The Ann Arbor Track Club seeks to be a resource for running in the Ann Arbor area. Listed here are local group running activities that are open to the public and welcoming of new participants.
We recommend that you check the status of any race, workout or group run with the contact.
Some, but not all, of the listed group runs and workouts are affiliated with the Ann Arbor Track Club. Participants take part in all activities at their own risk.We are in the process of expanding our reach into the community. To support this enterprise, please feel free to join: $30 gets you connected to a growing community of like-minded people! See you on the road or trails, or at the track sometime soon!
