Community Running Club

What: A community running club in the Cumberland-Attleboro area that is hosted by NE Distance! Participants have the option to meet up to three times a week for speed and endurance workouts designed and supervised by the coaches.

Who: This club is for EVERYONE! Any and all fitness levels are welcome to join. Whether you’re a local road race veteran or beginner training for your very first race, there is a place for you. We cater our sessions to fit the needs and fitness levels of all members. Our goal is to help everyone find joy and satisfaction in running. 

Why: This club is designed to help members of our community improve their health and fitness, reach their racing goals, and simply enjoy the sport of running in a fun and supportive environment. Participation also helps to support NE Distance’s mission to bring athletic programs to under-served children in Rhode Island. Click here to learn more about NE Distance's mission.
