually meet and run?
Monday: Lululemon Prudential center 6:00pm
Tuesday: McCurdy Outdoor Track, Harvard 6:30pm
Saturday: Brunch Run, Eastern Mountain Sports Commonwealth Ave. (at Babcock St. ) 10:00am
Other: Connect with other members to go on long runs, tempo runs and other social outings.
Any cost to be a member/join?
Is the club affiliated with any events?
We don’t host any events.
Where are your favourite spots to run in/around Boston?
We love the Charles River Path anywhere from Watertown to Museum of Science. We run the City Walk all the way to JFK for our distance runners. We love training in the Newton Hills on the Boston Marathon course. We also like to throw impromptu 5k races around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir.
Do you personally have any favourite local races?
We love racing together. We have group running teams going to the Maine Coast Marathon and Half Marathon, the Horseneck Half Marathon, and we promote racing with the Cambridge 5k Race series. We love the Harpoon events as well.
Anything else that we should know?
Our purpose is to create a style and culture of running that focuses on people first. It's a reaction to exclusivity, it's a response to being told no.
We are committed to running and eating together.
We are committed to free workouts for everyone.
We are committed to first-timers being known.
We are committed to pies in the face.
We are committed to today being the best day, ever. GONG!
