Local Running Links

The area has an awesome running community, here are some local groups that get together:


The Tuesday Night Turtles - An informal group that meets on Tuesday nights  at 6:30 p.m. in the parking lot just east of the Dayton Marriott Hotel. The distances vary from 3 to 9 miles over some fairly hilly roads through Dayton, Oakwood, and Kettering. If the hills are too daunting, the River Corridor bikeway is close by as well. The pace of these runs varies based on the individual, but we have runners of all calibers (anywhere from a sub 7:00 to 11:00 per mile pace) so there will most always be someone to run with. For more information, contact Danny Losekamp at (937) 426-3101 or Margaret Hurley at (937) 866-1735.

Five Rivers Running Team - We are individuals who win races and individuals who have not run a race yet. Some of us are training for another race and some of us are thinking about running our first race.  Until the weather improves, we are currently meeting at the indoor track in the Nutter Center on Mondays and Wednesdays at 6:00pm.  Hope to see you there.

Up And Running - Local running store that offers:  Mondays - spin at the store or bike outside; Tuesdays - 6pm group run from the Centerville store; Wednesdays - 6pm group run from the Troy store; Saturdays - group run from both stores (starst at 8am in winter and 7am in summer (DST).  Be sure to check out their calendar for other events and details.
