Welcome Freshii!

We have exciting news, members! We are very pleased to announce a brand new membership sponsor for 2018… Freshii!


Freshii’s mantra is Eat. Energize. We felt that fit in perfectly with what our members want to do, so when you buy a GP Run/Walk membership for 2018, you will get 10% off at Freshii. Borrowed from their website, Freshii has “7 different menu categories – bowls, burritos, salads, wraps, soups, smoothies & juices – and each one is full of innovation.” Find them across from Intersport (another club sponsor!) on the west side.

If you’ve already purchased a membership for 2018, check your email for a note about how to get your discount (it’s a pass-phrase, rather than showing your card).

Spring Training Registration is Open

Thinking about getting into running or walking a race this year?  Or maybe you have some experience but want to try a new distance.  The GP Run/Walk Club is offering Spring Training to all our members, starting March 12.  Our Spring Training is a great way to meet new friends who will share in your experience.  The end goal is to have you ready to run or walk in the Brian Harms Memorial and/or the DHT Press Run.  Having a race as a goal is a great way to stay motivated throughout your training.

Group training is every Sunday at 9:00 a.m. run, shine, or snow (yes, it’s all outdoors!) and you’ll be given homework for the rest of the week.

We offer the following distances (subject to change, depending on demand):

  • 5K Beginner Run (A perfect place to start! This distance may seem daunting to beginners, but we will help you get there!)
  • 10K Walk
  • 10K Beginner
  • 10K Intermediate (have run a 10k before, but perhaps want to improve your time)
  • 10K Walk
  • 21K
  • 21K Walk
  • Interested in another group not listed?  Email us at gprunwalk@gmail.com

We offer a relaxed and laid back approach to running, our group leaders are there to:

  • encourage you along the way
  • make sure you know where you’re going
  • ensure no one is left behind
  • ensure no one is pushing themselves harder than they should

If you’re interested in becoming a group leader, email us at gprunwalk@gmail.com.
