Run Oxford has four regularly scheduled weekly group runs, with something for every distance and pace of runner. Anyone can participate, so you do not need to be a member to join in! Routes/information for all four runs are regularly posted by their coordinators in advance on the Run Oxford Facebook page, and then reposted on our Instagram, Strava, and Twitter pages.
6 PM @ Oxford Middle School
This group run is oriented around speed work at the OMS track. Organized workout plans are available if desired. Track Tuesdays are coordinated by Elliott Beach.
6 PM @ The Oxford Growler
The Thirsty Thursday runs offer 3 and 5 mile routes, with the majority of runners doing the three mile route at a wide variety of paces. From time to time, a card for a free drink at the Growler is hidden along the route, and after the run, the group sticks around at the Growler for drinks and good times afterward. Thirsty Thursdays are coordinated by Dennis Caselman.
Long Run Saturdays
6:30 AM @ Heartbreak Coffee off the Square
Saturday is the day for our longest runs of the week, so we get started bright and early in front of Heartbreak Coffee downtown. All distances start at 6:30 AM, with the 7.5 mile, 5 mile, and 3 mile routes starting together with the shorter routes gradually peeling off to head back. We have a lead group that tends to run at an 8 minute mile pace, and a following group that tends to run between 9:30 and 10 minutes per mile. The Saturday Long Runs are coordinated by Jonathan Klingler.
Circle and Square Sundays
2 PM @ Circle & Square Brewery
The Circle and Square Sunday runs are our most laid back group runs of the week, with a standard 5K route connecting the Circle on campus with the Square downtown. Circle and Square Brewery offers our runners $1 off all full sized pints, as well, and after the run most people stick around afterward to chat over a drink or two. Circle and Square Sundays are coordinated by Julie Wronski.

Germantown Half Marathon Training/Carpool
March 9, 2024
A Run Oxford group will be running together in the Germantown Half Marathon in March, and we'll be ramping up our long runs on Saturday mornings by adding a few miles at the end of the posted 7.5 mile routes. If you're interested in running the race group, participating in Saturday morning training runs, and/or carpooling the day of the race, email Jonathan Klingler at firstname.lastname@example.org and register for the race at https://germantownhalf.raceroster.com/. We'd love to run with you!
Running with Ride Oxford at Circle and Square
February 25, 2024
Starting from February 25th, the Sunday Circle and Square Run will be a joint event with our local cycling friends at Ride Oxford.

This will be a great opportunity to crosstrain and still hang out with the club, so be sure to check it out!
