Tell us a bit about the group history.
We are Running Room Lethbridge. We are a small store right beside Starbucks on the busy road of Mayor Magrath drive. We get customers from all over, including British Columbia, the states( Utah, Montana), and very far north like Grand Prairie.
The Running Room is proudly a family-owned company which originated in 1984.
Nice! Tell us a bit about your members.
All types of runners come and run with us. Everyone can run at a different ability and their are programs for everyone. We have programs for women only and walking programs as well.
Where/when do you usually meet?
We meet at the Running Room store on Monday, Wednesday and Saturdays. Best to give us call at the store for the most updated times.
Any cost to be a member/join?
It’s free to be in the run club, but we also offer paid running programs.
Where are your favourite spots to run in/around the city?
We love to run up and down scenic drive because of the beautiful view of the coulees and it’s an easier run. Everyone can stay together and have fun with it.
Do you have any favourite local races? Outside of anything that you’re affiliated with :)
10/4 road race and the Moonlight Run. Lethbridge does these races every year and the community comes together. It is a great feeling for many racers.
Anything else that we should know?
Running is not just a sport, it creates a community. Our run club caters to many different abilities if people only run a minute or 20 then we celebrate their accomplishments. Everyone is welcome even if your an expert runner or just starting out. Running has many health benefits and is fun with others.
