In an effort to UNITE the running community of Emporia, we are happy to share with you several weekly opportunities to get together and do what we all love to do--RUN (or walk)!  These group runs will be free for anyone in the community to participate in, and you are welcome to join regardless of ability or experience level.  Currently, our group leaders practice the policy of "no man left behind", and thus each group will run at the pace of the slowest runner.  As participation grows, we would LOVE to offer multiple 'pace groups' as well as put multiple leaders into a rotation, so if you are interested in being a group leader, please "Contact Us" through this page to volunteer!  Also, be sure to join our RunEmporia Facebook group to stay up-to-date and get involved!


Gravel City Adventure Saturday Morning Trail Run

When:  9 AM every Saturday

Where:  ESU Trails, located on the north side of campus (north of the Interstate via the tunnel off of Highland Street)

What:  This is a beginner-friendly trail run, and a great opportunity to meet up with other runners.  One lap of the river trail is approx. 1.8 miles.  Walk, jog, or run one lap or more.  All paces and experience levels welcome!

In the event that the trails are muddy, we will run the gravel road (18th Ave) out and back. No excuse not to come join us!
