Grove Park Running Club
We are Grove Park running/walking Club. Our vision is an inclusive, welcoming community of runners and walkers who enjoy running and walking for the health of it - regardless of ability. Our members are a bunch of avid runners and walkers who enjoy the comradery of running with like-minded people. Someone in the group is always training for a 5k, 10k, marathon or triathlon - if you are looking for company for a long run, you will find someone to join you. Likewise, if you are just looking to start running and walking for fun and a little exercise, there are individuals here doing the same. We are a very welcoming and laid back group of socially minded runners and walkers.
Our mission is to host a 6:00 pm run/walk every Tuesday of the year at Grove Park. Courses of a variety of distances are available each week. The Grove Club welcomes regular attendees and visitors free of charge. There is an option to become a member for a nominal yearly fee. Members participate in our incentive program. This program rewards members with running related items based on attendance.
Additionally, the Club meets every Sunday at 8am for runs - locations vary with a pre-published schedule. Distance and pace varies with runners and walkers doing anywhere from 2 miles to 10+ miles.
Not only does this Club run/walk, we also focus on giving back to local organizations and charities. We support People’s Place, as well as volunteer with the Adopt-a-Highway Program. We do an annual fundraiser and award a scholarship to support athletes and scholars in the Cape Henlopen School District beyond their high school years.
Doesn’t all this sound awesome!!!! Come join us!
